Golden Knights Karlsson cutting his hair is ‘just something new’

Updated November 5, 2018 - 5:02 pm

Golden Knights center William Karlsson insists he didn’t cut his hair to change his luck.

“It was getting long, so I just wanted a haircut,” Karlsson explained. “I was like, ‘Let’s go kind of short so I have room to grow it, you know?’ That’s pretty much what it is. Just something new.”

Karlsson has three goals in 14 games after posting a career-high 43 last season. When informed a large section of his fanbase — mostly female — are disappointed his blond locks were reduced, Karlsson rolled his eyes and blushed.

“It’ll be back in a month or two,” he said. “They don’t have to worry.”
