Three more Devils are headed to the 2010 Olympic Games. Team USA has announced that forwards Jamie Langenbrunner and Zach Parise, and defenseman Paul Martin will don the red, white and blue at the Vancouver Games in February.

The announcement brought the number of the Devils' Olympic participants to seven. Martin Brodeur and Jacques Lemaire (Canada), Patrik Elias (Czech Republic), and Johnny Oduya (Sweden) have already had their tickets punched for the Olympic tournament, which gets underway on Feb. 16.

It will be the second Olympic tournament for Langenbrunner, who saw action in three games for Team USA at the 1998 Nagano Games.

Langenbrunner's 32 points (10g-22a) rank second among Devils. The captain leads the club with two shorthanded tallies and is currently riding a three-game points streak (2g-1a). He had his best season in 2008-09, when he registered 29 goals, 40 assists for 69 points.

The 34-year-old native of Cloquet, Minn., has represented the United States in two World Junior championships (1994,1995), and the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

Parise, 25, leads all Devils with 42 points (17g-25a), and ranks second in points among American-born players (Patrick Kane, 45). He won gold with Team USA at the 2004 World Juniors, when he had a tournament-best six goals and five assists, and is now set to make his Olympic debut.

The Minneapolis native has appeared twice for the U.S. at the World Championships, including 2008, when he recorded five goals and three assists in seven games. He led all Devils last year with a career-high 45 goals, 94 points.

Martin, 28, is the Devils' top defenseman, and has been named to the U.S. Olympic team for a second time. The Minnesota-born blueliner was tapped for Team USA's taxi squad at the 2006 Torino Games, but did not play. One of the premier American defensemen in hockey, Martin has represented the U.S. at the World Juniors (2001), the 2004 World Cup, and two World Championships, including 2008, when he notched a goal and seven assists in seven games.

Martin led Devils defensemen last season with 33 points (5g-28a), but has missed all but nine games this season due to an arm injury suffered at Pittsburgh on Oct. 24.

Devils' President/CEO/GM Lou Lamoriello announced last month that Martin had undergone minor surgery after experiencing a setback with his recovery, though he didn't expect that to impact Martin's Olympic availability.

Also named to the team were forwards David Backes, Dustin Brown, Ryan Callahan, Chris Drury, Patrick Kane, Ryan Kesler, Phil Kessel, Ryan Malone, Joe Pavelski, Bobby Ryan, Paul Stastny; defensemen Erik Johnson, Jack Johnson, Mike Komisarek, Brooks Orpik, Brian Rafalski, Ryan Suter; and goaltenders Ryan Miller, Jonathan Quick, and Tim Thomas.
