Hal Gill mohawk

Hal Gill is ready to go, and he’s got the Mohawk to prove it.

Nashville’s big shutdown defenseman will make his 2012 playoff debut tonight in Phoenix after missing the entire Detroit series with a lower-body injury.

“I’m recharged and I’m feeling better and I think we’re ready to go,” Gill said, as per Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean.

As mentioned, Gill will be sporting a Mohawk at Jobing.com Arena, following the lead of Preds defenseman Kevin Klein.

“Kleiner’s got the best one. Of course I want to give him credit,” Gill said. “I don’t want to upset anyone.”

Two other blue-liners, Francis Bouillon and Roman Josi, have Mohawks.

We’re not sure if the Nashville forwards plan to have a haircut theme, but if they do, we wouldn’t recommend the Andrei Kostitsyn:
