Celebrating A Goal With The Other Team Will Get You Punched In The Face (Video)

eriksson goal celebrationI wouldn’t call Henrik Eriksson’s goal celebration with a member of the opposing team creative, but I do consider it to be quite daring.  After all, the Mora IK forward was lucky to have received only one punch to the face while hugging a defender on Leksand following his tip-in goal in front of the net.

Had Eriksson pulled a stunt like that on North American ice, he likely would have been on the receiving end of a beating worthy of our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night.”

Here is a look at the celebration.
