Ducks Players to Grow Moustaches for \'Movember\'

The Anaheim Ducks announced today that in an effort to raise funds and awareness for cancers affecting men, 13 players on the club’s roster will grow moustaches in honor of “Movember.” Ducks right wing George Parros, who has gained notoriety for his signature ‘stache during his tenure in the NHL, is leading the charge during the 30-day moustache-growing movement in November. Parros will “start from scratch” by shaving and re-growing his moustache along with his 12 participating teammates.

“My teammates and I are excited to join this great cause,” said Parros. “It’s a fun way to bring awareness to cancers affecting men. I look forward to seeing what kind of ‘staches our team can produce.”

Ducks teammates participating in Movember with Parros include: Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Sheldon Brookbank, Curtis McElhinney, Ryan Carter, Kyle Chipchura, Danny Syvret, Cam Fowler, Troy Bodie, Todd Marchant, Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu

In addition, Parros will serve as the presiding judge for a moustache-growing contest being hosted by Gino Reda of “That’s Hockey,” a popular daily hockey magazine show aired on Canadian sports network, TSN. In support of “Movember,” Reda will grow a moustache of his own to compete with other NHL players to see who can grow the best ‘stache in a contest ultimately decided by Parros. George will serve as a guest on “That’s Hockey” multiple times throughout November.

This is not the first time Parros has used his moustache for a good cause. Parros also uses his popular moustache as the namesake of ‘Stache Gear, his own apparel line which raises funds for the Childhood Leukemia Foundation and Teammates for Kids. All items in his apparel line include his moustache as the logo. All items from the apparel line retail exclusively in the Ducks Team Store.

About “Movember”
Movember is an annual charity event during the month of November where men grow a moustache while raising funds and awareness for men’s health issues. The moustache is our ribbon, it’s the vehicle by which we raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, our commitment is to grow a moustache and change the face of men’s health.

Men are encouraged to register at www.movember.com and start with a clean-shaven face. For more details on the Anaheim Ducks participation and ways to contribute to “Movember”, please visit the Ducks MoSpace page.
