Monday I said, “Can we get an off-season photo of Steven Stamkos?” If he started wearing a ponytail for the summer, I want get my crying out of the way before workout videos start to pop up.
This video of Steven accepting an award for being Steven-tastic not only includes him talking on a child’s plastic telephone and being chased around a Christmas tree by a toddler in a pillow fight, but also HE CUT HIS HAIR.
YAAAYY…WAIT. I’m not sure we’re going on by his ear – can someone just push his hair back there? With the super-high collar, this look is a little too “nervous religious-affiliated high school graduation” for me. Is it too short? Too vanilla?

There’s a negative-seven percent chance he’ll have any kind of tan, so pack your sunglasses.
This is what happens in summer, y’all: style consultations and gratuitous cross-sports graphics.
