Alex Trebek shows up at Senators game to help out with 'Jeopardy'

Longtime host watches hockey in Ottawa after being honored in Canada's capital Friday @NHLdotcom

This legendary game-show host participated in Ottawa Senators Jeopardy on Saturday.

Who is Alex Trebek? Correct.

Clad in a personalized Senators jersey, the longtime host of "Jeopardy" participated in a hockey-themed version of his game show during the first period of Ottawa's game against the Arizona Coyotes at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday.

Trebek, a native of Sudbury, Ontario, was named an officer of the order of Canada on Friday, then decided to hang around for the Senators game Saturday. 

"Weekends don't get any better than this, believe me," Trebek told in-arena host Lauren Fine.

Trebek is a hockey player, and the NHL has seeped into the topics on "Jeopardy" in the past, but he isn't the only hockey-loving game-show host. Pat Sajak, whose show "Wheel of Fortune" often either airs before or after "Jeopardy" in nearly every United States market, has regularly been seen at home games of the Los Angeles Kings and Washington Capitals.

Tweet from @patsajak: Alex Trebek at @NHL game in Canada���s capital today and I���m at @NHL game in U.S. capital tonight. Falls somewhere between mildly interesting and pointless.
