The Ottawa Senators can’t spell each other’s last names

Hockey is a sport loaded with names that are difficult to pronounce and almost impossible to spell. Even if you're a dedicated fan you might find yourself struggling, especially if you root for the Ottawa Senators. As it turns out, the Senators are no different, even when the question involves one of their teammates. 

Numerous Ottawa Senators were asked to spell a teammate's last name. From Zibanejad to Dziurzynski, the Senators continually got the spelling wrong, in some cases missing the actual spelling by a wide, and hilarious margin.

To be fair, Ottawa has some of the most difficult names to spell in the league, but you'd think these players might fair a bit better. After all, they only spend nearly every waking minute together, most of the time with their last name on the back of their shirt.
