We all know that hockey is notorious for the most unusual names in sports. Whether it's the first name, last name or both some names are head scratches based on spelling and pronunciation.

Top of my list, Johnathan Toews. Its pronounced Taves....HUH????

Jonathan Toews is pronounced different ways, a lot of announcers or hockey analyst will say it the way you just did, but a lot of other announcers will pronounce it the way its writen.

The one that really gets to me is Alexander Semin, how do you really pronounce it lol.
