KINGS SIGN PROSPECT DAVIS DREWISKE TO A MULTI-YEAR CONTRACT

Drewiske, 23, had 21 points (5-16=21), 46 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating with the Wisconsin Badgers (WCHA) this past season while appearing in all 40 games for the team. The 6-1, 215-pound native of Hudson, Wisconsin, who served as the Badgers’ captain, also tied for the team lead in goals by a defenseman (5) and finished second on the team in points scored by a defenseman (21).
In four seasons with the Badgers (2004-08), Drewiske never finished with a plus/minus rating of lower than plus-6 and his goal production went up every year. During his Badgers career, he appeared in 152 total games, scored 41 points (12-29=41), logged a plus-28 rating and recorded 136 penalty minutes.
Drewiske skated with the Des Moines Buccaneers (USHL) during the 2003-04 season and that year he led his team and tied for 13th in the league in scoring by a defenseman with 23 points (4-19=23). Prior to his stint with the Buccaneers, Drewiske skated with Hudson High School where he was a member of the school’s 2001 WIAA State Championship team. He finished his high school career as a three-time all-state player, and he was named Wisconsin Mr. Hockey and team MVP as a senior.
