Rheault draws notice from Calgary … newspaper.

Jon Rheault still hasn’t gotten a haircut, and people fans of the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford (B.C.) Heat are taking notice.

Writes Kristen Odland in the Calgary Herald:

While he’s been memorable on the Abbotsford Heat scoresheet during
their second-round American Hockey League playoff series against the
Hamilton Bulldogs, Rheault’s flowing locks are the town’s real

During Tuesday night’s 3-2 loss in Game 3 of
the North Division best-of-seven final series at the Abbotsford
Entertainment and Sports Centre, the publicity of his hockey hair
reached a new level.

“It’s getting a little bit out of control,”
said the 23-year-old former East Coast Hockey Leaguer, who hasn’t had a
hair cut since July 1 and is growing it long to raise funds to fight
cancer. “(Tuesday) night, I was glancing up at the scoreboard during one
of the timeouts and I saw a sign that said, ‘We love No. 85. We love
your hair.’ I thought that was kind of funny.

Rheault’s six postseason goals lead the Heat, who trail the Hamilton Bulldogs in their best-of-seven AHL semifinal series 2 games to 1 heading into tonight’s Game 4.
