Wild Mo Bros Power Rankings — Week 2

by Mike Doyle / Minnesota Wild

Well, it’s Movember again and the Wild Mo Bros are back at it, growing their soup strainers for men’s health. Check out the Wild's Movember page, presented by Jack Link's Beef Jerky, to join the team. You can also see all the cookie dusters at the team's photo gallery. Since the players are doing their part, is doing its part and trying to determine the best Wild moustache. Now in Week 2, team’s moustaches are to upper lips what great mousic is to the ears:

George Michael Division

The Division for scruffy Mos.

Nate Prosser — The blueliner likes to play rough just like his facial hair and is known to Wham! opponents into the boards. His Movember scruff is like a Careless Whisper against his face.

ZZ Top Division

The Division for bearded blues rockers.

Jason Zucker — The band might be known for double entendre, but there is no hidden meaning behind Zucker’s beard…only his face. Clean sweater, new skates, every Wild fan’s crazy ‘bout a sharp Mo’d man.

Prince Division

Yeah, we had the Prince Rogers Nelson Division last year, but come on, what’s a musical Wild Mo PWR without the Purple One?

Jordan Schroeder — Prince and Schroeder have a lot in common: both are Minnesota natives; both are well under 6-foot; both have played in front of sold-out crowds at Xcel Energy Center; and both love Jacks Links Beef Jerky and pancakes for breakfast after a game. Okay, so I made that last one up, but they both have a talent for growing fantastic facial hair.

Nino Niederreiter — The forward has a wrist shot that would make doves cry. Yesterday, the 22-year-old was partying like it was 1999, as he netted his first-career hat trick. He then proceeded to laugh in the Purple Rain (of hats).

Matt Dumba — The defenseman ranked second in the Prince Rogers Nelson Division last season. But he’s stepped up his Mo game this year, shooting up the charts like Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum. The blueliner’s cookie duster would die 4 U and the former baby face is quickly turning into a ‘stache star.

Lemmy Division

This Division puts the Mo in Motörhead.

Justin Fontaine — The Mo Bros Team Captain is the Ace of ‘Staches. Who’d win in a wrestling match, Fontaine’s facial hair or Heavy Metal? Trick question, hair head, his trucker moustache is Heavy Metal (Yes, that’s an Airheads reference, but edited for language because this is a family PWR). He nailed this week's muzzy in one take.

Jimi Hendrix Division

He was known as a pioneer and a Guitar God, but he also rocked a divine moustache.

Ryan Carter — If the White Bear Lake’s duster were a guitar solo, it would be Hendrix’s lead on All Along the Watchtower: A dreamlike delve that pierces the subconscious, while grooming a groove that speaks to the window of the upper lip. Carter’s muzz has mystical powers that equal Hendrix’s Stratocaster. Think I’m full of moustache wax? Check out his goal against Buffalo yesterday.
