CLAYTON, Mo. —  Several Blues hockey players see the same stylist to cut their hair.  As soon as the team landed back in St. Louis Tuesday night, six players went straight to see Kate Clark at Kink Hair in Clayton.

“I’ve worked 30 hours in the last two days,” said  Kate Clark.

Kate specifically styles and cleans up Blues players: Jordan Binnington, Vince Dunn, Brayden Scheen, Joel Edmundson, Sammy Blais, Zach Sanford, and Robert Thomas.

“They’re wonderful. Robert Thomas is a sweet young man, he’s so respectful. They really all are.” said Kate Clark.

So who’s the funniest? “Sammy Blais. He’s hilarious.

Kate Clark says Brayden Scheen is the most talkative and his mom was a hairstylist. She says, “He’s very intelligent, reserved. Just a kind person.”

Who is the quietest? “Jordan. (laughs) if you can imagine that.”

Clark says she recognized Dunn at a barbeque four years ago when he was in town for a rookie camp. She gave him her card and offered a cut.

“He put that card in his wallet for two years. Then called a few years ago get in and get a cut. Since then they have been filtering in and I’m grateful,” said Kate Clark.

The players and wives and girlfriends tell Kate they approve of the styles. And as you might expect Kate is a huge fan and the Blues and their families

“I love going to games. I’m lucky to get tipped with tickets, so I’m grateful,” said Kate Clark.

Most of the players message me for a cut within hours of needing one. Dunn always gives weeks of notice, which always helps.

“The gentleman are respectful and grateful for the loyalty of the St. Louis fans,” said Kate Clark. “Our blues, everyone should know how wonderful the young men are and how grateful they are for our support.”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
