Things get hairy in scrap between Nazem Kadri and Joe Thornton

Things get hairy in scrap between Nazem Kadri and Joe Thornton

But he got a bit of an unexpected trim during a fight on Thursday night.

Two seconds into the Maple Leafs' 3-2 shootout win over the Sharks, a fight broke out between Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri and Sharks' Joe Thornton.

Things got chippy between the Sharks and Maple Leafs in Toronto on Thursday, and then they turned hairy.

After the two players fell to the ice and were broken up by the linesmen, Kadri could be seen dropping a huge chunk of Thornton's beard on the ice. "I have no idea how that happened". I didn't mean to grab him there. "I felt like I just grabbed him in the middle of his jersey and just came down with a handful of his hair".

While most NHL players grow their beards during playoff season, as is hockey tradition, Thornton has been sporting his facial hair since setting it free during the 2015-16 season.

Sharks backup goalie Aaron Dell used his glove to transport the hair back to the team's bench, a sight that didn't seem to faze any of his teammates. The 38-year-old veteran has eight goals and 19 assists this season, leading the Sharks in points.
