The coolest/oddest name in the NHL history
 
I suggest 3 candidates:

Metro Prystai - he gets my vote

Ilkka Sinisalo

Fred Sasakamoose



Feel free to suggest other names, but please avoid vulgarity (names like Dick don't count)

I use to laugh at Pekka Rautakallio when I was a kid.

Kloparren 03-06-2013 05:19 PM

I like the vintage sounding ones. Johnny Bower, Sprague Cleghorn, Babe Dye, Cyclone Taylor, etc

As a child playing with hockey cards, I remember being particularly amused by Bruce Shoebottom and Glen Featherstone. Mario Marois was another, since I read it as Mario Marios, essentially the same first and last name. But eventually I was corrected and that one lost its appeal.

Quackenbush is cool.

saskriders 03-06-2013 07:05 PM

Yep. Favourite all time goaltenders name. Sieve with a handle on him that only Johnny Cash could relate to. Boy Named Sue.

He only played 13 games for Dallas in the early 90s before heading back to Europe, but I always liked Jarkko Varvio. Could be biased from his spending so much time during those two seasons with the K-Wings...
