Top 10 Goal Celebrations

Patrick Smith

Scoring a beauty of a goal can often lead to throwing all modesty out the window. Should you feel the need to wildly celebrate, here are 10 celly inspirations to draw from.

10. Gun in a Holster
Patrik Laine has been a force in his rookie season with the Winnipeg Jets. Netting this one-timer from the point results in subtle but effective celly from the Finnish sniper.

 9. Subban’s Crest Pull

It’s not secret that P.K.Subban loved playing for the Montreal Canadiens. After scoring an OT winner, Subban showed his team some love by pulling the crest of his jersey. Senators goaltender Craig Anderson later called the celebration “unnecessary.”



8. The Stick is Hot

After scoring his 50th goal of the season against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Alexander Ovechkin warmed his hands over his stick, suggesting it was on fire.

7. Riding the Stick 

 A classic celebration now performed by many around the world, riding the stick in celebration was originally done by NHL Alumni Tiger Williams.

6. The Ovi Dance

The only appropriate way to react to scoring a game-tying goal.

5.  Going Swimming

Probably one of the most unique goal celebrations, former Colorado Avalanche assistant Captain Milan Hejduk displays his swimming skills on frozen water.

4. The Running Man

A classic and simple celly, the running man dates back to Wayne Gretzky‘s days with the Los Angeles Kings. It didn’t hurt that it was the goal that helped him surpass Gordie Howe‘s record for all-time goals scored.

3. The Jagr Salute

The celebration was somewhat of a signature of Jagr during his early days in the NHL. The salute hasn’t been seen as frequently lately.

2. Selanne Shooting

How else would you celebrate after breaking the NHL’s single-season record for goals by a rookie?

1. A Flurry of Fleury

Theo Fleury used the entire ice surface to celebrate after scoring a classic OT playoff winner.
