Panthers To Sport \'Staches for Movember
Playoff beards are legendary, but there's another type of facial hair that's become popular across the NHL: the Movember moustache.

Celebrated during the month of November, Movember is an annual, world-wide charity movement where men grow mo's to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Since the movement's began in Australia in 2003, Movember has become increasingly popular across the world, with more than 1.1 million participants raising $174 million dollars, to date.

The movement has caught on in locker rooms across the NHL, with more than 200 players and 18 teams participating last season. In addition to raising money and awareness for an important cause, the month-long campaign often helps build camaraderie and provides plenty of laughs as teammates compare each other's moustaches.

This season, Panthers players will become Mo Bros and refrain from the razor for a good cause. Multiple Cats will sport 'staches to show their support of the cause, including Matt Bradley, Keaton Ellerby, Erik Gudbranson, Dmitry Kulikov, Jacob Markstrom, Shawn Matthias, Jose Theodore, Kris Versteeg and Mike Weaver.

Moustache, mo, duster, 'stache - the terms are endless but the goal is simple: put an end to cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. In the U.S., Movember funds are donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Panthers fans are encouraged to help support the cause by visiting the Florida Panthers Movember page at mobro.co/floridapanthers and making a tax-deductible donation, or by joining the team as Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to help fundraise. Prizes will be awarded to the top five fans who join the Panthers Movember team as individual fundraisers and raise the most money.
