Ryan Suter and his father Bob have a very special relationship. For much of his hockey-playing life, Ryan was coached by his dad until he went away to Culver Military Academy as a sophomore in high school. Bob Suter also blazed a trail to the Olympics for Ryan as a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team that completed the Miracle on Ice, a 4-3 win over the Soviet Union en route to the gold medal.

That's why the fact that Bob Suter will not be going to Sochi to watch his son play in his second Olympics is such a surprise. Concerns over safety in Sochi have escalated and that's why Ryan Suter says his family members, including his wife and children will not be coming to watch the games. It was at Ryan's request that his family stay away.

In an interview with CBS News, Bob Suter addressed why he won't be attending.

"Everything is security, security. You know, it's just too bad that it takes away from the athletics and the sports and stuff," he said. "It just makes it maybe not as fun that you have to worry nowadays."

Ryan Suter echoed his father's sentiments.

"It's definitely a concern. I look forward to going to the Olympics and being part of it. You hear all these stories about different things; it's definitely a concern," Ryan Suter said.

Ryan Suter's Minnesota Wild teammate Zach Parise has also told his family which also includes a famous hockey-playing father, former NHLer J.P. Parise, to stay home.
