No, it's not, actually.  That's the Americanized way of saying it.  His grandfather clarified the proper pronunciation, which the announcers are using.  They discussed it during one of the preliminary round games.

 

Edit-- WAY TO GO USA!!!!

Well, I'm a Finn, and none of the 100+ Pietilas I know use that pronounciation.  We almost all use the Americanized way of saying our names.
