The 33-year-old is providing veteran leadership as he is the only member of the team who is both married and has children. "To be brought here to a foreign country where I’ve never been and get to put the USA jersey on for the first time in my career has been just incredible. Having that ‘C’ on the sweater means a lot, too. And, yes, I’m the only guy with kids. I have boy-girl twins that are three and a half," he said of Gunnar and Lennon. The Americans take on Russia in the semi-finals on Saturday with the winner taking on the winner of Canada and the Czech Republic for the gold Sunday. May 16 - 6:41 AM
