Detroit Hockey Now’s Bob Duff notes the following amusing storyline:
During Jeff Blashill’s NHL coaching career, new strands of hair on his head sprout up about as often as victories.
For both of those reasons, the Detroit Red Wings coach is somewhat fascinated by Red Wings prospect Chase Pearson.
“With respect to Chase, number one I like his flow,” the follicly-challenged Blashill admitted. “I think his flow looks great. It’s something I’m super jealous of that I wish I could still have. I used to have a flow just like that back in high school. It was pretty high end, I guess I would say.”
Pearson’s wild, out of control hairstyle is certainly making him stand out in the crowd of hopefuls seeking to get noticed during Red Wings training camp.
“This is a quarantine experiment,” Pearson explained of his flowing locks. “Let’s see how long it can go. I’m going with it.”
