The names of the Blackhawks are finally engraved on the Stanley Cup. But it had to be fixed -- Kris Versteeg's name was spelled incorrectly.

The "s" and the "t" in his last name were out of order. So, the Cup originally had "Kris Vertseeg" instead of "Kris Versteeg."

Above is a picture of the misspelling on the Cup. It has been fixed -- and Versteeg, now a Toronto Maple Leaf, is grateful.

"It's kind of funny. I may never be one of the biggest names in the game but now it'll go down in history as one of the misspells on the Stanley Cup so I'll take it," Versteeg told the Toronto Star.

"It's just a perfect example of my life. Just something crazy and quirky that's always happening to me."

If you look closely at more recent pictures you can tell that Versteeg's name was clearly fixed.

Versteeg and the rights to speedy forward Bill Sweatt were traded to the Maple Leafs for Viktor Stalberg, Philippe Paradis and Christopher DiDomenico.

The Stars have beaten the Hawks in both meetings this year, 4-3 on Oct. 17 and 5-4 on Dec. 29. Cristobal Huet lost the first game, and then was chased in the second after squandering the Hawks' lead. The Hawks host the Stars on Tuesday.

The Vancouver Province ran four pictures of the Blackhawks' Patrick Kane, John Madden and Kris Versteeg apparently having a good time in a limousine with some women -- which is causing quite a stir.
