Jack Johnson Tebowing

Tebowing is a growing phenomenon these days, with fans and now players continuing in Tim Tebow’s footsteps as he kneels for a prayer after a touchdown. Tebowing first made its way to the iceĀ  in December when Colton Orr of the Toronto Maple Leafs did it gracefully after scoring a shootout goal in a Maple Leafs event.

Now, Jack Johnson of the Los Angeles Kings has become the first NHL star to tebow as a goal celebration. Johnson, who had last scored a goal on December 1st, 2011, apparently made a promise to friends that he would tebow after his next goal. Teammates and fans didn’t have to wait long as Johnson tallied last night, the day after making his deal. He added an assist on the night, and helped his team to a 5-2 victory over the Washington Capitals, but his goal celebration has clearly stolen the show.

Check out the video below for a full highlight of Jack Johnson’s tebowing action, along with his five-hole snipe.
