Canadiens obtain defenceman Drewiske from Kings for fifth-round pick

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens, seeking depth on defence, obtained defenceman Davis Drewiske from the Los Angeles Kings for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick Tuesday.

Drewiske, 28, had one goal and three assists in 20 games for Los Angeles but had been a healthy scratch of late. He has four goals and 18 assists in 126 career NHL games.

The six-foot-two 220-pound native of Hudson, Wisc., was a member of the Kings' Stanley Cup team last spring but saw no action in the playoffs.

He is earning a pro-rated US$650,000 and can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
