One of the keys to the game of hockey is to always be aware of your surroundings... even after you score.
During a Swedish hockey league game between Mora IK and Leksand, Henrik Eriksson of Mora got a little bit too excited after scoring a goal to give his team a 2-1 lead. After deflecting the puck into the net, Eriksson went into full celebration mode, hugging the player nearest to him, who just so happened to be Alen Bibic of Leksand. Bibic, as you could imagine, took exception to the display, giving Eriksson a quick punch to the face.
This hardly ruined the mood for Eriksson however, who, still smiling, skated a little farther to celebrate with players who wouldn't punch him in the face.
Eriksson's Mora squad would ultimately lose the game 3-2, making us believe he stopped smiling at some point.
