The Chicago Blackhawks have had a number of American born players throughout their team history, however, a few stand out as the best in the franchise.
It takes a team to win a championship or just for an individual player to have a great career. The players on this list all had great players around them, and a little bit of luck to get the Blackhawks where they needed to be.
Most of the players on this list missed out on a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks, however, a good amount of them found the Cup after leaving the Blackhawks. With new great American players like Alex DeBrincat and Brandon Saad on the Blackhawks, it shows that these old Blackhawks players had a great legacy on the game of hockey in Chicago.
I do not think we would be able to do a list like this for the greatest Canadian born hockey players. There are just so many Canadians in our team’s history, however, when it comes to the U.S. there is a smaller pool of players. So let’s countdown the top five greatest American born Blackhawks of all time!
