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

Offseason[edit]

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.
