You mean that the NHL has teams from the USA. The nation in question in the NHL was originally Canada.

I'm afraid the NHL's Canadian origin is on record. While the "Original Six" are certainly the backbone of the NHL's tradition, that recognition only began in 1942. The first few years of the NHL (1917+) featured only Canadian teams (such as the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Arenas [now Maple Leafs], Quebec Bulldogs/Hamilton Tigers and the first incarnation of the Ottawa Senators). The Boston Bruins were the first US-based franchise to join in 1924.
