One had to really be paying attention to have noticed, but it happened. When the Detroit Red Wings used their third-round pick on goalie Jake Paterson at the NHL draft in 2012, the montage of video highlights that were played on the scoreboard in Pittsburgh were actually of the London Knights' Jake Patterson.

Easy enough mistake; one had to feel for the video editor who was probably pleased as punch for tracking down game footage of Jake Patterson, who appeared in only six games for London in 2011-12 while one-T Jake Paterson played in 54 regular- and post-season contests for Saginaw. Ontario Hockey League fans have learned to sort out The Two Jakes, but it might be a little confusing since the Wings are bringing both goalies to their summer development camp.

From Ryan Pyette (@RyanatLFPress):

It's happened previously. From 2007-08 through part of the '09-10 season, the Plymouth Whalers deployed two forwards named Tyler Brown. The eldest was Tyler G. and the younger was Tyler J. Brown.

Anyway, in an effort to be helpful, here's a quick tale of the Ts. Best of luck to each of the Jakes.
