Leo Komarov goal celebration is hockey trolling perfection (Video)

Some goal celebrations are elaborate, with players pretending to kayak down the ice or that their stick is on fire or posing for a photo. And those are just the Russians!

But sometimes, simple is more effective. Like the celebration Moscow Dynamo’s Leo Komarov had in a hugely hyped Kontinental Hockey League game against SKA, as he scored a goal and then did the referee's job.

That’s Komarov gesturing emphatically at the puck three times as it sits behind Alexander Salak, before skating over to celebrate with his teammates.

I haven’t seen power-pointing like that since my Psych 101 project in college.

Of course, mine had more clip art and balloon transitions.

Hopefully this sparks a “mimicking the officials” celly revolution. Like a dude getting tripped and then mocking his opponent with the universal sign for tripping as he goes to the box.

Our only question: If Komarov was still with the Toronto Maple Leafs, how many milliseconds before he gets cross-checked to the side of the head by an opposing player and/or goaltender?
