NAHL announces winners of Movember campaign

Press Release

The North American Hockey League (NAHL) Movember campaign was all about bringing back the moustache, having fun and doing it for a serious cause; men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.  The players in the NAHL started Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groomed, trimmed and waxed their way into the annals of fine moustachery.

It was a legendary month for the mo’s, and the NAHL is pleased to announce the winners of the NAHL’s Movember campaign.

In the team category, it was a two horse race at the end as the Odessa Jackalopes and the Johnstown Tomahawks were in a race to the finish to see which team could raise the most funds.  Congratulations go to the Odessa Jackalopes for raising the most funds and winning the NAHL’s Movember campaign.
Odessa was bolstered by the NAHL individual player winner, forward Pat Thompson.  Thompson, a 19-year-old from Hellertown, Pennsylvania, was able to generate almost a third of the total funds raised by the team.

For raising the most funds, the Odessa Jackalopes will receive a team prize package from Gongshow Gear. Thank you to all who supported the NAHL’s Movember campaign.  Here is wishing good luck to all the freshly shaven and clean faces of the NAHL players in December!
