Hilarious way Sharks rookie Eklund celebrated 19th birthday originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Really, who remembers their 19th birthday? You've already become an adult -- yay! -- and you're still two years from turning 21 -- boo!
Here's one way to remember it: Eating Swedish meatballs and licorice at IKEA.
That's exactly what Sharks rookie William Eklund -- who is from Sweden -- did with two of his Sharks teammates on Tuesday.

The Sharks selected Eklund with the No. 7 overall selection in this year's NHL draft. Expectations are sky-high for the young forward but first, he'll keep enjoying the finer things in life to bring in his final year as a teenager.
