Happy 4th of July Beer Leaguers! In honour of Independence Day we wanted to pick the best American-born NHLers and create an All-American team.

This is based on last season, so older players that have had good careers, but are a little slower now, didn’t make the cut.

We also took into account higher-level analytics such as possession numbers, Corsi, Fenwick, etc. because we want the best team on the ice possible, not just the most points.

It’s also about balance too, having good scorers on the top line, and some more defensive, grinder players at the bottom of the forward group.

So without further ado, scroll down to see our All-American NHL Team. The best of the best!
