Photos: Quenneville’s ‘Stache Throughout The Years

(CBS) Like a fine wine, some things simply get better with age.

For 54-year-old head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks, Joel Quenneville, his mustache is no exception.

Over the better part of four decades (we assume), Quenneville’s ‘stache has been quietly – but prominently – resting above his upper lip.

In 2010, Quenneville’s wife Elizabeth had this to stay about her husband’s famous facial hair:

“Thank God I didn’t know him before the mustache,” she told the Tribune. “I’ve seen pictures of Joel younger without it, but as long as I’ve known him, he’s always had it.”

For no reason other than the Blackhawks are in the Stanley Cup Final and we want to, here’s a montage of Quenneville’s ‘stache throughout the years.
