A Canadian toddler from Ontario is melting netizens’ hearts as he tries his hand at playing the national sport of ice hockey. A TikTok video, that is now going viral on Twitter, shows a young boy dressed up in Ice hockey gear, holding a mini hockey stick and trying his own way of scoring a goal. When at first the boy fails to strike the goal, he goes up to the mini-goal net and drags it towards the puck.
The video has been shared on Twitter by several users including Rex Chapman who wrote in the caption that little man has it all figured out and is an inspiration to work smarter. The tweet has garnered over 1.3 million views, 39.6K likes, and over 5.7K retweets on the microblogging site.
Netizens are in awe of the little toddler who displayed his smartness and innocence through this video. One of the users described the child as a “clever little man” and further said that it is equally impressive that he is on skates on the slippery ice ground. Another user wrote that it is amazing that he could stand up without falling. In a sarcastic take on the boy’s trick, one user wrote that the Canadian National Hockey League should not watch the clip.

He's young to realise all you need to do is move the goal post!— SeaBreeze – Shellee (@SeaBreeze1310) March 4, 2021
