Modano is the lone Michigan-born-and-bred representative on the list. His 561 goals and 1,374 points are the highest in history among American-born players. A former No. 1 overall pick of the Minnesota North Stars in 1988, Modano went on to the face of the Stars’ franchise for 21 seasons before playing one final season at home with the Wings.
