Nikolaj Ehlers fought cancer with his haircut Monday.

The Winnipeg Jets forward had Hockey Fights Cancer shaved into his hair before the team's awareness night against the Minnesota Wild at Bell MTS Centre.

The cut, which went around the side of his head and included crossing sticks and a ribbon with the word "fights" in between, was completed by Scott Ramos, a Winnipeg-based hairstylist. Ehlers showed off the haircut during warmups, when he participated without a helmet on.

It isn't the only way players have supported the initiative this year, but is certainly one of the most creative.
