When 8-year-old Noah Young takes to the ice as a hockey goalie for his Canadian junior team, he has two goals in mind: to stop as many shots as possible and to dance like everybody is watching.
We don’t know if Young is a capable goalie, but the video below proves that he can dance—in full pads no less—with the best of them. Here he is dominating ‘Juju On That Beat’ before a recent playoff game.
The video was posted earlier this week, and it’s garnered more than 4.6 million views on Facebook, turning Young into a dancing viral star. His mom, Paige Rowswell, told the Toronto Sun that young Noah took a hip-hop dance class last year and might have found another passion.
“When he’s not at net, you’ll see him dancing on the bench every time the whistle blows,” Rowswell told the paper.
Young, though, isn’t the first hockey goalie to dance his heart out on the ice. This goalie danced the Wobble while on skates, and this goalie proved you can bounce on the bench to heavy metal’s Sevendust.
But as good as Young is, New Jersey Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid is confident. He thinks he has what it takes to lay down a challenge to Young.
@AdamHenrique I could give him a run for his money. Only one way to settle this.. dance off— Keith Kinkaid (@Blockaid1) March 1, 2017
No doubt that our money would be on the 8-year-old to win that contest.
