Nelson Leafs goaltender Brad Rebagliati has decided to get rid of his long locks. The local player will be collecting pledges from people to have his hair cut on March 15. Funds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Leafs goaltender Rebagliati to cut hair for cancer

The Nelson Leafs goaltender has agreed to cut his long locks in an effort to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

He’s used to facing pucks flying at him at high speeds, but next month Brad Rebagliati will face a new challenge — hair clippers.

The Nelson Leafs goaltender has agreed to cut his long locks in an effort to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

“March 15 is when I’m doing the hair cut,” said Rebagliati.

Anyone attending a Leafs game will likely have noticed that Rebagliati has a bit of a ritual before each period. He removes his mask, pours water on his face, shakes the hair from around his eyes and puts his mask back on.

It remains to be seen if he needs to do that after his trim.

Donation forms will be available at the next Leafs home game (Friday, February 14) for people to make pledges.

“We just really want to raise money and help a great cause.”

The event is being called Nelson Leafs Cut For A Cure and more players may decide to join in. While he’s not sure, Rebagliati said he thinks he’s convinced Blair Andrews to cut his hair as well.

“Everyone has been touched by someone, a family friend or whatever, who has had cancer. For me it was a good friend growing up and then my grandmother had cancer.

“I mean, I’ve been growing my hair for quite a while so I just figured it was the right thing to do,” said the netminder.
