Rangers promote Drury to assistant GM--UPDATED

Former Terrier co-captain, Hobey Baker Award winner and two-time All-American Chris Drury has been promoted to assistant general manager by the New York Rangers.  The Trumbull, Conn., native, who spent 12 seasons in the NHL including four with the Rangers, scoring 615 regular-season points, rejoined the Broadway Blues a year ago as director of player development. His role in helping New York sign last year’s Hobey Baker Award winner, free-agent Jimmy Vesey of Harvard, was widely reported.
As a freshman, Drury was part of BU’s 1995 national championship squad. He would help the Terriers reach two more Frozen Fours, earning All-American honors as a junior and again as a senior. He remains BU’s all-time goal-scoring leader (113) and is third on the all-time points list. report report
