Feb. 28, 2017 Drouin assisted all three of Nikita Kucherov's goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning kept their fading playoff hopes alive with a 5-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night. That's the first three-point game for Drouin since Dec. 22. He also has six two-point games this season.
Feb. 23, 2017 Drouin (flu) is back in the lineup Monday. The winger is fourth on the Lightning with 36 points this season.
Feb. 8, 2017 Drouin scored in a second straight game and added an assist while finishing a plus-2 in Tampa Bay's 5-0 win over Los Angeles on Tuesday. The 21-year-old talent had just one assist over a five-game stretch prior to scoring in Saturday's shootout win over Anaheim, so it appears he's back on track.

Eight of those 16 points have come in power-play situations.
Jan. 7, 2017 Drouin had an assist Saturday. That gave him 17 points (eight goals, nine assists) in his past 16 games.
Dec. 24, 2016 Drouin is expected to play Wednesday night against Montreal despite leaving the Lightning's most recent game Friday with an undisclosed injury. It appears Tampa Bay avoided what could have been a big blow considering how good he's been when healthy. He has four goals and three assists in his past five games.
Dec. 23, 2016 Drouin had two late goals and the Lightning rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat the Blues 5-2 on Thursday night. Drouin had seven points in 17 games in October and November. In nine December games, he has seven goals and six assists.

The 21-year-old has a point in back-to-back games since returning from a suspected concussion that sidelined him over two weeks. Counting the postseason, Drouin has scored seven goals in his last 19 games and may be ready to become the player the Lightning envisioned when they chose him third overall in the 2013 draft.

May 17, 2016 Drouin had another goal in Monday's Game 2 loss to Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference finals. The 21-year-old also scored in the Lightning's win in Game 1. Drouin has been a difference-maker for a Tampa Bay team that's needed him to be one this postseason, as he's notched 10 points in his last nine games.
April 20, 2016 Drouin had three assists in Tuesday's Game 4 win over Detroit. It marked his first big game for the Lightning after the saga that led him to request a trade earlier this season.
March 23, 2016 Drouin is being disciplined in the minors once again, this time for missing a pre-practice team meeting. Syracuse Crunch general manager Julien BriseBois announced Drouin will not play in the American Hockey League team's game at Utica on Wednesday. BriseBois said it's a one-game punishment, and Drouin will return for the Crunch's next game against Albany on Friday. The Syracuse Post-Standard first reported Drouin being benched. The newspaper reported Drouin has apologized to the team, and said he missed the meeting because of an issue with his alarm clock. The third player selected in the 2013 draft had just rejoined the Crunch on March 7. He was suspended indefinitely by the Lightning for leaving the team before a game on Jan. 20.
Jan. 20, 2016 Though Drouin is out of exile after the Lightning lifted his suspension, the play-making forward's NHL career remains in limbo now that he's returned to playing in the American Hockey League. Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman called the possibility "very realistic" of Drouin being recalled from the Syracuse Crunch before the end of this season.
Jan. 3, 2016 The agent for Tampa Bay forward Jonathan Drouin says the third overall pick in the 2013 NHL draft has requested a trade from the Lightning. Agent Allan Walsh said in a statement released Sunday - one day after Drouin was assigned to Syracuse of the American Hockey League - that he formally made the request on behalf of the 20-year-old left wing in November. Drouin was a healthy scratch for most of Tampa Bay's run to last year's Stanley Cup Final. He has been slowed by injuries this season, scoring two goals in 19 games.
Dec. 14, 2015 Drouin played for the first time since Dec. 10 in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers. The Tampa Bay forward had a lower-body injury.
Nov. 16, 2015 Drouin had a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win against Anaheim, his return from a six-game absence. Drouin, who had an undisclosed ailment, ended a nine-game point drought.
Oct. 29, 2015 Drouin returned from a lower-body injury Saturday, but did not produce a point in a 1-0 loss at Minnesota. He's expected to have a nice season, so it may be safe to get him back in your lineup.
Oct. 25, 2014 Drouin scored the first goal of his NHL career Friday night in a 4-2 win over Winnipeg. The 19-year-old was drafted third overall by Tampa Bay in the 2013 NHL Draft. He has one goal and two assists in three games this season.
Sept. 23, 2014 Drouin has been sent to the minors. Drouin was out due to a right thumb injury.

2018-08-08 analysis Drouin had his struggles as a center, particularly on faceoffs, but he finished the season strong, which buoys his confidence heading into the 2018-19 season. "The last 25, 30 games, I was having fun playing center," Drouin said. "I was enjoying it. I was winning more faceoffs and that's important because if you win the faceoff, you have the puck and it's easier to play." The 23-year-old forward w
2018-08-08 update Drouin is preparing to line up at center this season, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.
2018-04-01 analysis Drouin is putting together a nice run as the season winds down. He has points (two goals, four assists) in five consecutive games and 10 points over the last 10. It's not enough to salvage a disappointing season for the Quebec native, who is at minus-27 and ranks 146th in faceoff wins (42.4%) among centers that have played at least 50 games. The Habs felt Drouin could be successful transitioning f
2018-04-01 update Drouin scored a power-play goal -- a third straight game with a power-play point -- along with two shots on net and a two-minute minor penalty in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.
2018-03-22 analysis Drouin's first-period goal ended a team-wide scoreless streak that lasted 166-plus minutes. It was just his third goal over the last 16 games. Aside from a few threats, Montreal's lineup does not scare anyone. Opponents can choke down on guys like Drouin, Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk and not feel exposed to the Jacob De La Roses, Logan Shaws and Daniel Carrs of the world.
2018-03-22 update Drouin scored a goal on two shots, added a hit and finished minus-1 in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.
2018-03-14 analysis It was the first goal in five games for Drouin, who dangled the puck on a breakaway, then roofed a backhander over the committed Sergei Bobrovsky. It was a bit of offensive flair Montreal had hoped to see more of after it traded for the 22-year-old forward. He recognized an opportunity after a blocked shot, took off up ice and put himself in position to finish off a pass from Paul Byron. The goal The 23-year-old remains inconsistent, although skating on a roster as threadbare as Montreal's isn't generally conducive to big fantasy numbers. Drouin does have two goals and seven points over his last 10 games, but his minus-24 rating on the season makes him a risky play even in a favorable matchup.
2018-03-14 update Drouin scored a goal on two shots and finished plus-2 over 17:05 of ice time in Monday's 5-2 loss to Columbus. Drouin picked up two assists, both on the power play, while adding two shots and a blocked shot in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Stars.

2018-03-01 analysis His second-period tally proved to be the game winner. Drouin struggled through February, finishing the month with only three goals and six points in 13 games, but with Max Pacioretty still a Hab after the trade deadline and skating alongside him on the top line, the 22-year-old could be in position to pick up his scoring pace over the season's final weeks.

2018-02-18 analysis Drouin's disappointing season gets lost amidst the many disappointments experienced by Les Habitants this season. Montreal acquired him to play center and it hasn't worked out as planned. He has just nine goals and 29 points while winning 41 percent of his draws over 53 games. If you don't win faceoffs, you're playing without the puck and minimizing scoring opportunities. The Canadiens will re-con
2018-02-18 update Drouin scored a third-period, power-play goal and won 67 percent of his faceoffs in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights.
2018-02-11 analysis He got the puck past Pekka Rinne with just 76 seconds left in regulation to earn the Habs a point, but Drouin came up short in his second try at playing hero in the shootout. The 22-year-old has only eight goals and 28 points in 50 games on the season, falling far short of last season's pace with the Lightning, but he has been showing some life since New Year's, producing three goals and 10 points
2018-02-11 update Drouin scored a goal on four shots while adding two blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.
2018-02-04 analysis Drouin was tested for fractures Saturday but the results came back negative, so he'll battle through the pain Sunday. The 22-year-old pivot has two goals and eight points in 13 games since the calendar flip, but he's been help pointless in the last three matchups. Drouin is expected to slot back onto the power play as well, where he'll have a favorable matchup with the Habs, who rank 23rd in the l
2018-02-04 update Drouin (ribs) will play Sunday against the Senators, Arpon Basu of The Athletic Montreal reports.

2018-02-03 analysis Drouin only managed 6:08 of ice time in the contest, with his team up 4-2 at the second intermission. This is the last thing the Habs need, as they lost three straight games heading into Saturday's action and require nothing short of a miracle to wind up in the postseason. Montreal will host the Senators as soon as Sunday, so expect a quick turnaround as far as reevaluating Drouin goes. Drouin got in the way of teammate Karl Alzner's slap shot, and it required a trip to the hospital. While it's obviously a good sign that he didn't fracture any bones, the Canadiens won't be rushing to any conclusions about his availability for Sunday's home contest against the Senators. However, more information should be revealed once the team has a chance to examine him further.
2018-02-03 update Drouin left Saturday's game against the Ducks in the period after getting hit in the ribs by a slap shot from allied defenseman Karl Alzner, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

2018-01-24 analysis The Avs entered with a 10-game winning streak, so this was a solid showing from Drouin and the Habs. Additionally, Colorado's young superstar Nathan MacKinnon and Drouin were long-time teammates on the Halifax Mooseheads, and the pair led the Moose all the way to a 2013 Memorial Cup Championship before being selected first and third overall in the 2013 NHL draft, respectively. The added incentive
2018-01-24 update Drouin scored a goal and added two assists (one on the power play) during Tuesday's 4-2 win over Colorado.
2018-01-20 analysis Drouin is back at center after being moved to wing for a period-and-a-half Wednesday night in Boston. Friday's performance was his best effort at the dot in a long while -- he won two important defensive zone faceoffs in the final minute -- but we're not ready to crown him a legitimate center yet. There have been growing pains in his transition from wing, and it has impacted Drouin's offense. With
2018-01-20 update Drouin had an assist, two shots on net, one hit and won 10 of 16 faceoffs over 16:54 of ice time in Friday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.
2018-01-16 analysis The goal was a huge monkey off Drouin's back. The 22-year-old forward had gone 13 straight games, dating back to Nov. 29, without scoring and had just three in the last 32. He's registered points in three straight contests, which may quell some of creeping buyer's remorse feeling in Montreal. His painful transition to center has been a running theme of late, and there's no sign that head coach Cla After 39 games, Canadiens management has finally acknowledged what was plain to see: Drouin is not yet ready to be a No. 1 center in the NHL. Head coach Claude Julien views De La Rose as the better defender when the puck is in Montreal's zone, which can free up Drouin (six goals, 15 assists) to work with Galchenyuk on the offensive end. This trio will take the ice Wednesday night against Boston.
2018-01-16 update Drouin had a goal, four shots on net, and three hits in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Islanders. Drouin practiced at right wing on a line with Alex Galchenyuk at left wing and Jacob De La Rose at center, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

2018-01-08 analysis Drouin broke out as a 21-year-old last season, posting 21 goals and 53 points while skating as a winger with Steven Stamkos. A year later, he's enduring growing pains in a transition to center. Drouin's faceoff percentage fell to 40.33 percent after losing seven of nine draws in Sunday's 5-2 win over Detroit and is minus-17. He never meshed with captain Max Pacioretty and is now skating with Alex
2018-01-08 update Drouin, who has played center since he was acquired from Tampa Bay, would be "a better option" on the wing, per Montreal general manager Marc Bergivin, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. "In a perfect world, if we had that No. 1 centre, that guy who can make plays, a high-end centre, (Drouin would) probably be on the wing," said the GM.
2017-12-29 analysis Drouin has won just 41.2 percent of his faceoffs this season, his first as a full-time center. One wonders if the adjustment to the pivot has come at the expense of his offense. Since returning from a lower-body injury, Drouin has just one assist in eight games. With scoring at a premium for the league's 26th-ranked offense (2.6 goals-per-game), the Habs need more from Drouin.
2017-12-29 update Drouin had three shots, one hit and one blocked shot while winning just 2-of-7 draws in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.
2017-12-10 analysis The top-line center returned to the active lineup Saturday after missing four games with a lower-body injury and a flu. Whether it was him coming off an absence, or his lack of impact, or a combination of both, Drouin's ice time was three minutes less than his season average (17:39).
2017-12-10 update Drouin had two hits and a blocked shot in 14:16 of ice time in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Oilers. He failed to get a shot on net and won only three of 12 faceoffs.
2017-12-09 analysis Drouin, who has missed four games, had planned on returning from a lower-body injury Thursday against Calgary, but woke up Wednesday with a flu and was unavailable to play against the Flames.

2017-12-09 update Drouin (illness) will be back in the lineup Saturday night against the Oilers, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
2017-12-08 analysis Drouin appears set to resume his spot in the lineup after not only overcoming his illness, but also a lower-body malady that had previously sidelined him for a trio of matchups. The Montreal native began the season as the top-line, but a lack of production from both him and others has led to a lineup shuffle that could see Drouin in a bottom-six role.
