USA National Team releases orientation roster

New, comments

Zach Parise and Ryan Suter will compete for spots

Martin Rose

The USA national team released their USA Olympic camp invitees today, and the Wild have two very obvious names on the list.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who watches hockey at all that winger Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter are on the list, and pretty much locks to make the final roster.

One notable Wild player missing from the invitee list? Jason Pominville.

Parise and Suter will join the rest of this list at USA orientation camp August 26th and 27th in Virginia.
