The tradition of the playoff beard is alive and well, from the guys skating in the 2013 NHL playoffs all the way down to the most minor of leagues across North America and Europe.
If I went down to watch a Cincinnati Cyclones game at U.S. Bank Arena, I'd see three rounds worth of playoff beards. Within the next week or so, players in the NHL will start showing off the beginnings of what they hope to be monstrous manscapes.
Just like anything else in life, there are good playoff beards and then there are great ones. Here are 10 of the best from the last decade, in no particular order. Ranking these beards and making one of them No. 10 just doesn't seem fair.
