RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Drewiske is a solid, stay-at-home defenseman who got stuck behind a trio of veteran blueliners (Matt Greene, Rob Scuderi and Willie Mitchell) and only saw action in nine games last year for the Kings. He's in for a similar role again this year in the last year of his contract and figures to be the seventh defenseman on most nights.
Drewiske was limited to just 38 games due to a shoulder injury last year but wasn't a regular part of the Kings' blue line even when healthy. He has 16 points in 97 games at the NHL level and just 51 PIMs so there's very little short-term upside here from a fantasy perspective. He'll be back as the team's sixth or seventh blueliner again this time around.
Drewiske's a nice enough depth defensemen for the Kings but he offers very little from a fantasy perspective. He's put up a grand total of 11 points in 59 games at the NHL level across two seasons and you can expect a similar role and output this season.
Drewiske split time between the AHL and NHL, appearing in 17 games for the Kings. He's a solid two-way blueliner, though his offensive skills haven't shown up on the scoresheet on a consistent basis. He'll be a nice complement to Drew Doughty, Jack Johnson, Thomas Hickey and Colten Tuebert for many years to come but doesn't figure to impact too many fantasy squads.
