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.

I live in Dallas and my first NHL game -was Madanos first Hatrick plus one! What a wonder to watch! Love this guy.

Leading points scorer of any american player.

2 Pat Lafontaine

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.

Yeah this is true

3 Chris Chelios
4 Brian Leetch

Should be No. ! Sorry Mike and Pat..

Mvp of 94 finals

5 Patrick Kane Patrick Timothy Kane II (born November 19, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey right winger for the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Only American to win the scoring title, pure scoring offensive player. Barring injury will go down as the best American to play.

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

He will end up as the leading scorer in USA history from the NHL.

6 Jeremy Roenick

Jeremy is speed player is USA, have good bodylifting and style play.

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)

10 Phil Housley

#11? Are you drunk? He should be top 5
