Lazlo Holmes is ready to 'do that hockey' again.

The sideline reporter, who made his NHL debut on "Saturday Night Live" in November 2017, will appear during the second intermission of the season-opening game between the Washington Capitals and St. Louis Blues at Enterprise Center on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

You might remember Holmes as the NBA's New York Knicks sideline reporter for MSG Network, tasked with replacing Paul Hanley, who was on paternity leave. You also might recall that Holmes was deeply confused with the rules of hockey and found it "much colder" than his regular duties covering basketball.

He also had a hard time pronouncing the name of New York Rangers defenseman Brady Skjei. Of course, the most memorable moment was when he said "let's do that hockey thing."

Holmes has had almost two years to brush up on hockey since his viral moment. We'll see if he's learned a thing or two or will just be cold again.
