Drury, 39, retired in 2011. He played the final four of his 12 NHL seasons with the Rangers, and was their captain for his final three seasons.
"I'm pretty excited to have Chris come back to the Rangers," general manager Jeff Gorton said to the NHL. “It was an opportunity to bring someone into the organization, a former Ranger, that can add so much."
Per the NHL, Drury will be responsible for working with the hockey operations department to assist in prospect development on and off the ice. He will work closely with the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, and will assist in overseeing and evaluating all players at the collegiate level.
"We're trying to add people in some key positions that have had different experiences … that can give us a fresh look,” Gorton said. "It's pretty obvious what he can do and how energetic he was for an opportunity to come back with the Rangers and work here."Read more... Join the Conversation...
