Who was the Best Ever American in the NHL? hockeytown1 10/04/2011
I think Chris Chelios was the best ever American-born player in the NHL. Chelios grew up in Chicago, Illinois and played 2 years for the University of Wisconsin–Madison before joining the Montreal Canadiens.

He played 26 years. He was a 3-time Norris Trophy winner as best defenceman. He won a Stanley Cup with Montreal, got to the finals when he moved to the Chicago Blackhawks and won 2 more Stanley Cups after being traded to the Red Wings. He played for the U. S. in the Olympic Games 4 times and was captain in 1998 and 2006.   reply

My choice for best ever American-born player in the NHL is another defenceman, Brian Leetch. He was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and moved to Connecticut as an infant, eventually enrolling in Boston College.
brbrDuring his 18-year career, Brian Leetch was a two-time Norris Trophy winner as the NHL's best defenceman and was the first American-born winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as Playoff MVP for his brilliant play during the New York Rangers' run to the 1994 Stanley Cup Championship. He is one of only five NHL defensemen to score 100 points in a season with his 102-point campaign in 1991–92.   reply

Joe Mullen might have been best ever American-born player in the NHL. He grew up in New York and played at Boston College. Mullen was the first the American born NHL player to score 500 goals and the first American to reach 1,000 total career points. He played played 17 seasons and was on 3 Stanley Cup winning teams.   reply
