The Howard Huskies’ Jack Cavanaugh loves “scoring goals” and “winning.”
Last night, the tiny hockey player did both during the Capitals’ Mites On Ice game, but it was his Mark Ingram-inspired celly that got him the attention of the National Hockey League.

After scoring low to the ice short side, Jack slid on his side and put his hand to his head and posed.
The celly was a perfect homage to Mark Ingram’s touchdown celebration though according to Jack, he came up with it “in the moment.”
“What a beauty,” the NHL wrote on Twitter.

The celebration even got attention from the Baltimore Ravens on Instagram.
Jack was one of three Cavanaughs playing. He added he was “happy, proud, and excited” when the puck went in. After his goal, Alex Ovechkin, his favorite player, scored three times himself.
