This famous Canadian announced the Ottawa Senators’ third overall pick of the 2020 NHL Draft.
Who is Alex Trebek? That is correct.
In a surprise move, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman on Tuesday announced that “The Senators have enlisted the services of a special guest who also happens to be a graduate of the University of Ottawa.”
Then, that all too familiar “Jeopardy!” music came on before the Senators’ third overall pick of the draft was revealed:
“Thank you, Johnny. Welcome to ‘Jeopardy!,'” Trebek said. “Our category today is the NHL. And here is the clue for you: With the third pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, the Ottawa Senators choose this player.”
“The correct response? Who is Tim Stutzle.”
It was a nice touch for the youngster, a center from Germany who is great with the puck and who brings elite hands, speed, hockey sense and IQ to a young and talented Senators roster.
Trebek, a native of Sudbury, Ontario — which is where No. 2 overall pick Quinton Byfield plays for the Wolves — graduated from the University of Ottawa in 1961. The long-time host of “Jeopardy!” has been battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
