Really, who remembers their 19th birthday? You've already become an adult -- yay! -- and you're still two years from turning 21 -- boo! 

Here's one way to remember it: Eating Swedish meatballs and licorice at IKEA. 

That's exactly what Sharks rookie William Eklund -- who is from Sweden -- did with two of his Sharks teammates on Tuesday.

Eklund on Tuesday also officially made the Sharks' roster ahead of the regular season, and dazzled plenty of times in the preseason. 

The Sharks selected Eklund with the No. 7 overall selection in this year's NHL draft. Expectations are sky-high for the young forward but first, he'll keep enjoying the finer things in life to bring in his final year as a teenager.
