The San Jose Sharks are playing well, but their post-goal celebrations could use a little work.

Enter Sam Tracy.

The Sharks invited the young moonwalking hockey player to practice to teach forwards Timo Meier and Kevin Labanc the art of the celly Monday.

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: You know what our cellys need? More moonwalks. So we brought intermission shootout star Sam to practice today to teach @MeierTimo and @Str8ToTheBanc a thing or two!

Tracy pulled off an incredible spin-o-rama during a first-intermission shootout competition and went viral with his spectacular dance move Nov. 24. 

Tracy was at practice and he, Meier and Labanc had a serious talk about the best way to style after scoring a goal. Then they teamed up for a group moonwalk after Tracy scored a breakaway, between-the-legs goal.

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: How did they do? 😂 @MeierTimo @Str8ToTheBanc

Who did it best?

Labanc and Meier will have the chance to put Tracy's tutelage to work when San Jose goes for its third straight win against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.
