NHL playoff beard or hipster?

NHL playoff beard or hipster?

0
he beard is a tradition like no other during the NHL playoffs. Chris Greenberg of  The Huffington Post recognized this and made a pretty funny post that compares those hockey beard growers to hipsters, another group of people who have grown some pretty great/gnarly beards.The comparison has some merit. For example, check out this beard from Swedish hockey player Emil Kaberg.

Now check out this random picture of a hipster.

The beards are identical. The difference between the two beards, at least from an outsiders perspective (my beard growing ability is limited), it seems hockey beards are grown out without care and are almost like a badge of pride (well, maybe not for Sidney Crosby), while hipster beards on the other hand are intentionally scraggly but are managed to look that way (with usually a lot of shaping wax included).

Anyways, here are the best beards from Greenberg’s post, can you figure out which is which? (Answers below)
