Glen Sather released the following statement on Drury’s retirement at the age of 35 and 12 seasons in the NHL:
“Throughout his career, Chris Drury was always a great competitor, a tremendous leader and teammate, and the heart and soul type of player that every team would love to have. His commitment, determination and will to win were apparent each and every day. Those characteristics will have a lasting impact on all those who were fortunate enough to learn from Chris over his 12 years in the National Hockey League.”
Say what you will about Glen Sather, but he summed it up perfectly.
