Scoring great goals is fun, and so is a great celebration. Fortunately one young hockey player combined the two Saturday.

A young wise-beyond-his-years hockey player delivered an epic moonwalk after scoring a spin-o-rama goal during the first intermission of the San Jose Sharks game against the New York Islanders.

The player scored the highlight reel goal during an intermission breakaway contest, then delivered an epic celebration originally popularized by Michael Jackson in the 1980s.

The little player stole hearts, but another one warmed them when he scored then fell over while celebrating during the same intermission.

We're sure no hockey players were hurt while celebrating.
