Devils' Jamie Langenbrunner to Captain U.S. Olympic Team Jamie Langenbrunner of the New Jersey Devils will be the captain of the U.S. hockey team at next month's Olympics.

USA Hockey also said Monday the alternate captains will be Devils teammate Zach Parise, Nashville's Ryan Suter, Los Angeles' Dustin Brown and Detroit defenseman Brian Rafalski.

Langenbrunner, the Devils captain, is one of three U.S. hockey players with Olympic experience. Rafalski is a three-time Olympian along with New York Rangers captain Chris Drury.
