A great artist named Wesley Willis once pleaded with his audience to “Cut the Mullet.” (If you’re working right now, don’t play that song out loud. Just a suggestion.)

Most hockey players got that memo – even some of its greatest and most prominent proponents, such as Jaromir Jagr – but for the most part, Los Angeles Kings forward Ryan Smyth resisted such calls.

In a tribute to the savvy veteran’s 1,000th game, his mostly young teammates wore mullet wigs. Check out the amusing video at the top of this post to see more. (The highlight, for me at least, was a mulleted Anze Kopitar, although it’s hard to top it flowing from a goalie mask either.)
