Winnipeg Jets fans might want to keep their eyes peeled for The Old Spice guy donning just a towel at Saturday's game.

Isaiah Mustafa, known for being ridiculously handsome and starring in several ads for Old Spice, is a Jets fan.

The actor tweeted his fandom on Wednesday — revealing a bracket that put the Jets on top in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"Here's my #NHLBracketChallenge @NHL. Who are you picking??? (@LAKings always in my heart) I'll take @NHLJets #GKG," he tweeted.

Mustafa said since the Los Angeles Kings are out, he's Jets all the way.

"Hey @NHLJets, since my beloved @LAKings are resting up for next year, my fanship is on loan to you for the duration of #StanleyCupPlayoffs," he tweeted.

And perhaps the most titillating of tweets: what he plans to wear for a Winnipeg Jets Whiteout.

"So @NHLJets, I'm gonna need a Byfulglien jersey and... I can just wear my towel for the #Winnipegwhiteout, right? #StanleyCupPlayoffs"

For the uninitiated: Jets fans wear all white to playoff games, a tradition that started before the team relocated from and back to the Prairie city.

A spokesperson for the Winnipeg Jets said they've been in touch with Mustafa over Twitter, and the team is thrilled to get support from any fan.

Mustafa will be on CBC Radio's Up to Speed at 4:10 p.m. CT on Thursday. Tune into 89.3 FM to hear where his fandom came from — and if he really does plan to visit the River City for Saturday's playoff game against the Anaheim Ducks in Winnipeg.
