ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – There’s something about hockey that always comes back to hair.

But for the playoffs Wild fans are getting a clean start.

Tim Meyer has had a beard since 1979.

“I really don’t know what I look like without hair on my face,” he said.

He was one of the fans who stopped by Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday for the “playoff shave-off.”

Fans and players shave their beards, then let them grow for as long as the Wild is the playoffs.

Meyer’s sister said his new look will take some getting used to.

Participants could get before and after pictures of their shaves, in addition to earning “Blood Sweat and Beards” shirts.
