Pittsburgh Penguins star Phil Kessel might want to do something about his hair.

An image of Kessel in the locker room is circulating the web, and I’m going to go ahead and say something has to be done.

I’m sorry, but you can’t be an NHL star with that kind of hair. It’s simply not an option. NHL players are all about the flow. It’s one of the reasons I actually had to give up my hockey career. I knew that didn’t have the luscious hair to compete at the highest levels.

This is a terrible look for the league as a whole. I’m going not going to tell commissioner Gary Bettman what to do, but I do know that is simply unacceptable. The NHL can almost certainly afford to break off a couple dollars to get him some hair implants.

Until this dude gets his hair fixed, I’m just not sure we can take the NHL’s hair game seriously anymore. It’s just a damn shame.
