“He’s not a bring-you-out-of-your-seat kind of player, but if you really just watch him, he just does a lot of things right,” Muller said. “Our first impression when I got here was, ‘Holy geez, this kid at his age knows how to play the game the right way,’ and then you knew he’s just going to grow into it. He’s one of those real pros. He’s here early, he’s wants to play, he asks questions, so you knew right away he was going to be get better.”

Faulk is such an up-and-comer, he is on the radar to represent the United States at the Winter Olympics. Some surmise he could be paired with the Wild’s Ryan Suter in Sochi.

“I think he’s got a really good chance,” Parise said. “I think if he weren’t in a smaller market like Carolina, we’d hear a lot more about him. I think he’s going to be a star defenseman in this league.”
