Parise, Suter Invited To Attend Olympic Camp

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Minnesota fans have something to cheer about Tuesday morning as a couple of Minnesota Wild players could soon become Olympians.

Two of the Wild’s top players have been invited to an orientation camp to potentially represent the U.S.A. at the 2014 Olympic games in Russia. Left winger Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter will be heading to camp next month.

Both were on the silver medal winning U.S. team in Vancouver in 2010. Another Minnesota native, Nick Leddy from Eden Prairie who now plays defense for the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, was also invited.

Minnesota is well represented in the camp as 14 of the 48 players invited are from the “State of Hockey.”
