During a recent interview, Edmonton Oilers defenseman Mattias Ekholm was asked an amusing question by reporters about his teammate Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. The question posed to Ekholm was, "Have you thought about donating some of your beard to Nuge for the playoff run?"

The question drew laughs from Ekholm and the reporters in attendance, highlighting the camaraderie and humor that can exist outside of the seriousness of the game. Ekholm, being a good sport, responded with a chuckle and a joke of his own:


While the question was lighthearted, it speaks to the close relationships that can develop between teammates during a long and grueling NHL season. Nugent-Hopkins and Ekholm, along with the rest of the Oilers, will need to rely on each other and their team chemistry as they look to make a deep playoff run this year.
