Finnish Hockey Player Scores One For the Fans
We chose this video for a few reasons. First and foremost, this is a game in the Mestis League in Finland, between TUTO and KooKoo. Somehow those are actually the names. Yeah, I don't get it either.
Iiro Vehmanen, playing for TUTO pots a goal around the 0:35 second mark of the video, and completes it with an awesome celebration. He clearly had this one thought out for a while, as he sprints right for the boards and climbs on up. Absolutely love the kiss to the crowd, completely ignoring his teammates til he's good and done.
And if you didn't notice this the first time around, did anyone hear the announcer at the 0:47 mark? Why does he name drop Rocky Balboa not once, but twice? That's just good announcing work, right there.
Its not the NHL, but its still good hockey.
