Pronunciation help: Juraj Mikus

I have no idea how to pronounce his first name. Can anyone of Slovakian persuasion lend a hand.

I don't know the exact pronunciation, but Chicoutimi's broadcast team pronounce it You-raye Mee-Kous (or Youraille Mikous in french)

Indeed. Yur-eye Meek-Oush.

At least that's what Timmins says.

On another note, Mikhail Grabovski is pronounced:

Mee - hi - eel Grabovski

I can just imagine Sean Connery (the SNL character in the skit) trying to pronounce Andrej Mezsaros... or Tomas Plakanec.

Thanks. That's pretty definitive. And I agree with the interview. He does have good pass, and a great skate too!

He'd better hit the gym, though. He's got no upper body muscle at all.
