GIF: Nail Yakupov celebrates goal by kissing the logo
It's been a while since we've had a Nail Yakupov celebration, but he gave us one on Wednesday night.
It's been a while since Nail Yakupov had a goal celebration that caught our attention, but he gave us one on Wednesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.
After blasting a perfect slap shot past Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery in the first period Yakupov decided to celebrate his 12th goal of the season by kissing the logo on the front of his jersey.
It's not one of his better ones (nothing will top this celebration from January), but it's still awesome. Hockey needs more guys that aren't robots and add some personality to the game. More Nail Yakupov. More P.K. Subban. More!
Don't like it as an opposing player? There's a simple solution to that: Don't let him score.
Don't like it as a fan? Then you probably hate fun.
