We've tolerated the butchering of Maxim Ouellet and Michel Ouellet, but since Xavier Ouellet seems to be displaying the potential of being a big time NHL player, people have got to start getting it right.

Even TSN has his name misspelled on their WJC Statistics page.
They have less difficulties spelling weird Swedish, Finnish or Russian names...

Oue = Weh
Llet= Lett

It's a very simple name to pronounce as an anglophone.

It's Lüd-man, with an "ü" sound.

Lood is not any closer than Lid.
