Jonathan Drouin News
Montreal Canadiens left wing Jonathan Drouin (upper body) will remain unavailable until the All-Star Game. With the All-Star Weekend still over two weeks away, Drouin is set to miss at least six more contests. He was already sidelined for Tuesday's win over Winnipeg. It's a bitter blow for the former third-overall pick, as Drouin had just started to log some meaningful minutes and managed to make a good impact with a run of five points in five games. The 27-year-old is on 12 points overall for the campaign with 28 games played.
Montreal Canadiens left wing Jonathan Drouin handed out assists for fun on Thursday against Nashville and ended up with three of them in a 4-3 win. He logged an even-strength assist on a Kirby Dach goal in the first period and picked up a pair of power-play helpers on Cole Caufield's goals. It was a very productive evening for Drouin in only 10:26 of ice time. The former third-overall pick has fallen to the bottom six this season and has failed to hit the 11-minute mark three times in five January appearances. As a very skillful player, Drouin can still put up points, but it's not a good situation for him in Montreal. The 27-year-old has 11 assists in total this season but hasn't scored in 26 games.
Montreal Canadiens left wing Jonathan Drouin will come out of the lineup Tuesday with an upper-body injury. The 27-year-old is getting sidelined just as he had picked up some form with assists in back-to-back games. It's not been a pretty year so far for Drouin, with him boasting only four points in 12 appearances. Fellow winger Joel Armia (upper body) will also sit Tuesday, while Juraj Slafkovsky is available again after serving a two-game suspension. He will be back on the fourth line, but with Drouin out, Slafkovsky is slated to skate with the first power-play unit.
Montreal Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin will make his season debut on Saturday against Washington after missing the team's first two games as a healthy scratch. He is expected to skate on the fourth line, replacing Rem Pitlick in the lineup. Drouin can be a productive player, but he's had awful luck with injuries, and with the youth movement in full swing in Montreal, it looks like the former third-overall pick will struggle to get playing time for the Canadiens this season. He has started the final season of a six-year deal that has him carrying a $5.5 million cap hit, so having Drouin sitting in the press box is a bad situation for everybody involved.
