The Washington Capitals organization loves bobbleheads. They’ve given out countless resin statues in recent years. At blood drives, at home games, or as part of the team’s Kids Club: tons tiny, oddly proportioned Caps players have made their way into fans’ homes.

Tonight we add another to that family: mustached George Parros Troy Brouwer.

Troy’s handlebar look is because of Movember. Many Caps — most notably Karl Alzner and Alex Ovechkin — are growing ‘staches this month to raise money and awareness for cancer research and mental health.

So the Brouw bobblehead– the Brouwblehead– is particularly awesome– even though it looks more like Super Mario than #20.

    A joel ward garden gnome next plz! I’ll give it to my grandkids someday

  • brian!

    Good to see I’m not the only one stuck inside studying Tort Law on game days.

  • Shaun Phillips

    I dunno. That Nicky the Gnome was pretty freaky looking. Keep expecting it to come alive and kill us in our sleep.

  • The Peerless

    Tort law and hockey…they go together like anchovies and caramel sauce

  • serpent

    They didn’t get the eyes correctly. Troy has Legolas eyes.

  • Red

    Looks more like Clutterbuck, whose head Troy was tempted to bobble all game.

  • William

    Hmm…Sorry troy but, the nick backstrom garden gnome takes the cake.
