Rangers Promote Chris Drury to Associate GM

The former Rangers center has been with the Front Office for six years now

The New York Rangers announced this morning that Chris Drury was promoted to the Associate General Manager position.

Previously, Drury was the Assistant General Manager and the Director of Player Development for the Rangers while serving as the General Manager of the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers’ AHL affiliate. As the Associate General Manager, Drury will continue in his role as Hartford GM and assist General Manager Jeff Gorton in negotiating trades and free agent contracts.

This is noteworthy as it was recently reported that Drury was considered a top candidate for the currently vacant Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager position but he wasn’t interested in leaving New York.
