The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Davis Drewiske from the Los Angeles Kings, according to Darren Dreger of TSN on Tuesday afternoon.
In exchange for Drewiske, the Kings have received a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.
The left-handed defenseman is playing in the final year of a three-year, $1.8 million contract that carries an annual average value of $616,667 against the salary cap. He will become an unrestricted free agent this July.
Drewiske has recorded a goal and three assists for four points in 20 games this season. In addition, he averaged 14:27 of ice-time, which included an average of 3:01 on the penalty kill. However, he hasn't played since March 12 and has been scratched in the Kings' last 10 games.
