Wild-Oilers MoGro Faceoff: EuroMo Division

by Staff Writer / Minnesota Wild


The Minnesota Wild and Edmonton Oilers are going at it on the ice for the third time already this season. Thus far, the Wild owns two victories on the ice, and let's be honest, they're dominating in the mustache department as well.

Having won five games in a row, the Wild will look to keep the on-ice momentum going against the Oilers Friday afternoon. But today, it's up to Mikko Koivu to keep the MOmentum going in Round 3 of 5 of the Wild vs. Oilers MoGro Faceoff.

The photos of each combatant will be posted on Facebook, and fans are encouraged to comment on which player owns the best 'stache. The ultimate method of judging the winner is to see which team can raise the most Movember donations from now until the end of the month.

The first pairing on Monday featured the Mo Masters Division with Cal Clutterbuck going up against Darcy Hordichuk. Round 2 focused on the young guys as Jared Spurgeon faced off with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the MoKids Division. In today's MoGro Faceoff, it will be the battle for the best EuroMo. Finland's Mikko Koivu will square off against Sweden's Anton Lander.

Sweden is a nice country and all, but Finland is practically the Minnesota of Europe. So do your duty and donate some cash for a good cause on Mikko's Movember page right here.
