A contestant on the game show, Jeopardy got a little confused when confronted by a NHL question recently and somehow mistook Magic Johnson for Wayne Gretzky.

The contestant, who's name is Joe was faced with the question

"100+ assists in an NHL season has been accomplished only 13 times, 11 times by this player."

Joe answered and said the name of LA Lakers legend Johnson, who in fact has never played a single game in the NHL.

You can watch the whole clip in the video above as another contestant finally gives the correct answer.

Apparently Joe has received plenty of reminders of the incident from his friends so he's unlikely to make the same mistake again.
