Norwegian player’s victory dance redefines postgame celebrations (Video)

Narvik Hockey, a.k.a the Arctic Eagles, is a second division side in Norway. On Saturday, they disposed of last place Viking Hockey (every Norwegian hockey team has an awesome name, apparently) 8-3, but while there was cause for celebration thanks to the victory, the real highlight came after the game.

As both teams were heading to their respective locker rooms, Narvik forward Adrian Alvarstein felt a little more celebrating needed to be done. So when the arena started playing DJ Contiez's "Trumpsta", Alvarstein got bumpin':

As you can imagine, Alvarstein has practiced these moves before. He told NRK.no that showing them off was limited to only the Narvik locker room. "I'm trying to get it out to all of Norway. When people hear the song, they should know that there is this dance that apply," he said.

"I do not dance much myself, but [I promise] to practice it before the season is over," joked Narvik head coach Magnus Skogfält.

Alvarstein comes with an interesting background, as he told NRK.no in 2012. He was born in Swaziland, Africa in 1991 and abandoned on the steps of a church with his umbilical cord still intact. He was sent to an orphanage and eventually adopted by a Norwegian woman who was unable to have children. He began skating at a young age and has been playing high level hockey in Norway since he was 16.

He also likely has been developing his dance moves even further back.

Said a Viking Hockey Club player (maybe the guy who stuck around to watch all the way to the end?) upon seeing Alvarstein break it down: "God, how sick it is in Narvik!"
