Hopefully by now, you’ve heard about our little Canucks Playoff Beard Challenge. Simply supporting the team by showing off your best looking playoff beard can get you a shot at winning a $25 gift card to the Hurricane Grill.
But also, we here at Canucks Hockey Blog wanted to celebrate the start of this long playoff run with a kick-off contest so we reached out to our friends from the Vancouver Canucks organization and discovered they had a team-signed Canucks stick available for us to give away to one lucky CHB reader. To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to get in on this stick, we thought we’d put a slightly-different spin on the playoff beard challenge – that is, we want to encourage everyone to rock one Johnny Canuck style.
Now, you might be thinking that it will be tough to rock a beard and this is true as a good quality beard takes time. But we have that one covered for you too: you can rock a real beard, a Canucks playoff beard available from the Team Store (retail: $9.99), or heck, if you want to save yourself some cash and have good cut and paste skills, black construction paper works just as well.
So how do you enter?
First, take a picture of yourself rocking the beard (real or fake) in a Johnny Canuck pose, and then:
- Upload the picture to our Flickr group. (1 entry)
- Link the photo in the comments section of this post. (1 entry)
For a bonus entry, tweet the following message:

The contest will officially close at 11:59am PST on April 19th. Shortly after that, we’ll draw a winner for the Canucks team-signed stick.
We’ve decided to extend this contest. You now have until 11:59 PM PST on Tuesday, April 26th to get in your entries. We’ll announce the winner on the morning of April 27th.
