OTTAWA (CP) - Senators backup goalie Ray Emery got his hair dyed platinum blond.

"We had a day off (Tuesday), and I found myself sitting in a barber shop and tried something different," he told the Ottawa Citizen.

"When I first saw it, I thought it was kind of different, but now I like it."

No. 1 goalie Dominik Hasek didn't know what to say.

"If it helps him be a better goalie, maybe I'll think about," he joked. "When I first came in here to the dressing room, I turned my head around really fast and said, 'What is this?' but it's a good idea. I'm sure the fans will like it, too.

"It's OK if you are 20 or 22, and, when I was his age, I dyed my hair green for a few days."
