Last week, New York Rangers forward Artemi Panarin shocked fans with a brand new look when he posted a picture that showed how he shaved his entire head. A photograph of Panarin began to make the rounds on social media after he was photographed alongside a fan in what was described as a return to his homeland of Korkino. But his messy long hair was gone and immediate, fans started to wonder how uncomfortable the new hairdo would be under a helmet.
Because the haircut has to do with hockey! According to Match TV, “Panarin made the decision to shave his head to reset a bad stage of his career and remove evil forces that may have been in his hair.”
But I’m not sure what’s weirder the reason behind the new look or the new look itself.
Let’s see how he does in 2023-24 to decide whether the haircut is a keeper or not.
