Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson made waves on social media after a photo at Wednesday's practice showed him donning a new haircut sans his long flowing locks.

Just bumped into Cyril Leeder, had to ask about The Haircut. "Daniel had 30 different styles over the years, I'm sure Erik will too." #Sens— @alistairsteele
Karlsson, 25, has been known for his speed, his offence — and his hair.
Like the team's former captain Daniel Alfredsson, he decided to shave off the locks and go for aerodynamics.
