What's so great/funny about that name? Congrats for getting the name 100 % right, though (quite rare!).

Ruotsalainen is conveniently Finnish for 'Swedish' or 'Swede', by the way.

I like Sprague Cleghorn. Still sounds like a cattle breed to me.

this may only be fun for swedes but P.K Subban is completely outrageous.

PK is short in swedish for politically correct when meant as a negative (politiskt korrekt) and subban is a direct translation of *****. I don´t know if that word will be ***** or not but it starts with B and rhymes with Mitch.

so a direct translation in swedish is "the politically correct *****".

at least i smile every time I see his name.

PK Subban is also good because in the video game series Earthbound the kid says "PK" (short for psycho-kinetic) before his attacks (which he also says the name of as he does them). I can just imagine Martin yelling PK SUBBAN! as he launches him onto the ice.

Some that I haven't seen mentioned.

Antti Laaksonen
Darius Kasparaitis
Raitis Ivanans
Bubba Berenzweig
Carlo Colaiacovo
Bates Battaglia

I don't think anything beats Zarley Zalapski though.
