Top Ten American Born Hockey Players
The Top Ten
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.
I live in Dallas and my first NHL game -was Madanos first Hatrick plus one! What a wonder to watch! Love this guy.
Mike Modano is AWESOME and made the olympic team!
Leading points scorer of any american player.
Most dynamic American born player to play the game. Scored 148 points in the 92-93 season for the Buffalo Sabres. Part of the famous Miracle on Ice gold medal team in 1980.
Pat Lafontaine WAS NOT part of the 1980 gold medal team
Yeah this is true
Better den Mike Madano
"3 time Norris Trophy Winner" Been playing for over 20 years and still going!!
Chelios is the best number ONE
great offensive defenseman that was a quality defenseman from his rookie year, through the end of his career. 9 time all star, 2 time calder trophy winner, and the only american born player to win the conn smythe.
Should be No. ! Sorry Mike and Pat..
Mvp of 94 finals
As he goes for point 1000...with a few years left in him, multiple Olympic teams, various MVPs, and already 3 rings on his fingers...what more justification is needed
Only American to win the scoring title, pure scoring offensive player. Barring injury will go down as the best American to play.
He will end up as the leading scorer in USA history from the NHL.
Kaner is the bomb!
Jeremy Roenick is best players, I know he is lucky every game and I have good tee to supporting all players like this teespring.com/bornlucky
Jeremy is speed player is USA, have good bodylifting and style play.
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)
he's the only reason Buffalo can even compete
Phenominal vision/skating/puck handling, very exciting to watch,
#11? Are you drunk? He should be top 5
Because he is a beast and go USA
First American to reach 1000 points
Outstanding goalie, first straight out of high school to NHL, Vezina, 2 cups, 18 year career. Many memories
1st American born player to 50 goals 3 times w/ the Flyers
He was born in Belleville Ontario... He was a dual citizen as his mother was an American.
He's the American version of Wayne gretzky
He can dangle and defend😍
4 goals in a goals in a NHL debut, CRAZY!
