Some beards just looks like a big ball of scruff but others are pretty impressive. Either way, professional athletes pull them off the best. Since hockey playoffs are officially in action, it’s a good time to compare athletes’ beards from different sport.

There are epic beards in every professional sport. Sure, hockey tends to rule over the others but they do exist. It doesn’t matter the color, shape or size, athletes just have the ability to pull it off better than everyone else.

Facial hair is pretty much a love it or hate it feature. Some girls love it on the guys and others can’t stand it . Either way, guys love to go crazy when it comes to facial hair; it’s all about the way you shave it.

I’d have to say, hockey definitely doesn’t have all of beards. There are a variety of beards of all shapes and sizes. A normal person can’t necessarily pull off some of these beards.

These beards may give you a good laugh. Some of them are long, but others are just shaped in a very unique way. Some of these may look crazy, but at least these athletes are able to pull off the look.

If you haven’t checked out the coolest mustaches in sports then you should do that too! Take a look and see if you agree with the best beards in sports, enjoy!

Honestly, if he wasn't a professional athlete then this look wouldn't be very good. Now it's his trademark beard and it would be extremely weird to see him without it.

It's not as big as it used to be, but Reddick's beard was pretty wild for a while. However, when he trimmed it, he lost his bet with WWE star Daniel Bryan.

This is by far the most insane beard out there. It doesn't even look real! I guess it's just the texture of his hair but it's still pretty impressive.

Harden has more hair on his face than he does on the top of his head. I don't even know how to describe this beard, it's just pretty cool.

Zetterberg is considered to have one of the "best" playoff beards in the NHL. I don't know why but everyone seems to love it.

Burns' beard is just perfect for a hockey player. Not every guy can pull off the facial hair in a typical office setting but Burns definitely has the hockey beard down.

He may not be the best closing pitcher in the MLB but at least he can pull off the facial hair. Axford has had quite the interesting history when it comes to facial hair, especially with his unique mustaches.

It's big and bushy, kind of looks like a lumberjack beard. Not everyone can pull off the thick-haired beard but Mera definitely has one of the best beards in the NHL.

If I saw this beard on a random guy walking on the street, I might be confused. Luckily, Gooden is a professional athlete so he can pull off the crazy style.
