Lately, a good number of fans in Canuckland are not very happy residents. With the loss of some popular players and other teams in Vancouver’s division getting better on paper, there is malcontent amongst the fans. So here at Canucks Corner, we thought we’d rather keep it light and talk about some great mustaches in Canucks’ history. So let’s have a little fun, forget the angst felt towards Canucks management and appreciate some good ‘stache game.
Jamie Huscroft: Huscroft was on the “dark days” Canucks of the late 90s and early 2000’s. Two things stood out on his face, his blue eyes and his upper lip caterpillar.
Jack McIlhargey: Known to many modern day Canucks fans as an assistant coach to Marc Crawford, Jack Mac was known for being a hard nosed guy on the ice, a rocking mullet and that ‘stache. To this day, he still rocks the Mo’ with his silver locks.
Harold Snepsts: No helmet, no problem! Snepstsy has the all powerfull “cop ‘stache” to save him on the ice. When you see Harold these days, he’s clean-shaven, but he will always be remembered looking like this.
Dave Babych: Probably my favourite guy to wear 44 on the Canucks and a rocking mo during his time with Vancouver. Although Babs was a main guy in the 80s and 90s for the Canucks, his moustache is a tribute to the 1970’s style of some male porn stars. These days, Dave wears a goatee.
John Garrett: The stunt double ‘stache of Cheech Marin, Garrett still rocks one today, and sometimes gets ketchup on it during broadcasts, as we have all been told by Cheech himself.
Honorable mention Roberto Luongo: He doesn’t always wear a moustache, but it seems that a guy like Roberto Luongo would probably have his 5 o’clock shadow show up at noon. Below is a “soul ‘stache” gif of our former goaltender.
Now wasn’t that better than bitching about “Lindening”?
