A group of six St. Cloud State University men’s hockey players are going with the “flow” this season and letting their hair grow out. The end result will be a hair donation to the Locks of Love program when they reach the proper length of 10 inches in a pony tail.
Locks of Love provides supplies for hairpieces and wigs for those going through cancer treatment.
Junior forward Nic Dowd, Huntsville, Ala., was the first to start growing his hair out near the end of the 2011-12 season. Teammates senior Ben Hanowski, Little Falls, freshman David Morley, Richmond Hills, Ontario, sophomore Tim Daly, Maple Ridge, British Columbia, junior Cory Thorson, Crystal, and junior Nick Jensen, Rogers, all opted to join the good cause in the summer.
The unique story has caught the interest of the media with stories on Twin Cities television and in the St. Cloud Times.
