USA Today: Psychology prof quoted on hockey player's success

Release Date: May 10, 2007

Mark Seery, assistant professor of psychology, is quoted in an article in USA Today on the ability of Buffalo Sabres center Chris Drury to score under pressure. "What sets him apart from other players isn't that he's just a gifted player physically," he said. "It's his ability to perform in the clutch. I expect that Chris Drury looks at (a pressure situation) as a challenge rather than a threat. He has experience performing successfully in those type of situations. There's evidence out there that shows that kind of personal experience helps develop and toughen a person." Go to article.
