Davis Drewiske To Get Name Engraved On Stanley Cup

Drewiske

It's finally official, former Wisconsin defenseman Davis Drewiske will get his name on Stanley Cup.

The former Badger captain was a part of the remarkable run last season by the Los Angeles Kings. Despite finishing 8th in the Western Conference, the Kings went on to defeat the New Jersey Devils in six games to clinch the cup.

Normally players must play in at least 41 regular season games, or in at least one game during the Stalney Cup Finals to get their name engraved on the cup. Unfortunately for Drewiske, he didn't see much time on the ice during the championship run. The Hudson, WI native played in just nine games during the regular season, and didn't play in the playoffs.

But Drewiske played a large enough role to get his name engraved on the holy grail of sports trophies. According to a report in the L.A. Times on Friday night, Drewiske is one of twenty-four players on the Kings roster to have their name engraved.

In nine games with the Kings last season, Drewiske recorded two goals while playing solid, two-way hockey. That reputation is in large part why the Kings signed him to a three-year, one-way contract that started with the 2010 season.

The Kings had confidence in the former Badger blue-liner last season, but had a rather remarkable stretch of good luck in the health department. That played a large part in the Kings ability to go on a run to win the cup last season.

Drewiske was already able to host the Stanley Cup in his hometown over the summer. After picking the cup up at the airport, Drewiske brought the cup to the home of paralyzed hockey player Jack Jablonski who was injured in a hockey game last season. Drewiske also brought the cup to show off at his local hometown hockey arena.

If the NHL and the Owners come to their senses and there is hockey this season, Drewiske will be back with the Kings, looking for a repeat celebration.
