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

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
