If someone’s a die-hard Brady Tkachuk fan, it’s fair to assume that the person knows how the hockey star’s surname is spelled. Tkachuk isn’t a new guy to the league, and to add to that: He also has a father who’s a hockey icon with the same last name and a brother that’s one of the biggest stars in the league.
But hey, it’s not the easiest surname to get correctly spelled. But if you’re going to print it on a jersey, it might be worth double-checking that you’re spelling it correctly.
The Canadian sports channel TVA Sports noticed something really funny during an NHL practice. Sitting in the stands was a guy with an Ottawa Senators jersey, with the name Tkachuk on the back, with Brady’s No. 7.

But the reporter immediately noticed something was wrong.
”Excuse me, what’s wrong with the spelling on your jersey?” The reporter asked.
The huge Brady Tkachuk fan didn’t understand what the reporter was talking about.
”I don’t think there’s any spelling errors. No. It’s Tkachuk, I’m a die-hard fan,” he said.
The reporter then asked if there was an ”H” in Tkachuk’s name, and without a doubt, the fan said ”no.”
The reporter had to pull out his phone and prove to the fan that Tkachuk is, in fact, spelled with an H.
When the fans realized, he said he’d been scammed.
”Oh geez, look at that,” he said.
The funniest thing of all? The fan actually had the jersey signed, and we guess it was Brady Tkachuk who signed it. What a hilarious moment!
