Zack Kassian has gone and done it. He’s business in the front and party in the back right now with a fresh playoff mullet.
I’ve never been one for mullets, too many family reunions maybe, but Kassian is wearing it like a pro.
I spoke to Kassian post-practice and he couldn’t be prouder of the masterpiece hairdo he’s currently sporting.
"It’s playoff hockey, you’ve got to have fun with it, it’s a fun time of year," he smiled. "The guys and I were talking about what I could do, obviously my hairstyle wasn’t the best before, so the mullet couldn’t have made it any worse. I just went with it."
Despite kind offers from teammates to help cut his hair, Kassian went to a professional and got it done right. The reviews have been positive so far - “the guys like it, but I don’t know if they’d do it” - so Kassian is moving on to ensure the reviews are equally as good for his playoff performance this post-season.
Kassian is set to line-up with Ryan Kesler and Chris Higgins on Vancouver’s second trio.
"Nothing is written in stone, but I’ll take it a shift at time and show that I can play there, contribute and play my role."
