Worst name you have seen in hockey

I went to a Rimouski-Chicoutimi game in the Q yesterday. There is a guy on Rimouski that has the worst name to pronounce. I challenge anyone to find a worst name then that...

Worst name in hockey: any name that Pierre Houde pronounces. He get's them all wrong.

And he gets most of the european names right + his english is also very good. Whoever says Pierre Houde gets most of the names wrong, I suspect, doesn't listen much to hockey.

True. And at least he doesn't pronounce Lapierre's name "Laperriere" like they do on ESPN.

Thank god we don't have Mats Sundin playing for us or else all we'd hear is: MATS SOOONDIN!

Hockey names need to be cool.

Like Bossy, Gretzky, Tretiak, Lafontaine, Béliveau, Yzerman, Shanahan!!


Jaromir Jagr... that just flows. It rocks!! Zigmund Palfy!! Alexei Kovalev.. like..you know the guy was born to play hockey with a name like that!


those are cool names.

My favourite is Jay Pandolfo. It sounds like something Frank Zappa would have made up.

I always thought the name Tlusty sounded funny - like a 4 year old missing their front teeth trying to pronounce clown Krusty

What im about to mention is not really a weird name, but every time I hear Setoguchi's name... I remember that scene in Blade trinity, where Blade rescues thwe baby from Dracula's arms, and says "goochy-goochy-goo"
