During his team's 6-2 win over Leksand on Sunday in the second-tier Swedish league HockeyAllsvenskan, Wennberg -- en route to a hat trick -- scored his second goal of the night by crashing the net and unknowingly hiding the puck in his pants after it was quickly turned aside by goaltender Erik Hanses:
