Worst "Jeopardy!" answer ever? Maybe.

A contestant named Joe drew a rare "Oh no" from host Alex Trebek when he answered a fairly easy hockey question with "Who is Magic Johnson?"

He was responding to this clue: "100+ assists has been accomplished only 13 times in an NHL season, 11 times by this player."

The correct answer? Wayne Gretzky.

While that may not be obvious to many, what should be obvious is that Magic Johnson had nothing to do with hockey or the NHL.

As Trebek, a Canada native, added: "We’re talking about hockey, not the NBA."

Doh.
