Defenseman Drewiske traded from Kings to Habs

CBSSports.com wire reports

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens obtained defenseman Davis Drewiske from the Los Angeles Kings for a fifth-round draft pick Tuesday.

The Canadiens were seeking a veteran to play on their third defense pair.

Drewiske had one goal and three assists in 20 games and was plus-3 for Los Angeles, but had been a healthy scratch of late. He averaged 14:27 of ice time per game.

He was signed as a free agent by Los Angeles in 2008 and has four goals and 18 assists in 126 career games.

Drewiske is earning a prorated $650,000 and can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.
