Gentlemen, it is true that Hank has a teensyweensey bit of extra time during the regular season and a bit more during the playoffs.
Please note, however, that Hank is not now as he always was. He used to be clean-shaven during the regular season and only grow a beard for the playoffs. Now he wears a beard year-round.
Had he had a beard full-time during the length of his career, his ice time would be higher during the regular season also. Also, it was during his unbearded days that he had trouble with his wrist and back that kept him from playing. (He also was single when he had wrist and back troubles, but I'm sure that's a coincidence and it's actually the lack of the beard that had hindered him.)
Quite simply, the more facial hair Z sprouts, the greater his ice time.
Money on the board: Current total: 0
$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.
Hamsters I have had: (current Wings highlighted)
