While this was his third full season with the Los Angeles Kings, it’s hard to figure where Davis Drewiske will go from here in terms of his future with the silver-and-black. It’s also tough to call 2011-12 a full season for the 27-year-old. After all, after playing in 42 and 38 games respectively over the last two years, Drewiske played in just nine games this past season, none of which were in the playoffs.
In those nine games, Drewiske, a native of Hudson, Wisconsin, scored two goals while recording 11 shots and logging an average of 12:33 of ice time per game.
Even when the Kings dealt Jack Johnson to Columbus, there still wasn’t much room for Drewiske. Johnson’s trade made space for Slava Voynov while the 6’2, 222-pounder remained the odd man out, watching his team from the press box.
It’s uncertain to me whether or not Davis Drewiske will even be back in Los Angeles next season. While he was a member of the club, he never really left his mark with the Kings. Of course, that’s not so much a fault of his as it’s more of a testament to just how deep Los Angeles’ defensive core is.
