Could hockey analyst be the next episode for The Doggfather?

Snoop Dogg tried his hand in the world of hockey broadcasting during a clash between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Saturday night.

The hip hop artist was invited by the Kings as a “celebrity guest of honour” for Hockey Night in LA and luckily for all of us, we got to see Snoop drop it like it’s hotĀ in more ways than one.

The evening began with Snoop Dogg spinning tracks during warmup as a guest DJ, followed by him participating in a ceremonial puck drop with captains Anze Kopitar and Sidney Crosby.

After he literally dropped the puck as if it were sizzling, Snoop Dogg jumped behind the mic in the LA Kings broadcast booth as an analyst and dropped gold.

Clearly a fan of the physical side of the game, Snoop had everyone laughing as he reacted to a scrum after a whistle.

“Hold on now, get it crackin’ then, let’s goā€”Snoop Dogg in the house let me see something! Drop the sticks man let’s get crackin’ man, to the middle of the rink let’s go!”

Snoop took it up a notch when he was given the play-by-play reigns for an entire Kings power play toward the end of the first period.

“Who want the money? Who want the money?! Somebody gotta want that moolah,” Snoop exclaimed, demanding that a Kings player put a shot on net.

Clearly this was unlike any other broadcast in the history of the sport.

The rapper’s night didn’t end in the booth as he stole the show during the post-game press conference, jokingly claiming he believes he could be a hockey analyst and telling media he was the new owner of the Kings.

The Kings walked away with a 4-2 victory and NHL fans were left hoping that they’d see more of Snoop Dogg around the league in the future.
