Brian Burke is no stranger to making headlines and now his hair is no different.

During a Calgary Flames press conference Thursday announcing the firing of GM Jay Feaster, Burke, the team’s president of hockey operations, showed up at the podium with his hair looking a bit rugged. Maybe it’s really windy in Calgary?

Within minutes of the press conference starting, it seemed more people on social media were discussing Burke’s funky follicles rather than the managerial change.

Even Burke’s kids poked fun at him on Twitter.
