Rookie Liam O'Brien Is Pretty Awesome
DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, October 15, 2014
Caps rookie center Liam O'Brien has only played 3 NHL games but he's already starting to get some notice from fans. O'Brien got into a fight in his first career NHL game (and the Caps opening game of the season) and during Tuesday's shootout loss to the Sharks had a rather interesting game in the 6 minutes he was on the ice.
Check out these two GIFs including a very funny tongue sticking out move:
First, O'Brien got into a little scrap with the Sharks giant human being John Scott. Scott, who somehow scored a goal earlier in the night, gave Liam a little stick shove to the face to which the rookie did the following:
Lol. Love the tongue sticking out move with the evil smile. Just a few seconds before this happened, O'Brien picked up the first point of his career, an assist on a Mike Green goal. The rookie was quite happy, and we learned that the 20 year old calls Mike Green by his full name as he joined his teammate to celebrate. (Ok maybe he said Attaboy Greenie) but I like mine - (see comments).
So yeah, we pretty much love this guy here so far...
