Nick Grossman Is No More

It's now Nick Grossmann

Those Europeans are quirky fellas in the locker room. Sometimes their names are challenging to pronounce or even spell. That's not exactly the case with newish Flyers defenseman Nick Grossman... excuse me, Nick Grossmann.

You see, after being drafted in 2004 and playing in the NHL since then, his name was misspelled as Grossman with only one 'n' but he was chill with it, didn't really miss that extra consonant. No more! Today, Tim Panaccio tweeted about how Grossmann will have this spelling oversight fixed to match his passport!
Obviously this is breaking news and still developing. Some of the Flyers beats will get deep into the mind of a guy missing a letter for all those years. We all wonder where that pesky 'n' was hiding.

By the way, I checked wikipedia when someone mentioned this earlier and it was already updated.

And they say wikipedia is unreliable...

Horrible trade for Holmgrenn. Grossman only played like 7 games for us.

My second name is 15 characters... as it is double barreled, always made me drop the second part for sports teams!

That's hilarious. Why wouldn't you tell someone your name was spelled incorrectly right away?

It was spelled Grossman when he played in Sweden, too, although it was known his father spells it with two Ns. I always assumed that it was just Nick's preference.

"Here's the deal, Nick. Every great defensive game you play, we give you an extra letter for your name."

He's the Next captain. He got the N on his jersey.

Guess it's a good thing that he cared more about the name on the front rather than the name on the back.

Pretty humble guy...strong silent type I guess. Like his game and name so far...

Quote:
Grossmann, acquired last month from the Dallas Stars, said a Flyers employee noticed the discrepancy when he saw Grossmann's passport. Grossmann confessed his name had been spelled incorrectly since his rookie season in 2006. Philadelphia's 3-2 win over Detroit on Tuesday night was the first game he wore a jersey with the correct spelling of his name in the NHL.

Grossmann said when he was young, he didn't want to complain, saying, "I was just happy to have a jersey with my name on it."

Lavi should give him an extra N every time he does something good, kind of like OSU players get buckeye leaves on their helmet if they make a good play.
