Earlier today, The Deep Dish opined that all the names of the champion Blackhawks were engraved correctly on the Stanley Cup.â†µâ†µ
Turns out that's true -- but it wasn't, originally. The Toronto Star reports that now-ex-Hawk Kris Versteeg's name was misspelled on the Cup:â†µâ†µ
Kris Versteegâ€™s name was spelled incorrectly. The â€œsâ€ and â€œtâ€ of his surname were transposed.â†µâ†µâ†µ
â†µâ€œItâ€™s kind of funny. I may never be one of the biggest names in the game but now itâ€™ll go down in history as one of the misspells on the Stanley Cup so Iâ€™ll take it,â€ said Versteeg, who was traded to the Maple Leafs from the champs during the off-season.â†µ
â†µâ€œItâ€™s just a perfect example of my life. Just something crazy and quirky thatâ€™s always happening to me.â€
Fortunately, they fixed the error; you can see the work above:â†µâ†µ
Versteeg said the mistake was corrected Monday and he was sent a picture of the new-look Stanley Cup.â†µ
â†µ"I think they just kind of punched (the correct letters) over it, you can tell," he said.
