Future Bright For Big Buff

from Nancy Macdonald of MacLeans,

The future is bound to only get brighter: there’s Raleigh and the All-Star Game most immediately, perhaps an Olympic appearance in Sochi, if the league allows players to go to Russia. “The more responsibility you give Dustin, the more he responds,” says Dudley. “So now he’s an important guy. And he feels there’s a certain responsibility involved in being a star player.” Last summer, Byfuglien brought the Stanley Cup home to Roseau, where he addressed some of those loyal parents. “When I left home, I left with a purpose,” he said in a speech at Memorial Arena. “And every time I went home, I wanted to come home with a better story.” Well, right now, there’s no one in the league with a better story than his.

He was raised by his mom Cheryl, who’s of Norwegian descent (hence the name, pronounced “Bye-foog-lee-in” in the homeland)...”

What logical reason could there be to pronounce it the way it’s pronounced here?

I also want to point out that he averages 0:07 of shorthanded icetime a game.
