So, Versteeg is sporting a Macklemore-inspired ‘do for the playoffs

Beyond giving the Chicago Blackhawks another potential game-breaker, the trade that brought Kris Versteeg back to the “Windy City” also opened the door for the return of his various follicle shenanigans.

His 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs gameplan might be his best yet (or worst, depending upon your tastes). passes along word that Versteeg is modeling his hair after rapper Macklemore.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison, first with video of Versteeg:

“I call it the ‘Steeglemore,’” Versteeg said. “It’s a mix between myself, (rapper) Macklemore and a little bit of anything else in between. So, it’s got a lot going on here.”

This isn’t the first time the 27-year-old has mixed hip hop with hockey:

In all honesty, it’s mostly an exciting development because Versteeg always seems to have a trick up his sleeve when it comes to his appearance. PHT has gotten a lot of mileage out of his “Hulk Hogan hair”

Not to mention this excellent ‘stache:

Let’s face it, the only way he’s topping this is by going “Flock of Steegles.”

    Speaking as someone who has no opinion on this guy 30 seconds ago

    I now hate Kris Versteeg, just because of the epic level of lameness

    This guys hilarious. Overrated hockey player in my opinion, but funny person. Legendary golden locks, as well.

    man, what is with these haircuts …?

    everyone’s looking like an extra in the grapes of wrath or a thirties vintage big house flick … think grant wood’s american gothic

    hint: if your hairstylist is gay, odds-on you’ll be leaving the shop lighter of pocket and loafer

    Versteeg has a goal and an assist in the first period tonight.

    I kinda like when he looked like Farrah Fawcett. Much prettier.

    If you think Macklemore invented that hair style you need to live more, well, live and learn more.
