First Post...Please Help

First off, I really like these boards. I don't really have much time to post, but I love to read them and often do. Although I am somewhat new fan of the AHL, so I was hoping someone can help me out with the pronunciation of some players names

eg....is it Zach Parise (puh-reece, rhymes with peace) or puh-reez, or PAR-eece,???? Sorry, but I cannot tell just by reading, and I don't wanna butcher these guys names in a conversation. I hope some one call fill me in on the right way to say these players names:

Parise
Colaiacovo
Lehoux
Kostitsyn
Niitymaki
Ilya Bryzgalov (both names)
Suglubov
Balej
Koivu
Toivonen

Thanks in advance for any help on any of these names

Puh-ree-say

How about Brule?

Is it Gill-bert or Jill-bear and Broole or Bru-lay?

I'm no expert, but I'll give you a few that I've heard often:

Ilya Bryzgalov = Ill-Ya Briz-Ga-Lov

Balej = Ballet (like the type of dance)

Koivu = Coy-Voo

Kostitsyn = Cah-Steet-Sin
