Preview/Lines #21: Burroughs Is Sharks’ Movember Mustache Leader

For athletes, even a charitable cause like Movember is something to compete about.

“You should ask him if he’s trying,” Kyle Burroughs chirped, behind his own cop-worthy mustache, about fellow Movember (and far less bushy) participant Matt Benning.

This year in the San Jose Sharks room, Burroughs, Benning, and Nico Sturm are the players participating in Movember, a few less than last year.

Who’s Got Best Sharks’ Movember Mustache?

Sharks strength and conditioning coach Brian Ganz, who’s got an impressive ‘stache himself, also has his own Movember fundraising page.

Movember is an organization that targets men’s health globally, especially to combat illnesses that disproportionately affect men like mental health issues and testicular and prostate cancer. To raise awareness, in the month of November, men grow mustaches for the entirety of the month.

“He’s got a very impressive one,” Sturm, sporting a thin, blond mustache, had to admit about Burroughs’s all-weather, all-season bush. “It’s a lifestyle choice.”

Burroughs joked, of fiancée Hayley Peters, “I don’t know if she approves, but she’s used to it by now.”

Sturm can’t say the same about fiancée Taylor Turnquist.

“She can’t stand it,” he laughed. “December 1st, it’s gone.”

That’s still a week away, so you’ve got plenty of time to donate to a good cause!

San Jose Sharks (3-15-2)

Kaapo Kahkonen will draw the start.

Filip Zadina didn’t finish yesterday’s game because of an upper-body injury, and is out day-to-day. Kevin Labanc will come back in.

We’ll get the exact line-up during warm-ups, but considering Quinn and the Sharks were happy with their performance yesterday, a 3-2 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens, it should be fairly similar to this:

Vancouver Canucks (14-6-1)

This is how the Canucks lined up yesterday against the Seattle Kraken, a 5-1 victory.

Thatcher Demko went, so expect Casey DeSmith tonight.
