Amazon’s Alexa can now answer tons of hockey-related questions

Alexa is now competing with Google Assistant's hockey skills

Amazon Alexa

Amazon Echo is starting to catch up to Google Home’s hockey knowledge.

Amazon has shared a new list of hockey commands that users can use with Alexa.

Users can now ask questions like “who will win the Stanley Cup?” or “what time is the Golden Knights game?”

Amazon has also added a new hockey playlist to Prime Music, so users can ask Alexa to play ‘Hockey Rock,’ and a playlist of what Amazon refers to as “hockey game classics” will start playing.

The full list of Alexa hockey phrases can be seen below.

  • Who will win the Stanley Cup?
  • Who do you want to win the Stanley Cup?
  • Give me a recap of last night’s NHL game.
  • When do the capitals play next?
  • What time is the Golden Knights game?
  • What were Tom Wilson’s stats yesterday?
  • How many goals does Devante Smith-Pelly have?
  • How many goals did Crosby score?
  • How many Stanley Cups do the Oilers have?
  • Tell me a Golden Knights joke.
  • Tell me a Stanley Cup joke.
  • Tell me a hockey Poem
  • Do you like hockey?

All of these commands have to be prefaced with ‘Alexa.’ Fortunately, users are not locked in to only learning about the Golden Knights or Capitals — these are just the examples Amazon provided.
