The Montreal Canadiens acquired defenseman David Drewiske from the LA Kings in exchange for a fifth round pick.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Drewiske’s been a healthy scratch for nearly a month, making him expendable. He’s got decent size and plays a physical game, providing additional grit to the Canadiens defense corps. He’s also in the final year of his contract and eligible for UFA status. Could be a playoff rental heading into the playoffs.
