Kristopher "Kris" Draper (born May 24, 1971) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player and current special assistant to the general manager of the Detroit Red Wings, the team with which he played 17 seasons for during his 20-year National Hockey League (NHL) playing career.
Draper is a four-time winner of the Stanley Cup (all with Detroit), a Frank J. Selke Trophy winner and has scored over 100 goals in his NHL career with the Red Wings. Draper was a member of the famous "Grind Line" in Detroit, consisting of himself, Kirk Maltby and either Joe Kocur or Darren McCarty.
Draper grew up in West Hill, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto, where he played minor hockey for the Don Mills Flyers of the MTHL. After attending De La Salle College in Toronto, he was selected by the Ontario Hockey League (OHL)'s Windsor Spitfires in the fourth round of the 1988 OHL Priority Selection. Instead of reporting to Windsor, however, Draper elected to play for the Team Canada.
