Today's ESPN.com ode to hockey hair

By ESPN.com

We couldn't let Wednesday go by without giving a few shout-outs to some infamous hockey hair.

First, we start with a little late-night entertainment. Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock made an "appearance" during a skit on "Conan" last night. The show used an old clip of the coach as part of a "Local News Round-up" skit which ripped local news broadcasts. (Click here to watch the clip; go to "Part II" under the scene selection tab.)

We took the lead from a few of our Twitter-heads and decided to pay homage to one thing Babcock and Conan O'Brien have in common: solid domes.

And finally, the Vancouver Canucks gave us a great excuse to pay tribute to Harold Snepsts' 'stache. On Wednesday, he was selected for induction into the team's Ring of Honour.
