PENTICTON, BC. — Just like the month of October is dedicated to breast cancer, November in the NHL is known for prostate cancer awareness. This campaign, better known as “Movember”, consists of men growing a moustache to raise awareness for this deadly disease. Many players in the league have jumped on board including members of the Montreal Canadiens.
In the spirit of good-natured fun, allow me to show you what the Habs’ players could look like by the end of the month.
And here’s a description for some of the most prominent players:
Max Pacioretty – Patches chose the “Rollie Fingers” stache because with his five goals and five assists in 13 games, he has helped to ‘save’ Jacques Martin’s job for now.
Michael Cammalleri and Chris Campoli – It looks like they have invested in the restaurant business are ready to serve you the best Pizza and Spaghetti in town!
Erik Cole – He was awarded the Charlie Chaplin moustache for his wobbly debuts with the Canadiens, and because of his history with the Canes.
Hal Gill – Big Hal looks like he’s ready to put on the leather chaps and matching hat!
Scott Gomez – If Scotty can’t find his groove on the ice soon, this new look might help him land a part with Antonio Banderas in a future Zorro movie.
Josh Gorges and Andrei Markov – Since both shared a similar knee injury, they decided to also go for a similar look. The difference is that Gorges is not as tensed.
Tomas Plekanec – Dropping the turtleneck for the pirate look, as he robs the limelight from his teammate Gomez.
Jaroslav Spacek – It’s a challenge to make Spacek look tougher but this look might do the trick.
P.K. Subban – Doesn’t he look like Isaac Washington, the bartender in the series The Love Boat, played by actor Ted Lange? Jacques Martin sure feels like he needs a drink when watching Subban play.
Carey Price – The goalie who will do anything to stop the puck carries the same looks whether he’s right side up or upside down! That would also explain the low-five.
Andrei Kostitsyn – Me play for contract and moustache make me stronger, like Parros.
Ryan White – Thinks that the Pirates of the Caribbean look will make him even more intimidating.

Having moved to beautiful British Columbia in 1992, he started writing mostly in French to keep up his grammar, until non-bilingual BC friends pushed him into starting his own English Blog. His wife will say that he can be stubborn, but she will be the first to recognise that he has great sense of humour. He is always happy to share with you readers his point of views on different topics, and while it is expected that people won’t always agree, respect of opinions and of others is his mission statement.
