Here's a look at the complete trailer featuring Snoop's arrival in the game:

It's actually not the first time the Hollywood Walk of Fame recipient has called hockey.

In January, he visited the Fox Sports West booth during a game between the Los Angeles Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins, and the result was television gold:

Snoop becomes the latest person from outside the hockey world added to the game. In November, EA Sports added Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

NHL 20 is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
