Position: Forward

Olympic experience: Second (2010)

Twitter handle: none

Bio: Another member of Team USA’s leadership group, Parise will play a major role in the Americans’ drive to improve upon the silver medal they won in 2010. In his Olympic debut at the Vancouver Games, he served as an alternate captain and was the tournament’s third-leading scorer with four goals and four assists. Parise scored a memorable goal in the gold medal game against Canada, tying the score with 24 seconds left to send the game to overtime. He has led the Wild in scoring for much of this season but has missed time recently because of a broken foot.


Elk River/Gophers • men’s hockey

Age: 32

Height/weight: 6-1, 200

Position: Defenseman

Olympic experience: First

Twitter handle: none

Bio: It’s been a long, long journey to the Winter Games for Martin, an All-America pick and NCAA champion with the Gophers. He waited in the wings in 2006, when he was tapped as a replacement for any U.S. defensemen injured before the Turin Olympics, but he was not called upon. Martin made the team for the 2010 Vancouver Games, but a broken arm prevented him from playing. He recently was sidelined because of a broken leg but expects to be healthy for the Olympics; in Sochi, he is likely to pair up with Brooks Orpik, his defensive partner in Pittsburgh.
