Ryan Suter will face his former Nashville teammates for the first time Tuesday.

Suter spent his entire career with Nashville before becoming an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He signed a 13-year contract with the Wild worth $98 million. Both he and Zach Parise decided they wanted to play together so they signed on with Minnesota which is Parise's home state and close by Suter's who is from Wisconsin. "It was a big thing for Zach and me that we decided to do this together," Suter said. "I think he's one of the most underrated players in the league. I always get into battles debating people. They say, 'Who do you think is the best?' I'd always say him, and I'd be given the hardest time for it.
