Hartnell cuts hair for charity
Scott Hartnell will be missing something when he and the Philadelphia Flyers host the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight -- most of his trademark long hair.
Scott Hartnell will be missing something when he and the Philadelphia Flyers host the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight -- most of his trademark long hair.

Hartnell, whose lengthy locks were one of the NHL's most distinctive hair styles, had almost all of his hair cut off for charity. He'll donate the hair to "Locks for Love," a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 who've suffered long-term medical hair loss.

Hartnell told FlyersTV it was his first haircut in more than three years.

"I decided it was time for a change," he said. "It feels good."

He also joked about the necessary equipment.

"Some hedge clippers, some weed whackers and a shovel to pick up all the hair afterwards," he said.

Hartnell's hair was famous enough to have its own Facebook page, and to have been part of a giveaway by the Flyers last season.

One player does not make your team. One player can help your team, but one player does not make your team. We're not a bare-bones organization.
