Anaheim Ducks Center Adam Henrique is no rookie when it comes to growing beards, and it shows! The Ducks player is growing the signature “playoff beard” while hockey is on pause due to the coronavirius pandemic.
In a tweet by NHL.com writer Tom Gulitti, Henrique shows off the long beard that he has been growing since March 12.
Other NHL players, like defenseman Andy Greene of the New York Islanders, are also growing out the beards during what should've been title-winning time.
Many figures across all sports have been growing out their “quarantine beards,” as they now have a chance to grow 'em out while at home. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, UNC basketball coach Roy Williams, and many more have taken to social media to show off their facial hair.
These NHL players should be pros at growing their beards, since they are already used to sporting the look around playoff time anyways. I think Henrique shows that that this idea checks out.
While this is nice to see, I hope that these beards will transform from “quarantine beards” to “playoff beards,” and the NHL returns with some exciting playoff hockey in store.
