Chris Drury is a Connecticut guy through and through and today a long and incredibly successful career came to an end as the former New York Rangers captain called it a career and retired.

From winning the Little League World Series, to Bean Pot and a College National Championship to the Olympics and of course the Stanley Cup, Chris Drury has always been and always will be a winner.

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.

For certain Drury will be inducted into the US Hockey Hall of Fame, that’s a no-brainer…the debate now becomes, is he an NHL HOF’er?
