With the San Francisco 49ers playing in Super Bowl 47 this weekend, their success has been rubbing off on another Bay Area team.
Sharks forward Logan Couture paid homage to their nearby NFL counterparts by using Colin Kaepernick’s trademarked celebration. After Couture stole the puck at center ice and ripped a wrister past Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk, Couture curled his bicep and kissed it, a move that has been dubbed “Kaepernicking”. Check it out.
We’ll see if Couture keeps up the celebration or if it’s just a one-time-only deal to congratulate their NFL neighbors. The Sharks are undefeated through seven games, so they might have a lot more celebrating to do this season.
