Twin fun

Parise said the blessing of being injured is that he has gotten to be by the side of his wife, Alisha, and his newborn twins, Emelia and Jaxson, during the first week of their lives.

They were born a minute apart Jan. 8.

“It’s been the greatest thing ever. I couldn’t be happier,” Parise said. “It’s 10 times better than the way people describe it. Everyone says it’s the greatest thing in the world. You hear them, but you don’t really hear them until you go through it and see it and have them at home, it’s incredible.”

Captain gone

Cloquet’s Jamie Langenbrunner, a two-time Stanley Cup-winning forward who captained the United States to a silver medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, retired Wednesday after 16 seasons.

“When I was a younger guy [with New Jersey], he was so good to me and had me over his house for dinner and things like that with his family,” Parise said.

“I sat next to him in the locker room. He talked to me a lot about being a professional and about playing the game the right way. I had my best years career-wise playing with him, so I owe him a lot.”
