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.
I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
