The North American Hockey League (NAHL) announced its Gongshow Flow
of the Month winners for December 2012. This month awards go to NAHL
player Matt Menta, a forward for the Soo Eagles and Tyler Groat, a forward for the Topeka Roadrunners.
Honorable Mentions went to (alphabetical): Mike Lafrenier, Jamie MacMinn
Menta, who is an 18-year-old forward for the Soo Eagles from Lima,
Pennsylvania, is having a solid season for the Eagles. He was traded to
Soo from Topeka back in late October and has thrived since. He has six
points in 12 games played with the Eagles after going pointless in 15
games with the RoadRunners. One of the secrets to his production in the
Soo is his flow, which he has been growing since the start of the
season. His blonde flow is well past shoulder length and has grown a
nice light-colored beard to match. This is the third month in a row an
Eagles player has won the award. The Eagles are in 1st place in the
North Division, so maybe there is something to some nice looking flow?
The other award for December went to Tyler Groat, an 18-year-old
forward from Wyandotte, Michigan, who plays for the Topeka RoadRunners.
Groat has had a solid rookie campaign, registering six points in 22
games played this season. In October and November, Groat had a stretch
of six games in which he scored all six of his points. We think his
flow for December is long and flowing enough to get him back on the
scoring track. Like his co-winner Menta, Groat has gone with the old
blonde, slicked back, mullet classic style of hair, which is perfect for
cold nights in the winter and blowing in the wind as he flies down the
ice. As a matter of fact, he and Menta could be twins. This is how
hockey flow is supposed to look halfway through the season.
Now that the calendar has turned over to 2013, there is no better way
to start the New Year than with a resolution to grow a nice and
memorable flow. A nice flow during the month of January is a great way
to not only stay warm, but get players through the heart of the season
when playoff positioning starts to take shape.
