DETROIT — Call it what you want — the Caveman look, Chewbacca in a jersey — but Sharks forward Brent Burns is giving it up for charity.

Yes, all that hair is going to meet the razor blade.

The goal is to raise $5,000 for each of two charities — Defending the Blue Line, which provides hockey equipment and other services for children in military families, and the Katie Moore Foundation, which aids families dealing with rare cancers.

Burns has agreed to let an unspecified teammate give him a buzz cut and shave his beard on Nov. 1. Until then, the Sharks Foundation will accept contributions for the two charities.

As added incentive, anyone donating $50 or more will get signed "before and after" photos and the top three donors will be able to witness the shaving.
