Drury represented the United States at the 2002 and 2006 Olympic Games. He is one of only three players on the U.S. roster (Rafalski in 2002 and 2006, Langerbrunner in 1998) with Olympic experience and one of two with an Olympic medal, having won a silver medal in 2002.
He recorded six points and won a bronze medal as a member of the 2004 World Championship team, on which he played with fellow 2010 Olympians Dustin Brown and Ryan Malone.
Drury’s older brother Ted was a two-time Olympian, participating in 1992 and 1994.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
