1998 Winner - CHRIS DRURY of Boston University


Drury’s Hobey Baker campaign included 28 goals and 29 assists, averaging 1.5 points per game. The senior captain was named First Team All-America for the second consecutive season, the Hockey East Player of the Year for the second consecutive season, the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Year, and was named to the All-Hockey East First Team for the third consecutive season. The all-time leading goal scorer at BU with 116, the Trumbull, Connecticut native was the first Terrier to capture the Hobey Baker Award. Drury went from college right to the NHL where he spent his entire career with four teams. He began with the team that drafted him, the Colorado Avalanche, and was named the 1999 NHL Rookie of the Year. After a four-year stay, Drury played one season in Calgary, three seasons in Buffalo, and completed his fourth season with the New York Rangers in 2010-11. That season's play was limited due to injury, and he retired in August of 2011. In 12 NHL seasons, Drury scored 20 or more goals on nine occasions and played in a total of 1,027 NHL games, recording 704 total points.
