VIDEO: Norwegian hockey player's celebratory dance one for the ages
Adrian Alvarstein celebrated his team's 8-3 win with a tremendous post-game dance for the home fans.
Winning is fun, but maybe it’s never been this fun. Adrian Alvarstein, a forward for Norwegian second division club Narvik Hockey, was really, really excited about his team beating Viking Hockey 8-3 on home ice. So excited that he decided he just had to dance. And did he ever dance.
The spin at the end puts a nice exclamation point on the whole thing. Also, it looks like the dance moves may have mesmerized a couple players from the other team (the guys in the white jerseys in the video), since they didn't seem to want to get off the ice while Alvarstein was whipping the crowd into a frenzy.
Sean Leahy of Puck Daddy has more on perhaps the greatest post-game celebration in hockey history:
As both teams were heading to their respective locker rooms, Narvik forward Adrian Alvarstein felt a little more celebrating needed to be done. So when the arena started playing DJ Contiez's "Trumpsta", Alvarstein got bumpin'.
As you can imagine, Alvarstein has practiced these moves before. He told NRK.no that showing them off was limited to only the Narvik locker room. "I'm trying to get it out to all of Norway. When people hear the song, they should know that there is this dance that apply," he said.
Alvarstein, who was born in Swaziland, Africa, of all places, has five points so far this season for Narvik Hockey. He might not be one of the top producers on the squad, but he's definitely its best entertainer.
