When you’re a winner, there is no time to be wasted.
We all remember when captain Alex Ovechkin went on a party binge when the Washington Capitals won their first franchise championship last summer. The Russian superstar made headlines as he was visibly drunk in a water fountain and kept the drinking going for weeks on end with the Stanley Cup.
Well, another player channeled his inner Alex Ovechkin and might have beat the Caps captain with his celebration.
Leksand’s Jon Knuts was found celebrating with fans over 30 miles from where his team won a game to send the team back to the top league in the SHL. Knuts was found celebrating with fans, except the extraordinary thing was that he was still in his equipment from the game, skates and all.
Imagine you’re sitting in a bar and in walks a professional hockey player in his full equipment. I bet this guy drank more than Ovi that night!
There is a picture of Knuts, shirtless in the show, hanging in his full gear with fans as his team managed finally getting back into the top league in the SHL.
This guy must be a blast to have as your teammate - or drinking buddy!
