On Wednesday, Mike Modano—arguably the best American born player ever—announced he will retire. This announcement marks the end of not only a great career but a legendary era.
Although Modano was not part of the 1980 Miracle on Ice, he was a part of some other international USA hockey moments, especially the 1996 World Cup.
In his time, Modano was part of a golden age for American hockey, playing with names like Chelios, Hull and Richter to name a few. This presentation highlights those players providing a lineup for the ages.
Without further adieu, allow me to present the all-time American-born hockey team!
