Swedish goalie: I have a hat trick for you … in my pants (video)

It’s one thing to score a goal from you pants in a professional hockey game — it’s quite another for the officials to review the play and uphold that goal. That’s what happened in a second-tier Swedish League Hockey game on Sunday, as Djurgarden’s Alexander Wennberg scored a hat trick in his team’s 6-2 win over Leksand, including this goal, in which he seemingly hid the puck in his pants.

The officials reviewed the goal and upheld it, meaning that we have the world’s first known pants goal. Look, without the NHL, things like this are going to have to suffice.

    I also love the goal shot weakly from the defensive blue line, tipped in the neutral zone and the one hopper beats the goalie. Ouch.
