Hockey goal celebrations have evolved over time from the simple arm-raise to the firecracker approach made famous by Alex Ovechkin(notes). The jump-into-the-glass goal celebration made famous by Ovechkin has become commonplace in the NHL with variations from the belly flop into the glass to the sideways cannonball.

Andersen, who wasn't selected in last June's NHL Entry Draft, was not injured and Leksand defeated Bjorkloven 4-0 to put themselves atop the standings in Allsvenska.
