FYI: Hartnell and Voracek have black beards now

Apr 17, 2014, 2:08 PM EDT

From our friends at CSN

Jakub Voracek dyed his beard black earlier this week, and Wednesday night, Scott Hartnell decided to join him.

“He did it yesterday,” Hartnell said. “I couldn’t let him do it alone. After dinner last night, I went to the drugstore and got Just For Men. I don’t know if it will catch on with the team, but I couldn’t let him go alone doing it.”

Should we expect their linemate, Flyers captain Claude Giroux, to join their ranks?

“I haven’t decided yet, but right now it’s a no,” he said. “it’s a tough look.”

CSN Philly’s Sarah Baicker was able to snap a couple shots of Hartnell and Voracek ahead of tonight’s game with the Rangers.


Safe to say they’re not in Brian Wilson territory yet…

…but with a deep playoff run, maybe they can approach it.

PS — Voracek’s needs more dye I think.

    didn’t Jagr do this last year? I seem to remember SOMEBODY doing it… can’t entirely remember who.

    • sjsblitz - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:14 PM

      I loved the wolverine look on Jagr last season. I wanted to hear him say “Hey Bub” in an interview so badly

        Anything to distract the mouth-breathing fans of Philadelphia from the specter of 1975.

        Because 1975 was a long time ago.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:58 PM

        lol ya that’s exactly who it was.

        a (hilarious) theory on the Bruins downfall last year.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:59 PM

        holy sh** everybody. bobhpine hasn’t accidentally fallen off something and died yet. IT’S A PLAYOFFS MIRACLE!

    I fully endorse this. The less ginger beards the better. They need to get Couterier to do this as well.

    • esracerx46 - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:22 PM

      Forgot about Couturier. Why so many gingers on the flyers? Is it the orange sweaters?

      • ibieiniid - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:36 PM

        I was afraid we had another one in Cal Heeter. but i think he’s just a daywalker.

      Just stirring the pot a little:

  3. esracerx46 - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:19 PM

    Damn Ginger’s. Most of em don’t hesitate to try and shed it, yet they seem reluctant.

  4. nashernation - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:21 PM

    Changing the beard colors aren’t changing the fact that the Blue Shirts are laying the smack down at the garden tonight. FUPHILLY!!!

  5. toiletclown - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:27 PM

    This is all they will be talking about in a week anyways when the gingers are all golfing.

  6. elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:35 PM

    The flyers are the coolest team on ice

    • mangoman1966 - Apr 17, 2014 at 6:08 PM

      Cant hide ugly no matter hard you try.

      • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM

        You should know your old lady is abysmal !

  7. patthehockeyfan - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:36 PM

    Just For Men? Or, Miss Clairol?

  8. pitpenguinsrulez - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:36 PM

    As much as I hate Scott Hartnell to death I can help but admit that the guy seems like able off ice.

    • ibieiniid - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      it’s ballsy to admit that.

      not sure if that link will work, but that’s his children’s book for charity. it’s funny, how much we hate some players, they’re actually great people doing great work off the ice as well too.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:40 PM

        “as well too”….. about as redundant as it gets.

      • pitpenguinsrulez - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:52 PM

        Yeah I’ve heard of the Hartnelldown thing. That’s pretty neat that he does that for kids.

      • elmerbrownelmerbrown - Apr 17, 2014 at 5:15 PM

        Thats pretty funny “its ballsy to admit that ” look we all know the real deal here we want Flyers Penguins round 2

      • Hard to BeLeaf - Apr 17, 2014 at 5:49 PM

        Hartnell’s the best.

    • flyerspsu - Apr 17, 2014 at 3:51 PM

      ill be the 1st to admit Hartnell can be a prick and dirty on the ice, not sure if its b/c hes just insanely competitive, but off the ice hes about as likeable as you can be, definitely one of the best characters in the league

  9. biffnasty - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:49 PM

    Changing the color of their ginger beards does not change the fact that they have NO soul

  10. 7mantel - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:52 PM

    Will the poor bastards who can’t grow a beard glue fake facial hair on ?

    • tved12 - Apr 17, 2014 at 4:00 PM

      I’ve tried it, shaved all the hair off my a** but it wouldn’t stick…

    • Hard to BeLeaf - Apr 17, 2014 at 5:54 PM

      would be hilarious to keep making the beards more extravagant as they go farther in the playoffs.

      By the finals they all look like Gimli from Lord of the Rings.

  11. sjsharks66 - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:54 PM

    Anyone want to get in on some betting action? $10 Pierre brings up their beards like….5 times. Each time more excited then the last.

    • patthehockeyfan - Apr 17, 2014 at 2:56 PM

      lol!! No bet.

    • thesportsjudge - Apr 17, 2014 at 3:07 PM

      Make it a drinking game.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 17, 2014 at 3:13 PM

        call it Black Beer’ds.

    • patthehockeyfan - Apr 17, 2014 at 3:43 PM

      Wouldn’t it be a hoot when, if (when) they sweat, the dye runs? Pierre would wet himself.

      • antmel30 - Apr 17, 2014 at 4:42 PM

        Pittpensrules I was actually out to dinner with hartnell once. He sat next to my wife and I. He could not have been more humble and down to earth. He was drinking with us and having god time. All around good dude. I know he differs when he hits the ice

  12. purpleguy - Apr 17, 2014 at 4:57 PM

    Hartnell really shouldn’t be doing anything special to draw attention to that mug.

  13. Hockeyfan - Apr 17, 2014 at 5:08 PM

    All the gingers look like Bozo the clown esp flying out the sides of their helmets. Trolls. Black beards don’t make up for that.

  14. statsdolie - Apr 17, 2014 at 6:01 PM

    They say the point of it is so their beards will be orange and black later in the playoffs

  15. mangoman1966 - Apr 17, 2014 at 9:11 PM

    Hey Elmer. This I’d your dad.

  16. mangoman1966 - Apr 17, 2014 at 9:14 PM

    Is your dad elmer. Since your a flyer fan you wouldn’t know the difference.

  17. mangoman1966 - Apr 17, 2014 at 9:17 PM
