Chris Drury

Chris Drury is one of the up and coming stars of Team U.S.A. A speedy centre with a knack for scoring key goals Drury has quickly become known as a big game player. International experience runs in his family, his brother Ted Drury was a member of the U.S. Olympic Hockey Team in 1992 and 1994.

Drury was a member of the 2002 U.S. Olympic Team that earned a silver medal after a hard fought loss to Team Canada in the gold medal game. Prior to the Olympics, Drury was a member of the 1995-96 U.S. World Junior team that finished fifth. Drury also competed for his country in the World Championships, playing in 1997, 1998 and winning a bronze medal in 2004. Drury competed in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey for the defending champions, but the Americans were unable to get past the semi-finals.

Drury was drafted 72nd overall in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by the Quebec Nordiques. In 1998-99, his rookie season with the Colorado Avalanche, Drury scored 20 goals and 24 assists for 40 points. It was enough of a debut to earn him the Calder Memorial Trophy as NHL rookie of the year and a place on the NHL All-Rookie Team. Drury's career continued to blossom in Colorado and he was a key member of their 2001 Stanley Cup Championship team, scoring 11 goals in 23 playoff games. Drury was traded from Colorado to the Calgary Flames prior to the 2002-03 season, and after just one season there dealt to the Buffalo Sabres prior to the 2003-04 season.
