The Minnesota Wild sent four players to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Forward Nino Niederreiter has shared some photos on twitter after the group landed and began to be accustomed to the Olympic Village.

Forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter will compete for Team USA. Forward Mikael Granlund will play for Finland and Niederreiter will represent Switzerland.

Pool play starts on Wednesday when Switzerland plays Latvia. Finland and the United States play a day later. Each country plays three games before the playoffs begin on Feb. 18.

Niederreiter will continue to share pictures on his Twitter account throughout the Olympics.
