Davis Drewiske was back at practice on Saturday.

It is the first time the Habs' defenseman had particiapted in a practice this season as he had been recovering from shoulder surgery. Drewiske should be able to play in a game once the NHL resumes play in a few weeks. But it remains to be seen if that will be in Montreal or in the AHL.

Davis Drewiske skated on Friday for the third day in a row.

He is recovering from shoulder surgery and may soon be ready to return to practice. That said, Drewiske has no fantasy value.

Davis Drewiske has undergone shoulder surgery and he's expected to be sidelined for five to six months.

He was hurt back in training camp and was initially supposed to be out for four weeks. Drewiske played in nine games last season with Montreal after he was acquired from Los Angeles, but he earned a two-year extension from the team during the off-season.

Davis Drewiske sustained a shoulder injury during Wednesday's practice.

The ailment is projected to sideline him for the next four weeks. Drewiske got a two-year extension from the Canadiens in the off-season after he was acquired from Los Angeles in April. He will serve as a depth defender this year.

Montreal has inked defenseman Davis Drewiske to a two-year contract extension.

Financial terms were not disclosed. "We are happy to have come to an agreement with Davis on a two-year contract. He brings experience and most importantly depth to our group of defensemen," said GM Marc Bergevin. He was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings in April and skated in nine regular-season games with the Canadiens. In 29 appearances with Los Angeles and Montreal, Drewiske notched seven points and a plus-3 rating.

Davis Drewiske will play alongside Andrei Markov on Montreal's second pairing.

The new Canadiens defenseman will fill in for injured blueliner Alexei Emelin, who isn't expected to play again this season. Josh Gorges and P.K. Subban will likely get the majority of the ice time for the team as the top tandem.

Davis Drewiske made his Montreal debut Wednesday night.

He posted a hit and two blocked shots, with a minus-1 rating, during his 15:31 of ice time.

Los Angeles Kings trade Davis Drewiske to Montreal Canadiens for fifth-round draft pick.

Drewiske is a solid depth defenseman who was pushed out of the lineup by the recently acquired Robyn Regehr. He'll add some size and help fill out the Canadiens' third pairing on defense but is unlikely to rate in your fantasy league.

Defenseman Davis Drewiske scored his first goal of the season Monday in a 4-1 win over St. Louis.

The goal was the first power play goal by a Los Angeles defenseman this season. Drewiske has a goal and three points in 11 games this season with a plus-two rating so he could be taken off the waiver wire in very deep leagues.

Davis Drewiske's goal in Detroit on Thursday was his first of the season and halted a 130:35 minute Kings scoring drought.

Interim coach John Stevens, who by all accounts will be replaced by Darryl Sutter on Tuesday, has used the defensive minded Drewiske in both games since he took over behind the Kings bench as the defenseman was a healthy scratch in 24 of the Kings first 25 games. Drewiske rewarded him with the goal but do not expect much offensively from the former member of the University of Wisconsin player.

Davis Drewiske will draw into the Los Angeles lineup for only the second time this season.

Drewiske has been a healthy scratch in 24 of the Kings 25 games but will play alongside Matt Greene as Willie Mitchell is out of the Kings lineup after suffering an injury in his first shift on Thursday. Do not expect much from Drewiske as he will just try to be a steady defenseman on the Kings blueline.
