Bulldogs Player of the Week: Davis Drewiske

Despite not being known for his offensive prowess, Davis Drewiske the veteran defenseman has put together a career season. With Nathan Beaulieu, Jarred Tinordi, and Greg Pateryn called up and Magnus Nygren injured, the Bulldogs turned to Drewiske for offense. The former LA King responded by grabbing four points, all assists in three games this week.

In a 4-1 win Drewiske grabbed a pair of assists, first setting up Nick Sorkin's seventh goal of the year before assisting on Jake Dowell's empty net goal. On Friday against Grand Rapids he would grab primary assists on Drayson Bowman's ninth goal and Morgan Ellis's first goal of the year. Drewiske now sits seventh in scoring for Hamilton and leads all defensemen in points.
