Just for Men: Vlad (The Dad) Tarasenko


The 2016 Western Conference Final shows the sometimes-drastic gulf between the heavily bearded and the lightly bearded.

Brent Burns, Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks highlight the hairiest portion, while St. Louis Blues sniper Vladimir Tarasenko represents the other end of the spectrum.

(Bask in Burns’ bearded glory here.)

Tarasenko shows that facial hair isn’t the only measure of a man, as glorious as those Sharks look in their face-sweaters. Tarsenko has been an absolute beast at times during the 2016 postseason, and if that wasn’t enough, he even became a father.

We kind of need to call him “Vlad the Dad” from now on, don’t we?
