Scott Drevitch (born in Brookline, Massachusetts on 9 September 1965) is a retired American professional ice hockey and roller hockey defenseman.

Ice hockey[edit]

Following a collegiate career with the University of Maine Black Bears and the University of Lowell Riverhawks, Drevitch was signed by the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League as a free agent in 1988, and assigned to the Bruins' American Hockey League affiliate Maine Mariners. He played a full season for the Mariners, showing offensive flair he would enjoy throughout his playing days, but defensive deficiencies had him sent down to the East Coast Hockey League the following season.

Drevitch spent most of 18 seasons in the mid- to low-minor leagues. Most notably, he spent five seasons with the Tacoma Sabercats of the West Coast Hockey League, and was the career leader in games played, assists and scoring for the franchise; he also played three seasons for the Adirondack Frostbite of the United Hockey League, as well as playing for a number of teams in the AHL, the IHL, UHL, ECHL, and WCHL. He also played in Sweden, Austria, and the Netherlands.

Drevitch's dedication to the sport allowed him to continue playing professional hockey into 40's. His advanced age allowed rookie teammate Mark Hurtubise, from the 2005-06 Adirondack Frostbite's, to draw attention to the fact that Drevitch was as old has his father.[1]

His final season was in 2007 with the Elmira Jackals of the UHL; at the time of his retirement, he was the final player for the Albany Choppers, New Haven Nighthawks and Maine Mariners franchises active in pro hockey.

Roller hockey[edit]

Drevitch played five seasons of major league inline hockey with Roller Hockey International playing with the Atlanta Fire Ants (1994), Oklahoma Coyotes (1995 & 1996), Los Angeles Blades (1997) and San Jose Rhinos (1999).[2]

Drevitch currently runs a series of hockey camps in upstate New York and Cape Cod,[3] is a coach for the Bridgewater Bandits Tier II organization in the Eastern Junior Hockey League,[4] and coaches the Middleboro Sachems high school hockey team.[5]
