    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.

    I also posted this in the AHL forum, but since most of these guys are prospects, I figured it was vaild here too. thanks again

    ...which unfortunately is an awful resource for finding out how to pronounce names. Ambiguous, inaccurate, and often just plain wrong.

    It's too bad there's really nothing else out there though.
