Golden Gophers hockey players celebrate goal, get helmets stuck together (VIDEO)

The hockey battle between No. 1 Minnesota Golden Gophers against No. 5 Boston College got off to an great start Friday night.

Hudson Fasching, a Los Angeles Kings prospect and Minnesota freshman forward, scored just 30 seconds into the game by scoring on a rebound to make it 1-0. The Gophers came together to celebrate the goal and as most of the players skated to the bench, Fasching and teammate Brady Skjei, a first-round pick of the New York Rangers, couldn't seem to part. Turns out their helmets were stuck together.

Fasching used his head, though. He took his helmet off and continued the goal celebration helmetless. 

In college hockey, full face masks are required, so this type of situation is unique and rarely happens. In the NHL, removing your lid could land you in the penalty box.
