New York Rangers captain Chris Drury underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee Friday and will be sidelined for six weeks. The team said the procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Feldman at the NYU Langone Medical Center's Hospital for Joint Diseases in Manhattan.
Drury has missed 33 games to injury this season, including a 29-game absence from Oct. 18 to Dec. 12 due to a fractured finger sustained vs. Toronto on Oct. 15. He had skated in 22 consecutive games before missing the last two with the knee injury. The 13-year veteran has registered 254 goals and 360 assists for 614 points, along with 468 penalty minutes in 891 career regular-season games -- but has no goals and just 4 assists in 23 games this season.
After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
