On the heels of Robin Lehner’s trophy mistake, the NHL messed up again confusing New York Islanders defenseman, Johnny Boychuk for Jordan Eberle.

It’s been a rough week for the New York Islanders. Just a couple of days ago, Robin Lehner’s Masterton Trophy came in with the wrong team inscribed on it. Now, even the NHL Twitter account is screwing up.

@NHL tweeted out a video of Mike Green and Jordan Eberle skating. There was only one problem, they thought it was Johnny Boychuk. Boychuk jumped in on the tweet with a good sense of humor about the situation.

Not only did they think Jordan Eberle was Johnny Boychuk, they also spelled his last name “Boychuck”.  Oh boy.

Not a good look for the NHL. Islander fans time and time again say that their team is disrespected and it’s hard for me to sit here and say otherwise after this happens just three days after messing up Robin Lehner’s trophy.

I understand it was probably a social media intern who is just looking for college credit who made the mistake but it still can’t happen on a main account like that. That’s what editors are for. The tweet was since taken down but was never replaced with the correct players tagged in the video.

Well, at least the Islanders can ride the “nobody believes in us” mantra again. The New York Islanders, forever the underdog.
