Here's what fellow teammate Ryan Suter had to say about Zach Parise being named team captain for the American squad.
He’s very capable of being the captain, too," Parise said about Suter. "Ryan does a really good job here, leading the D and leading this team. We communicate well and we’re on the same page about a lot of things. It’s nice to have someone who thinks the game the same way and pulls the rope the same way you do."I think it's an awesome honor to have two Minnesota Wild players as part of the leadership for team USA. Also, this s a strong statement for US College Hockey, as two of the three captains played for division I college hockey teams during their amateur hockey days.
