This morning I made my usual stop at the Complex Sportif Bell arena in Brossard Quebec to check out what was happening. Even if the Montreal Canadiens are in Philadelphia the injured ones stayed behind for therapy or to start skating. This morning marked the return of new comer Davis Drewiske. Drewiske was traded to the Habs last season at trade deadline for a fifth round pick....

The Montreal Canadiens have signed Davis Drewiske to a two year contract extension; the defensive defenseman will be earning 625k in the 2013-2014 season, and 650k in the 2014-2015 season.
Drewiske was acquired by Marc Bergevin in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2013. Drewiske played nine games, notching...
So first the Canadiens signed Francis Bouillon, but now they have inked Davis Drewiske to a two year deal. I guess Montreal is looking to stack the healthy scratch list. Drewiske’s deal will see him make $625K next season, and $650K in 2014-15. This means he will carry a cap hit of $.6375M. Undrafted, Drewiske started [...]
The Kings made some news before tonight’s game, as they announced they had traded Davis Drewiske to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Montreal’s fifth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Drewiske, a 28-year-old left-handed shooting defenseman from Hudson, Wisconsin, signed with the Kings as an undrafted free agent from the University of Wisconsin [...]

He was signed as a...

The Montreal Canadiens announced today that they had acquired defenseman Davis Drewiske from the Los Angeles Kings in return for a fifth round draft pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Undrafted, Drewiske started his junior career with Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL before joining the University of Wisconsin in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. Drewiske captained...
Alec Martinez just breathed a sign of relief.
Davis Drewiske brings his Stanley Cup ring to a team that hasn't won a Stanley Cup since... they beat the Kings. Maybe he'll be THEIR good luck charm.
Solid #6 - nothing fancy - will get his 11-12 minutes.
Does this signal another deal for the Kings?
I'm sure Lombardi doesn't want to...
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have acquired a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for defenseman Davis Drewiske, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Drewiske, 28, has played in 20 games with the Kings this season, recording four points (1-3=4), 14 penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating. The 6-2, 220...
LA Kings defenseman Davis Drewiske was hit square in the face by the puck from point blank range on a pass from Anaheim Ducks winger Bobby Ryan behind the net during the third period of Saturday night's NHL game at the Honda Center.
Drewiske, who does not wear a visor, left the ice with blood on his face, but only missed three minutes of game time before returning to the ice...
Many are saying "this is an outrage!" and they would be right.
Others are simply praying this was a misprint on the Kings part, since only 52 names are allowed on the cup and 25 games played enforcer Kevin Westgarth is also included.
One could certainly argue that Davis Drewiske was a healthy scratch for 72 games and was on the roster the entire season as was Kevin...
