Chuck and I may have had a class with Chris Drury at BU our freshman year. No one remembers for sure. We obviously learned a lot in “Rocks for Jocks” or whatever we were studying, and that knowledge comes in handy today when identifying the sediment strata of the landscape in pictures of Jonathan Toews golfing.
Drury signed a five-year, $35.25 million with the Rangers on July 1, 2007. According to CapGeek.com, Drury will count approximately $3.716 million against the 2011-12 salary cap, and about $1.667 million in 2012-13. [NHL.com]
Chris battled injury last year, including that pesky broken finger that really made NYR Fan Steph mad. He’s 34, has played 12 seasons and tallied 255 goals + 360 assists. He was part of the ’01 Avs team that I loved so much, along with Ray Borque. That was a fun year.
And thanks to Wikipedia for doing all this work:
- Only player in hockey history to win both the Hobey Baker Memorial Award and Calder Memorial Trophy.
- Holds the record for most goals in Boston University Men’s Ice Hockey history with 113.
- Only Boston University ice hockey player with at least 100 goals and 100 assists.
