We’re one week into "No-Shave November," where participants forego facial shaving to raise awareness on cancer prevention and education.

12 News anchor Paul Gerke is getting hairy for the month-long challenge, reaching out to Arizona Coyotes team to see who is the beardiest of them all.

“Alex Goligoski has the best beard, it fills up pretty nice,” said defenseman Kevin Connauton.

“All the young guys here, they can’t even grow facial hair so all those young men are probably the worst,” said left winger Anthony Duclair.

Is there an advantage to growing facial hair?

“You save a lot of time in the morning. You wake up and save time because you don’t have to worry about your face at all,” said Lawson Crouse.

If you’ve always wanted to forego shaving, create a makeshift soup strainer, and grow awareness to cancer prevention, visit No-Shave November's website for more details.
