As players and fans get in on the fun growing a duster, NHL goalies are doing their part to help raise awareness for men's health issues.
We brought you Jonas Hiller's(notes) fantastic Movember-inspired mask featuring the headshots of each of his Anaheim Ducks teammates sporting some hair on their upper lips and deemed it an instant classic. Now it's Boston Bruins netminder, and mustachioed man himself, Tim Thomas(notes) introducing his own mask to spread the word about Movember.
It's the little things like the mustache on the bear that increases the love for the mask. This gives us hope that the Bruins bear makes an ad sporting said mustache while denouncing the actions of a poorly behaved fan.
Lord Horatio Kitchener ordering you to get crackin' on some mustachin' is a nice touch, as well.
As part of the campaign, the Tim Thomas Foundation will be raffling off tickets to win the mask and receive it while meeting the Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe and Vezina Trophy winner after game in December. Proceeds of the raffle will benefit prostate cancer awareness and Thomas' foundation.
You can find more information on the raffle at In Goal.
