Top Ten American Born Hockey Players

The Top Ten

1 Mike Modano

A born leader who put the team first, a reason why he led the Stars to a Stanley Cup in 99. The is a natural scorer who was a great defender as well. His durability and consistancy over a long and prosperous career makes him the greatest American born player, and even one of the better players, ever to take the ice in the NHL. Although he is now a Red Wing, Modano will always be the face of the Stars franchise. We miss you Mike, you'll always be a Star in my eyes.

Leading points scorer of any american player.

Mike Modano is AWESOME and made the olympic team!

Best American hockey player ever - Ishtar

7 Mike Richter

He's THE reason why Team U.S.A. had a prayer at gold in the 2012 Olympic hockey tournament. Not to mention the save (s) during 1994 Stanley Cup finals. Perennially underrated during his career b/c he played in probably the NHL's golden age of goaltenders (i.E., Hasek, Roy, Belfour)

8 Ryan Miller

he's the only reason Buffalo can even compete -

9 Keith Tkachuk
10 Phil Housley

Phenominal vision/skating/puck handling, very exciting to watch,
