Step 1: Pick 1 or 2 friends who aren’t big NHL or hockey fans, sit them down and get ready to torture them.
Step 2: Write down 10-20 of these names on a set of cards and have your friend try to pronounce each name. Since each name is ranked 1-10 points will be awards corresponding to the difficulty (A name that is ranked at a 1 will give you one point where conversely a name ranked at 10 will give you 10 points).
You can move them around as needed, for example if you talk about Jonathan Toews a lot around your friends so that they know the pronunciation (even though it’s totally wack) you can move that down to a lower number.
