Movember: The Definitive Rankings

by Thomas Willis / Nashville Predators

Several Nashville Predators traditionally sport a mustache during the month of November in support of Movember and raising awareness for men's health issues. This year has been no different.

Of course, growing a lip sweater wouldn't be much fun without some friendly competition. With the crown jewel of all mustaches right here within the Predators organization - Brent Peterson's iconic stache itself - a ranking system was all together too easy. Therefore, we unveil our Top Three Preds mustaches ranked by their worthiness in comparison to Petey's mustache, which is of course the item of facial hair pictured in most Canadian dictionaries.

Without further ado, the definitive rankings:

Ryan Ellis — 4.5 Petey's

It's hard to ask for much more from Ryan Ellis' stache. The Preds d-man displays strong facial hair thickness, while also the confidence to pull off a unique, handlebar look. The lack of length or braids, however, costs him the final half Petey.

Carter Hutton — 3.5 Petey's

To look upon Carter Hutton's facial hair is to see the definition of balance and sophistication. The Nashville netminder brings a classic yet regal like look to his lip sweater with a mustache worthy of at least 3.5 Petey's.

Pekka Rinne — 3.0 Petey's

Pekka Rinne makes it two Preds goaltenders in the Top Three. The Finn presents a well-groomed mustache, but loses points for a distracting soul patch underneath his bottom lip. It's always the right idea to have a stache and a stache alone.
