(WQOW) -- The defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings trade Hudson native and former Wisconsin Badger Davis Drewiske to the Montreal Canadiens.
Drewiske goes to Montreal in exchange for that team's fifth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.
This past July, Drewiske told News 18 Sports Director Bob Bradovich that he'd be open to a trade if it made sense for all parties concerned.
"If I get moved somewhere else, then that might be a good thing for me personally," said Drewiske, "and if I'm there, great. If I"m somewhere else, than I'll be ready for whatever opportunity I get."
Drewiske has one goal and three assists this season with the Kings. His career totals in five seasons in the NHL with Los Angeles include four goals, 18 assists, and 67 penalty minutes in 126 games. Drewiske joins a Canadiens team that's currently second in the NHL's Eastern Division standings.
