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.
We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
