In case you didn’t hear it, Chris Drury retired today.
Forget for a moment his incredible history for Trumbull National Little League and pitching the last Connecticut team to the Little League World Series championship. I know this is likely what he’ll be remembered forever for in this area, but Drury is known for more than that.
Drury had a great career, with 255 goals, 615 points and a Stanley Cup in 2001 with the Avalanche.
But where would he fall on an all-Connecticut team?
I posted this question on Twitter, and got a few responses. Pick your all-Connecticut hockey team. Three forwards (LW, C, RW), two defensemen and a goalie.
LW- Max Pacioretty (New Canaan)
C- Craig Janney (Enfield)
RW- Drury (Trumbull)
D- Brian Leetch (Cheshire)
D- Ron Hainsey (Bolton)
G- Jonathan Quick (Milford)
What do you think? Who would be on your team?
