Two former Rangers will be members of the US Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2015: center Chris Drury and defenseman Mathieu Schneider. Drury spent four seasons in New York before retiring, putting up a pair of 20-goal, 50-point seasons before injuries and age slowed him down. In his four years, Drury put up a line of 62-89-151 in 264 games while serving as captain of the team for three of those seasons.
Drury’s signing during the 2007 offseason, along with Scott Gomez, was thought to solidify the center position, but never seemed to fit that billing. His signing was deemed a failure, which I think is a bit harsh. Age caught up to him, but he had a pair of productive seasons in New York.
Schneider played two seasons with the Rangers, putting up a pair of 10-goal, 30-point years. In his 155 games, Schneider finished with a line of 20-44-64.
