Drewiske's new deal

Here’s what Davis Drewiske had to say today about his new three-year, $1.8-million contract extension. Drewiske has a team-best plus-6 rating, one goal, two assists and 10 penalty minutes in 10 games.

DREWISKE: “Yeah, I’m excited. I think it’s a great organization, and it’s going to be a great place to be in the years to come here. I think we’re going to win a lot of games and I’m excited about being here.”

Question: What does it mean for you, in terms of security?

DREWISKE: “For me, it’s a good thing to have. I’m just going to try to continue to improve and fill whatever role the team needs me to play.”

Question: Have they given you feedback, in terms of your play? Do you think this is an indication of them being happy with you?

DREWISKE: “I would think so. I just think I’ll continue to play solid and try not to get scored on, play good defense and be simple and effective, play that role the best I can.”

Question: Is the comfort level higher, when you start a season here?

DREWISKE: “I think so. That was a good experience I had last year, getting to know everybody and getting to play with a lot of different guys. That gave me a lot of confidence coming into camp. I don’t think I had the greatest training camp, but I’ve settled in here since the start of the season, just trying to be reliable and simple.”
