Every year during the month of November, players around the league grow out their mustaches to celebrate the aptly-named Movember and raise awareness of men's health issues.
Being that the San Jose Sharks are not ones to shy away from facial hair, a number of the team decided to join forces with Pizza Factory and grow out their mustaches to raise money. Each week, sjsharks.com will rank how good the mustaches look through our completely arbitrary Movember rules.
Donate to the player (or mascot) who you think rocks the best 'stache.
First up: week one.
7. Timo Meier
There might be a mustache here, if you squint your eyes and look sideways.

6. Dylan DeMelo
Pretty freshly shaven, though there is definitely a bit of a stache coming through. As the reigning Movember Power Rankings champ, there are high expectations for DeMelo.

5. Pizza Factory Mascot
Not much here yet, but there's definitely a solid stache in the works.

4. Chris Tierney
It's hard out here for blondes, especially when blondes grow facial hair. There's some semblance of a mustache, but does it really count as a mustache if it's the same length as the rest of the facial scruff?

3. Logan Couture
There is definitely a mustache on the upper lip, but it's not the most visible of 'staches. Solid start, though (even if he is going for - and we - quote "the mean look").

2. Brenden Dillon
Though it's obvious this mustache is in its infancy, it's still a solid stache for day 3 of the month. (Of course, it helps to have dark hair).

1. Ryan Carpenter
That's a suspiciously solid mustache for November 3, Ryan Carpenter. Are there shenanigans going on, or is this just dad power at work?
