NHL Team: Los Angeles Kings.

Quick should take over as the starting goaltender for the United States, wrestling that title away from Ryan Miller. All hockey fans across the world saw just how dominant Quick can be in his Stanley Cup run. see more on Jonathan Quick
Zach Parise is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Best U.S. Hockey Players

NHL Team: Minnesota Wild.

With Jaime Langenbrunner not expected to be on the 2014 Olympic Team, Parise should be one of the favorites to captain the United States. The Minnesota native has played many games for the U.S., and recently captained the Devils to the Stanley Cup. see more on Zach Parise
Phil Kessel is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Best U.S. Hockey Players

Kessel had a fantastic year last year recording 82 points and not missing a single game. Kessel seems older but he is still only 24 years of age. see more on Phil Kessel

NHL Team: Minnesota Wild.

Suter should once again anchor the defense for the United States. Like Parise, he should also be a favorite for captain. Expect him to be a major contributor in the special teams units as well. see more on Ryan Suter
