Players all around the NHL are wearing mustaches this month as they partake in Movember, an initiative in which men wear mustaches to raise awareness and money for men’s health issues. Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo is joining the effort, but he’s doing so in a little different way.
While Luongo isn’t growing a mustache of his own, the Canucks netminder is going to wear a mask that has a mustache on it. He says he’ll wear the mustachioed mask for some games this month, and when the month is done, the mask will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Movember clause.
The mask features Johnny Canuck and his signature toque sporting the mustache, which is located just below Luongo’s cage.
See him show off his new mask in the video below.

Even the pros are getting into no-shave-November as Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo goalie has plans to wear this mask featuring Johnny Canuck with a rockin’ stache, NESN reports.
You can get in on the action too, by donating to the Next Impulse Sports Movember team. And yes, photo upodates of our mustaches will emerge in the near future.

Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo is celebrating the month of November in a special way. After the October’ breast cancer campaign, November is a month for men (and some unfortunate women). November has been dubbed “Movember” where guys grow mustaches in support of charity for men’s health issues.
Luongo won’t be sporting a mustache on his face...
Riding the bus
On Monday, the Vancouver Canucks announced that oft-injured winger David Booth would be sent to their AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets.
While it isn’t a permanent vacation for the overpaid and under-performing winger, one has to wonder if this is really about conditioning, or rather message from the coaching staff and management to David Booth.
The Rise of Mike Santorelli
One of the earliest bright spots of the John Tortorella era to date has been the success of Mike Santorelli. The forward that was at one point seemingly destined for Utica – due mostly to his two-way contract – is now the staple of Vancouver‘s second line and a key cog in the functions of this hockey club as a whole.
What has most likely endeared...

During the Pavel Bure jersey retirement on Saturday, a smattering of boos was reserved for Canucks’ general manager Mike Gillis (most had the good sense not to boo, but the booing was noticeable). Booing the most successful general manager in Canucks history (while giving a standing ovation to a much less successful former general manager, Pat Quinn...

The Vancouver Canucks take on the Sharks for the third time this season tonight at the SAP Center in San Jose. The Sharks have lost three straight heading into tonight’s action but have dominated the Canucks so far this season.
With the odds stacked against the visitors, below are five keys to tonight’s...
The Vancouver Canucks played a perfectly reasonable road game against the Coyotes on Nov. 5 – it was slow, boring and mostly safe.
It’s hard to assess blame in a 3-2 shootout loss on the road but the game came down to a few minor errors.
Despite the loss, there were quite a few positive to come from the trip the desert. Ryan Kesler scored one of the nicest...
Dan Hamhuis won the lottery. But it’s the Vancouver Canucks’ power play that needs to cash in.
With a rare man-advantage goal in Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the Phoenix Coyotes, the Canucks will stick for now with coach John Tortorella’s new power-play formation. It looks a lot like one of old coach Alain Vigneault’s power-play formations: four forwards and a lone defenceman...
I stumbled upon this video series again from a Vancouver guy (making fun and) trying to be a Bruins fan during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final. “Comedian” Andrew Barber and Canucks supporter plays “Boston Greg” who is a die hahd Bruins fan.
His attempt at Boston accent is SO BAD it’s hilarious. So let’s re-live the demise of the Vancouver Canucks from the perspective of a...
Rivalry? Says who?
It’s not a rivalry until the other teams goon rips off a jersey, shreds an under shirt and a little bit of hair is pulled. That’s right, for those of you who missed the obvious reference; it was a game in Chicago in 2009 that really started the Canucks and Blackhawks rivalry.
4 years later and not quite the playoff history the Canucks and Blackhawks have,...
John Tortorella looked like a New York City traffic cop Wednesday.
Standing at centre ice while waving his hands and then pointing in different directions with his stick, the vocal Vancouver Canucks coach was giving a new-look power play some new practice options.
With Alex Burrows joining the first unit with Ryan Kesler, Henrik and Daniel Sedin while Dan Hamhuis manned the point...
Tuesday November 5 Phoenix Coyotes 3 - Vancouver Canucks 2 (S/O)
The word "highlights" might be a bit of a stretch, but here's a recap of last night's Canucks game against Phoenix:
At first, it looked like Vancouver was going to badly fail its first test of the week against the Pacific Division. The Coyotes opened the scoring at 1:15, on their first shot...
The Coyotes extended their win streak to 5 games with a shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks. It took 6 shooters to decide who would take home the skills competition and in those situations you really feel for the goalies. Not as much as you feel for football goalies, but it's a similar principle, you need to remain perfect or hope your opponent messes up just to get a measly...
