Pledging allegiance

With 11 American-born players on their active roster, the New Jersey Devils certainly pay homage to the USA Hockey program. Within those 11 are five with strong ties to Team USA who signed our work-in-progress jersey yesterday:

General manager Lou Lamoriello, who served as Team USA's general manager in the 1998 Winter Olympics.

Right winger Brian Gionta, who has played in the Olympics, World Championships and world Junior Championships.

Center Jamie Langenbrunner, who has played for the United States in the Olympics, World Cup of Hockey and the world Junior Championships.

Center Zach Parise, who played in the World Championships and the World Junior Championships.

Left winger Brian Rolston, who has represented the United States at the Olympics (winning silver in 2002), World Cup of Hockey and World Junior Championships.
