You know that guy Brent Burns on the San Jose Sharks? He was a defenceman, now he’s a forward, and he has crazy hair and an untamed beard. This guy. According to San Jose Mercury News, Burns shaved his head today to raise $24,000 for two separate charities. You can watch video of the shaving by clicking here.

Burns’ hair and beard shave was done in support of Defending the Blue Line, who distribute hockey equipment to military families. And, the Katie Moore Foundation, established by former Shark Dominic Moore, whose wife tragically passed away a victim of cancer. Info about Burns’ hair shave courtesy of San Jose Mercury News
