Why does this have anything to do with the LA Kings?

Well, can you guess who Trebek recommended to take over for him as Jeopardy host?

Can you say, "Who is Alex Faust?"

Tweet from @TMZ: 'Jeopardy' Host Alex Trebek May Retire, Wants LA Kings Announcer to Replace Him

Faust isn't upset about waking up to being featured on TMZ ...

Tweet from @alex_faust: I guess there are worse ways to randomly see your name show up on TMZ! 🤷���������I���m flattered by Mr. Trebek���s kind words, and delighted to hear he���s a big @LAKings fan! 👑

And, of course, Twitter is having their own reactions to this news.

Tweet from @tbudar: So what���s going on @alex_faust ?

Tweet from @hannahbrad: THIS IS AWESOME. @alex_faust

Tweet from @gopherstate: 1) That is amazing, Alex! 2) It would make the "obscure hockey player hometowns" category I've joked about wanting on "Jeopardy" for years slightly more possible.

... if that happens, then maybe we'll let Jeopardy borrow him.
