Paul Bissonnette gets new haircut after losing bet on Stanley Cup Playoffs

Former Arizona Coyotes player and current analyst Paul Bissonnette has always had a style and swag of his own.

But prior to Game 3 of the Western Conference Final between the Colorado Avalanche and Edmonton Oilers in Alberta, Canada, on Saturday, Bissonnette took that to a whole new level.

The Spittin’ Chiclets Podcast co-host had to shave just the top of his head as a result of losing a bet to another co-host in Ryan Whitney.

Bissonnette bet all the way back in November that the Calgary Flames would make it further in the Stanley Cup Playoffs than the Oilers, with Whitney having to pierce his left ear and rock a Barry Bonds-style cross earring for a month as punishment.

But unfortunately for the newly-groomed Bissonnette, the Oilers defeated the Flames 4-1 in the second round of the Standley Cup Playoffs.

And of course, like any other humiliating bet, the ridicule from the Twitterverse chimed in:

Even former Coyotes head coach Rick Tocchet got in on the fun. After all, he has to work with him on the set of NHL on TNT.
