New York Islanders Daily: Scott Mayfield Donates Hair For Charity
By Matt O'Leary
New York Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield cut off his hair to donate it to charity. It was worth giving up the flow for a good cause.
Scott Mayfield recently was in our Top 5 New York Islanders twitter personalities. He’s a very entertaining person on the internet. On the ice, he’s a nice role player for the Islanders.
In all likelihood, Mayfield will be the Isles seventh or eighth defenseman. He serves his role nicely in the limited action he sees. He also likes to drop the gloves occasionally with his six-foot-four 209 pound frame.
Today, he took to Twitter to live document his hair donation. In case you missed it you will be able to check out the videos below:
I have to say Scott looks pretty good with the short haired look, I think we’ll get used to it in no time.
Honestly, athletes get a poor wrap sometimes. Negative stories get far too much attention and all the good charity work that is done gets overlooked because a small fraction of the athletes act out.
The Islanders, in particular, do great charity work. Anders Lee had his Kan Jam tournament for charity, Josh Ho-Sang is going to raffle off his custom skates for charity. These are just the ones that I can think of off the top of my head.
The main point here is the good stuff doesn’t get the recognition that it deserves. So kudos to Scott for doing something awesome.
