PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan)- Penguins defenseman Simon Després joined 93-7 The Fan’s Eric Hagman after practice on Tuesday to chat about the current state of the team, and to look forward to Thursday’s Penguins vs. Flyers showdown in Philadelphia.

Following the interview, The Fan Morning Show’s Gregg Giannotti made an inquiry as to the proper pronunciation of Despres’ name, and the answer blew everyone away.

According to a Penguins official, the correct pronunciation is actually “SIGH-man duh-PRAY.”
