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.”
