I don't think we call it anything, 'Ö' is a letter on its own in Swedish aswell as 'Ä' and 'Å'. Pronounciation is about right though.
Easily put, Ö = eu. Å = au. Ä = ae.
The middle part is pronounced like your every day NHL commentator would pronounce it. 'Ström' is a separate word if you like, 'st' in it is pronounced the same way as the english word 'Stream'. A difference though is that 'lid' is actually pronounced 'leed' in Swedish.
You have to ask the NHL about the last part, he does on his National sweater.
