Shark Life: Bye Bye Beard

by Casey Krygier /

T'was two nights before the Home Opener, when all through Burnzie's house, 
The Sharks team got together, which caused a big Twitter rouse.

Joe Thornton did the unthinkable. He shaved his beard... with the help of his teammates who shared the historic moment on Twitter for all to witness.

Tweet from @Burnzie88: End of an era ... start of something special! Lets get it going again 💪

Tweet from @jpav8: It���s gone!!!

Tweet from @Vlasic44: Thats the guy i was introduced to 12 years ago 😀👍

Tweet from @BDillon04: She gown!!!!!!! #Legend

Tweet from @sorensenmarcus: What a good looking guy 🤩

The beard had a good run from 2015 to 2018, but what's in store next? Evander Kane is excited for the future.

Tweet from @evanderkane_9: Younger, faster, stronger, lighter! What a start to the season 🔥

But didn't Jumbo know that photoshop is a quicker shave?

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: Welp.

Here's to an end of an era and the start of something special.
