Tuesday May 16th, 2017

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Rangers have named former player Chris Drury the general manager of the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

Drury played the final four of his 12 NHL seasons with the Rangers before retiring in 2011. He rejoined the organization in September 2015 as director of player development, then was promoted to assistant GM a year later. He will keep his position with the Rangers in addition to the new role with the Wolf Pack announced Tuesday.

Rangers senior vice president and assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld is relinquishing his duties as GM of the Wolf Pack and will focus solely on his duties in New York.
