Brandon Prust is among those Rangers participating in the Beard-A-Thon fundraiser for the Garden of Dreams

Last year, New York Rangers center Brandon Dubinsky famously grew a ’70s-style porn mustache as the Broadway Blueshirts fought for a playoff spot. This year, as the Rangers finished atop the Eastern Conference and prepare to face off against the Ottawa Senators in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, fans are encouraged to grow some facial hair of their own for the team’s first-ever Beard-A-Thon. To participate, stop shaving and register online, accumulating pledges from friends, relatives, and everyone else you know, with proceeds benefiting the Garden of Dreams Foundation. The leading fundraiser will win four tickets to next year’s home opener and get their picture taken with Adam Graves at center ice. If you can’t grow a beard of your own, you can contribute to others’ shagginess, including such current players as Steve Eminger, Mike Rupp, Michael Del Zotto, John Mitchell, Carl Hagelin, Brandon Prust, and Artem Anisimov or such former stars as Vic Hadfield, Ron Duguay, Dave Maloney, and Graves.
