Hall of Fame hattrick for Drury

For Chris Drury, the list of honors just keeps growing. Twenty years after pitching Trumbull, Conn., to the Little League World Series championship, the former two-time first team All-American and Terrier captain will be inducted into the Little League Hall of Fame during the upcoming World Series in Williamsport.

A member of the BU Athletics Hall of Fame since 2003, Drury became the 13th Terrier in the Beanpot Hall of Fame following his induction this past February. He was a member of the first class (1998) to win four Beanpot titles, and, in BU’s 2-1 OT win against Harvard in the 1998 title game, scored BU’s first goal and assisted on the game-winner.

Currently the captain of the N.Y. Rangers, Drury is the only player to win both the Hobey Baker Award (1998) and the NHL's Calder Trophy as top rookie (1999).

This week, Drury and former Terrier defenseman Ryan Whitney are attending U.S. Olympic orientation camp in Woodridge, Ill. Roster.

►2003-04 Terrier captain Mark Mullen (mentioned just a few days ago in our report on 2011 recruit Cason Hohman) has left his position as assistant coach for the USHL Cedar Rapids Roughriders to become a scout for the Los Angeles Kings. On the Kings staff, he’ll join: former Terrier Steve Greeley, a pro scout; amateur scout Bob Crocker, a longtime BU assistant coach under Jack Kelley; and former BU All-American goalie, Jack Ferreira, who is special assistant to the general manager.
