The 1926–27 New York Americans season was the 2nd season of the New York Americans. The club added coach Newsy Lalonde and defenceman Red Dutton. The club improved its play to finish 4th in the Canadian Division but again did not qualify for the playoffs.

Off-season[edit | edit source]

Gorman decided to drop the coaching duties and he hired Newsy Lalonde from the former Saskatoon Sheiks of the Western Hockey League (WHL). As part of the dispersal of the WHL's players, Gorman signed defenceman Red Dutton of the Calgary Tigers, however Dutton ended up with the Montreal Maroons. Dutton would later be traded to the Americans.

Regular Season[edit | edit source]

During the Americans season opener, coach Newsy Lalonde played his last NHL game and then retired for good.

Normie Himes played the first of nine consecutive seasons for the Americans. He'd lead the team in scoring five times and retire having played 402 games, all for the franchise. However, he'd only play in the post season once.

Bobby Connors played his first NHL game during the Americans 3-2 over the Ottawa Senators on February 26, 1927.
