Montreal Canadiens sign defenceman Davis Drewiske to two-year extension

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens signed defenceman Davis Drewiske to a two-year contract extension on Thursday.

He had three points in nine games for the Habs after being acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on April 2 in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick.

"We are happy to have come to an agreement with Davis on a two-year contract," Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said in a release. "He brings experience and most importantly depth to our group of defencemen."

The six-foot-two, 220-pound blue-liner had seven points (2-5) in 29 games with the Kings and Canadiens this past season while averaging just over 15 minutes of ice time per game.

Drewiske, a 28-year-old native of Hudson, Wis., has 25 points (5-20) in 135 career NHL regular-season games.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
