So Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossman has been an awfully good sport since he entered the league. That is, because his last name is actually spelled Grossmann.
The 27-year old Swede has been in the NHL since 2006, and has had his name spelled with one 'N' ever since.
CSN Philadelphia's Tim Panaccio uncovered this gem yesterday in a post on his Flyers Talk blog.
"When I started off, they put it on the wrong way [in Dallas] and I just kept that way. When I was younger coming up, I didn't want to say anything. I was just happy to have a jersey with my name on it."
Check out the video below, where Grossman fesses up. Good news, though, as the Flyers are giving him a second 'N' going forward. And any trading cards spelled with one 'N' are officially a collectors item!
