NEWARK, N.J. -- You see left wing Dustin Penner these days, really, any of the Kings with their massive playoff beards and you start humming the lyrics to an old favorite song, “Hair.”
“Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there, hair, shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy...”
Penner and defenseman Willie Mitchell are looking an awful lot like lumberjacks these days.
Shooting a remake of “Paul Bunyan”? Clearly, these would be your guys.
Penner says he gets his sense of humor from his mother. But it sounds as if she is not commenting much on her son’s facial hair growth.
