Jakub Vrana just got a new celly in NHL19 and it’s incredible.

After scoring with Digi Vrana from the high slot, Eddy hit triangle for Jake the Snake’s celebration.
HEY! Wait a second.
… HE DID.
V reaches out for a fist bump from a teammate, but no one reciprocates. So he fist bumps himself.
“My first reaction was confusion,” Eddy said.” At first, I couldn’t really see what it was, so got into replay mode and I saw him looking for a player to fist bump and then just fist-bumps himself. I laughed. I thought to myself, I wish I had Connolly on the same line with him for that play.”
Of course, Eddy is referring to Brett Connolly, who became one half of the NHL’s GIF of the year last season after not giving Evgeny Kuznetsov a fist bump on the bench. Kuzy, not wanting to be left hanging, just fist-bumped himself.
Connolly’s obliviousness continued in the 2018-19 season. During an October 18 game against the Florida Panthers, Vrana found Connolly wide open in front of the net for a second-period goal. When the two teammates went back to the bench. Vrana wanted a fist bump. It happened again.
“With most of the new cards (players) coming to HUT (Hockey Ultimate Team mode), EA adds some special goal celebrations to numerous players,” Eddy explained. “They don’t tell you what players or what celebrations they add. Most of us find this one out randomly by pressing the Triangle button on PS4 or the Y button on Xbox, or if someone will post this on Reddit or Twitter.”
What an amazing Easter egg.
