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.

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.

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...
