    Grant Fuhr rocked the 'stache through most of his career from Junior on, and then added the beard often in the 90s:

    Also here in Sweden we had a guy who was a back-up/occasional starter for Södertälje SK in the 90s/00s, Magnus Lindquist. He was pretty much exclusively known for his thick beard.

    I liked the 2004 finals, because the colour of both Khabibulin and Kiprusoff's beards matched their uniforms.

    The correct answer is: itchy and sucks.

    Bernie Parent sported a beard towards the end of his career

    I remember, back in the era when players weren't nearly so hairy, a playoff final. Bernie Parent is at the bench on a break, and removes his goalie mask to reveal a scant beard. The broadcaster says that he has a hunting trip up north when the series is over, so it certainly was unusual.

    Once read of Stan Mikita skating in the first practice of the year with an offseason beard. He said he had a razor in his locker and would shave once the owner ordered him to do so.

    As @Hagstrom illustrated above, Braden Holtby had more hair in his neck beard during last season's run-up to The Cup than Sidney Crosby likely has on his entire body ... BEFORE Crosby shaves it every morning ... :rolleyes:
