With Movember in full swing, mustaches are sprouting up on the faces of hundreds of thousands men across the globe. In 2011 alone, 854,000 “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas” joined forces and, with help from supportive family and friends, $126 million was raised. NHL players and staff from all 30 teams are active participants in the month-long charity event. Across the league every year players and staff stow their razors to help raise money for the U.S. partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.
Hockey players are notorious for their mustaches, from Lanny McDonald’s fury red duster in the 1980s to George Parros’s modern thick-face caterpillar to Hockey Hall-of-Famer and Caps alumnus Rod Langway, players are no strangers to facial hair. Langway sported infamous handlebars throughout his career but has also donned several mustache variations throughout his playing career and his time as an active alumnus. This year he will let his ‘stache enter into unchartered territories in order to raise awareness and money for men’s health. Langway is joined by several Caps staff and Mo Bros and Mo Sistas representing the NHL for the sake of this cause. Be sure to check out the Caps’ Movember page to join Rod Langway and the team this Movember!
