Usually great beards are restricted to North American-born players, but Henrik Zetterberg has certainly bucked that trend. The Detroit Red Wings' Swedish star has had the opportunity to grow his five-o-clock shadow in recent years, especially during back-to-back trips to the Stanley Cup final in 2008 and 2009. With a second-place seed all but wrapped up for the Wings in the Western Conference, Zetterberg's look will be primed for another long post-season run.
