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'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
