Penguins winger Conor Sheary’s name has been mispronounced this whole time

November 2, 2017 GMT

The Penguins’ Conor Sheary has a correction for fans — the pronunciation of his last name.

It’s not ‘Sheer-y’ and it doesn’t rhyme with ‘cheery.’

It is ‘Share-y’ and sounds like ‘cherry.’ Penguins public address announcer Ryan Mills got to the bottom of the mistake everyone — including him — has been making in this video posted to his Twitter account.

Sheary, a 25-year-old left winger from Massachusetts, has won two Stanley Cups with the team. He signed a three-year, $9 million contract in July. He entered the NHL in 2014 as an undrafted free agent.
