It's LOO-cheech, SAINT-loo-EE

If you want to learn how to pronounce any NHL player's name, from Boston's Milan Lucic to Tampa Bay's Martin St. Louis, check out the player profiles at team Web sites. Logos on link to teams.

Some cards provide a pronunciation guide on the back.

I wouldn't rely on those Upper Deck provided ones. Dustin Byfuglien's last name is listed as bigh-FEWG-lehn, when it's actually BUFF-lin (apparently the y, f, and g are all silent and the u moves before the f; kind of like how Brett Favre's name is said with the r and v switched).

They also once listed Marty Turco's name as being pronounced like Steve Yzerman.
