St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie became an instant star on Saturday morning, as his incredible effort in a shootout lead the United States men’s hockey team to a big win over Russia in the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Oshie had his number called time after time as Team USA attempted to get the win, and he was finally able to sneak the puck past Sergei Bobrovsky for the win.

After the game, Oshie was asked what it felt like to become a U.S. hero, but he was quick to let everyone know that he does not believe he has earned that label.

With that simple, but brilliant quote, Oshie has just earned himself a large number of new fans.
