Former NHL team captain Chris Drury has announced Friday that he’s retiring from the game.
The ex-Ranger’s retirement news was released by the National Hockey League Players Association and read: “Chris Drury announced his retirement today from the National Hockey League following a 12-year career. After being drafted by the Quebec Nordiques with the 72nd pick in the 1994 N.H.L. Entry Draft, Drury went on to play 892 career N.H.L. games with four different teams (Colorado Avalanche, Calgary Flames, Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers).”
Drury, who turns 35 tomorrow, won the Hobey Baker Award in 1998 when he played college hockey for Boston University and also managed to snatch the Calder Trophy the following season for being NHL’s top rookie, making him the only player to win both awards.
