Thanks to Auston Matthews, Jack Eichel, Johnny Gaudreau, Brock Boeser and Dylan Larkin among others, the NHL boasts the best collection of young American players since the days of Mike Modano, Jeremy Roenick, Keith Tkachuk, Mike Richter and Bill Guerin. But make no mistake: Patrick Kane, 30, is still the NHL’s top American. With 12 goals and 35 points in an active 16-game scoring streak, he’s playing like the NHL MVP.
