Bruins announcer Jack Edwards struggles to pronounce 'Athanasiou' (Video)

Boston Bruins TV play-by-play man Jack Edwards struggled to pronounce the name of Detroit Red Wings center Andreas Athanasiou during the first period of Thursday night's game at the TD Center.

"Beleskey takes a chop at the puck, and Andreas Atha...Athash...Easy for you to say. Athana...Atha...Ha...Athathanasiou. That's gonna make some highlight reels, I can tell already."

Well, you got that right, Jack. We have to admit that many of us would have had trouble with that one, but shouldn't someone behind the scenes at NESN be giving Edwards the proper pronunciation of these names? Shouldn't it be on a piece of paper during the broadcast so he can just look it up?
