SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- Usually Andrew Brunette is scoring the big goal, but this week he's scoring the big interviews.

Bruno goes from Minnesota Wild winger, to sports reporter getting updates on his teammates Movember mustaches.

As Brunette will tell you, the Wild mustaches come in all shapes and styles.

On November 26th, during the Wild's game against Nashville, we are attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the most real mustaches in one place.

This idea originated from Wild defense man Nick Schultz's determination to help a family friend who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009.

After receiving the bad news about his friend, Schultz was turned on to "Movember," a non-profit organization that promotes men's health, particularly in November. The organization, started in 2004 by four Aussies at a bar, requires it's supporters to grow mustaches during November. It serves as the ultimate conversation starter to talk about mens health. Since "Movember" started, the organization has raised over 100 million dollars for cancer research.

On November 1, 2009 Schultz started growing his mustache on November 1st. Next thing he knew, his Wild teammates were growing mustaches as well to support Schultz and mens health.

 

 

This Movember, Nick and his Wild teammates need the fans to join in and grow mustaches as well in time for the November 26th game.

Fans who grow mustaches will be apart of the World Record, promote men's health, and get to come on the ice following the game to take a group picture with members of the Wild.
