There's no beard quite like a playoff beard, and the NHL sees some spectacular efforts in the facial hair department during the postseason. Some players, of course, maintain a healthy amount of facial hair throughout the regular season as well. 

The folks over at created some animated GIFs that capture the transformations of NHL players from clean-shaven to fully bearded. Here are 10 of best evolutions of bristly glory.
