Joe Thornton reveals he shaved his signature beard with help from daughter

At a time when facial hair is growing unabashedly across a shut-down country, one of hockey’s most well-known beards has disappeared.

Sharks center Joe Thornton chopped off his beard for the first time in nearly two years, the team revealed in a video, which showed the before and after, with some help from his daughter, Ayla, who channeled “I Dream of Jeannie” to show the stunning change.

The 40-year-old Thornton started growing his graybeard during the 2015-16 season as he and Sharks defenseman Brent Burns , which they dubbed “lifestyle beards.” There was one slight interruption, when Burns shaved Thornton’s beard at a team party just before the 2018 season, but Thornton had spent every day since then growing it back.

“I regretted [shaving] as soon as it started hitting the floor,” Thornton told reporters in 2018. “Hopefully it’ll grow back quickly.”

Thornton’s son was not a fan of him clean-shaven at the time.

“My 5-year-old wasn’t happy this morning when he woke up,” Thornton said. “He didn’t want to see dad, so I’ve got to make it up to him.”

With the NHL’s , Thornton has some time to start growing his beard back in. He won’t need to worry about growing one for the playoffs, though — if there are playoffs — as the Sharks were in last place in the Western Conference at the time the season was suspended.
