If it makes you feel any better, according to Calgary Flames prospect Lucas Feuk, even Swedes struggle to pronounce his last name. For the record it rhymes with “yolk,” not with any English curse words.
In a lot of ways, Feuk is a fairly typical pick from Brad Treliving’s amateur scouting regime. He’s listed at six feet and 185 pounds, so he’s not a Herculean presence but like fellow Flames prospect Martin Pospisil he has a high motor and a physical edge to his game. Feuk had 43 points and 84 penalty minutes in 43 games with Sodertalje SK in the Swedish SuperElit junior circuit – Treliving dubbed him “competitive” at the draft.
