“There’s no better feeling to get all this gear with your nation’s flag on it and to be able to represent your colors,” Wisniewski said.

The defenseman said just thinking about it gives him chills.

“Especially when you got to walk in the Opening Ceremonies and seeing 242 other American athletes all dressed the exact same, it was just such an honor and a pleasure,” he said.
