US Hockey Hall of Fame call's Drury's number

Chris Drury, a two-time first-team All-American, Hobey Baker Award winner in 1998, a member of BU’s 1995 national championship team, and the Terriers’ all-time goal-scoring leader (113), has been selected for induction into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.  The Trumbull, Connecticut, native, who finished his four seasons as third highest scorer in BU history, became the only Hobey Baker Award winner to capture the NHL’s Calder Trophy as top rookie in 1998-99 with Colorado and later helped the Avalanche win the 2001 Staney Cup, contributing 11 post-season goals.

Drury played 12 NHL seasons with the Avs, Calgary, Buffalo and the Rangers, scoring 615 points in 892 games. He also won silver medals for Team USA in the 2002 and 2010 Olympic games.

He was inducted into the BU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2003.  Among Drury’s many clutch moments as a Terrier was his overtime game-winner against Denver in the 1997 NCAA regionals.

Calgary draft pick Brandon Hickey sat down with  to discuss his standout freshman year at BU and his goals for his sophomore season. 

"I’m going back to Boston University and I want to have a great year and win a national championship with my team."

BU's 2015 recruit class took a hit today when it was reported that admissions difficulties will prevent Maxim Letunov from suiting up with the Terriers. Twitter reports suggest that some issues with the high school classes the Moscow native took in Russia several years ago proved insurmountable. Letunov, who scored 64 points for USHL Youngstown last season, is reportedly seeking admission to Connecticut and hopes to play this season. 

A second-round draft pick by St. Louis in 2014, Letunov's rights were traded to Phoenix this past Spring.

BU's recruit class now includes forwards Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, Jordan Greenway, Robert Carpenter and Ryan Cloonan, defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Shane Switzer and goalie Max Prawdzik
