Because Noah has some moves. And he's not afraid to break them out everywhere.

"He’d be in net and you’d see him popping along during the breaks. In the dressing room. He dances everywhere," Noah's mom, Paige Rowswell, told BuzzFeed Canada.

"That’s kind of like his thing."

And now more than 3 million people have watched Noah getting down to “Juju On That Beat” at a recent game.

Although Noah's dancing is nothing new, this particular video went massively viral after getting picked up by ViralNation and shared by the "Your Everyday Canadian" Facebook page.

Rowswell found out about the video on Monday after a friend tagged her. By then, Noah was already a star.

"We kind of watched it just grow and grow and grow," she said. "I was shocked that it went viral."

"Insane and crazy are my top words right now," she added.

Noah actually takes hip-hop dance classes, which is where those sweet moves come from. "He just loves to dance," said Rowswell. "This is him, this is who he is."

Although he may be letting the viral fame get to his head just a little bit.

"Monday night he thought he should be able to have a chocolate bar at 9 p.m. because he’d gone viral," said Rowswell, laughing.

He didn't get the chocolate, but he does have the nation's admiration.
