On Thursday night, the fictional newsman played by Will Ferrell joined the Fox Sports broadcast of the Los Angeles Kings hockey game against the San Jose Sharks.

Burgundy was on hand for the second period, calling shots and offering some amazing colour commentary, including the tidbit that former Kings player Martin Jones likes to play with puppets during the off-season.

Burgundy also wondered aloud why the Kings would encourage people to bring stray cats to the stadium during the game.

At one point, Kings mascot Bailey brought Burgundy a bean burrito and a glass of milk.
