Chris Drury Jeff Gorton John Davidson Fired

Chris Drury will be President and GM of the Rangers

5:32PM: The Rangers have confirmed that Drury has been promoted to President and GM and that Glen Sather will assist during the transition.

4:48 PM: Darren Dreger said on TSN 1050 that Drury will be President and GM on a permanent basis.

4:13PM: Elliotte Friedman said on the NHL Network, “Chris Drury will be the President and GM of the Rangers. I’m not 100% sure on the President title and what the exact wording is, but he will be the GM of the Rangers. He’s had numerous opportunities to go elsewhere, Minnesota wanted to talk to him, Buffalo, NJ and he always said no and I think that in the long-term he wanted to eventually be the GM and the Rangers and he will be. I’m sure they will add some staff around him at some point in time, but he’s going to be the President and GM of the team.”
