LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have recalled defenseman Davis Drewiske
from the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Monday.
Drewiske, 24, has one goal and 11 points (1-10=11) in 46 games with the Monarchs during his rookie season and he’s tied for second on the team with a plus-4 rating. In addition, his 63 penalty minutes rank third overall on the team. Drewiske, a 6-2, 215-pound native of Hudson, Wisconsin, has not played in a regular season game with the Kings this season. He will wear jersey No. 44.
Last season, Drewiske finished his senior season at the University of Wisconsin by recording 21 points (5-16=21), 46 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating in 40 games while serving as captain of the team. He also tied for first among Badgers defensemen with five goals and his 21 points ranked second among club blue-liners. The Kings signed Drewiske as an unrestricted free agent on April 1, 2008, and he finished last season in Manchester, appearing in the Monarchs’ final five regular season games (5 GP, 0-0=0, 6 PIM) and four postseason games (4 GP, 0-1=1, 6 PIM).
