No team with a European captain has ever won the Stanley Cup, and no team with an American captain had won until fairly recently when the Dallas Stars, captained by Darian Hatcher won in 1999.

Update: Nicklas Lidstrom was the captain of the 2007-2008 Stanley Cup winning Detroit Red Wings.

Update: Dustin Brown (Los Angeles Kings) was the second American to accomplish this in 2012 & 2014.
