What does Chance the Rapper know about hockey? Based on his Saturday Night Live sketch embodying a New York Knicks reporter covering a Rangers hockey game, not much.

Fans of the rapper will get to see him work his comedic chops in the skit when NBC re-airs his guest hosting SNL episode on Saturday. The Chicago native was on hosting duty back in November, but while SNL is on summer hiatus, NBC is giving fans the chance to catch up on previous episodes they may have missed or just want to see again. Hint: You want to see Chance perform on the show again.

Chance did exceptionally well in hilarious sketches and skits during the show, including the aforementioned "Sports Announcer" sketch, in which he seemed more like a deer caught in headlights than a sports reporter covering a game. His musical skit alongside SNL cast members Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd, in which the men performed Boys II Men-style song "Come Back, Barack," was similarly a big hit with fans.

Both sketches have since racked up millions of views on SNL's YouTube, solidifying Chance's popularity on the show.

While the episode marked Chance's first time on SNL in a guest host capacity, it wasn't the "Work Out" rapper's first time appearing on the show. He performed on SNL on two separate occasions back in 2016.

Accompanying Chance was musical guest Eminem, who hit the SNL stage for the first time in four years. The Detroit rapper performed a three-song melody of hits including his 2017 release, "Walk on Water," and classics like "Love the Way You Lie" and "Stan."

The re-run episode will air on NBC during SNL's usual timeslot at 11:30 p.m. ET.

No word just yet when the sketch comedy show plans to return with Season 44.
