Latvia goaltender Elvis Merzlikins was pretty fired up after his shutout Saturday.

The 23-year-old turned away all 27 Denmark shots to help his club earn a 3-0 win in World Championship play. After the final horn sounded, he tackled one of his teammates out of pure elation.

Merzlikins is a 2014 Columbus Blue Jackets draft pick. He's helped his national club get out to a good start in the tournament, as Latvia currently sits tied for top spot in Group A along with Germany - yes, Germany.
