A few Vegas Golden Knights players will participate in “Movember” by growing their facial hair during the month of November to create awareness for men’s health initiatives.

Ryan Carpenter, William Carrier, Nick Holden, Brad Hunt, Jon Merrill, Colin Miller, Malcolm Subban, Shea Theodore, and Alex Tuch are the players participating, according to the team. 

A Golden Knights spokesperson said the funds raised will benefit the Movember Foundation, the only global charity focused solely on providing support for men’s health, with the money going toward supporting men’s health programs in the key areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.

Fans can also join in on “Movember” by donating here or sharing their own pictures while supporting the Knights on social media by using #VGKMO.
