Continued: Captain America: Wild's Parise picked to wear the 'C' in Sochi

“I sat next to him in the locker room while he was our captain [in New Jersey], and while he was our captain in Vancouver,” Parise said. “Not an overly vocal guy in the locker room, but you know he’s going to play hard the right way in every game, and he leads by example.

“As I get older in the league, you kind of remember those kinds of things. What was unique about Jamie was that he was able to lead the same way when the team was winning and the team was losing, which is a hard thing.”

The Americans open the tournament Feb. 13 against Slovakia.

“We have two practices and maybe a morning skate, so it’ll go quick,” Suter said. “We’ve got to come together fast. The team that does will have the best chance.”
