Evgeny Kuznetsov‘s now-iconic bird walk celly is continuing to make stops on its world tour. This time around it made an appearance during Team Great Britain’s World Championship game against Mexico on Friday.
As the Division II Group A game made its way to overtime at the Dumfries Ice Bowl, Scotland, forward Georgina Farman set up teammate Verity Lewis for her first ever World Championship goal for Great Britain.
Then, Farman decided that they needed to celebrate… bird walk style.

The top shelf tally from Lewis secured the 3-2 victory over Mexico for Team Great Britain, who are battling for a promotion to Division I next year. The opening game win kick-started Great Britain’s campaign, so it’s understandable that Farman couldn’t contain her excitement.

Farman has the technique down pretty darn well, if we do say so ourselves.
However, Farman’s bird walk celly isn’t the only Capitals connection that the forward has. During the regular season, Farman plays for Brynäs IF in Gävle, in the same organization as Nicklas Backstrom’s hometown club before he joined the NHL. Over her 36 games for Brynäs during the 2018-19 season, Farman tallied three goals, and six assists.
Here’s hoping Farman has a few more opportunities over Great Britain’s World Championship bid to break out the bird walk celly.
