The Atlanta Flames.
Nobody- the Original 6.
The NHL was formed in 1917 and played its first season in 1917/18. The winner of the Stanley Cup was the Toronto team simply known as the Arenas. Two things should be noted here: 1. The Cup was not solely an NHL trophy at that time.The NHL champions, the Toronto team, actually had to win against a team from Vancouver which was not a member of the NHL. 2. The Montreal Canadiens actually won the Cup in 1916 before the NHL was founded so they are not considered to be the first NHL team to win the Cup.
Seattle Metropolitans in 1917... EDIT: were never in the NHL. The first American NHL team entered in 1924, the Boston Bruins.

Indiana does not have an NHL team.
