Jonathan Drouin has been consistently excellent this preseason.
He is poised for a breakout season as he is playing alongside Steven Stamkos and seems much more confident on the ice showing off all his talents. Young players have to learn to be consistent over an 82-game schedule and that will be a challenge for Drouin, but based on talent and opportunity alone he will be a very sought after commodity on draft day.

Jonathan Drouin scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The game was played in front of a raucous crowd in Johnstown, PA. Brian Boyle scored the Lightning's first goal to tie the game at one in the opening frame and Drouin then tied the game at two in the second. Drouin could be in line for a huge year if he plays on a line with Steve Stamkos. The Lightning open the season at home against Philadelphia on October 8th.

Jonathan Drouin said he's more confident in himself and his abilities coming into this season.

"I'm definitely more confident in myself, more relaxed out there, more myself than last year," said Drouin"I know the system, know the other teams, and that definitely helps in my second year." The sophomore picked up a goal and an assist in Saturday's preseason loss to the Dallas Stars. Although Lightning captain Steve Stamkos didn't play in this game, the two have been practicing on the same line. If Drouin continues to play on that line during the regular season, he could be one of the best breakout performers of the year.

Jonathan Drouin got a goal and an assist in the Lightning’s 6-3 preseason loss to the Stars on Saturday.

After an inconsistent first season in the NHL when he tallied four goals and 28 assists, Drouin could burst onto the scene this year. The third-overall pick in the 2013 draft had 108 points in 46 games in his final year in the QMJHL. Slater Koekkoek and Vladislav Namestnikov picked up the other goals. Ray Emery gave up six goals on 26 shots.

Jonathan Drouin has been practicing and playing exclusively with Steven Stamkos.

That is what Drouin owners have been waiting to hear since training camp of last season. The two are beginning to feel more comfortable with each other and are definitely developing some chemistry. If Drouin can hold on to this job, the sky is the limit for him. Either Ryan Callahan or Nikita Kucherov will complete the line.

Jonathan Drouin scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators.

Drouin's goal at the 1:01 mark of the third period gave the Lightning a 2-0 lead in the contest, but they were unable to hang on. The 20-year-old scored four goals and 32 points in 70 games last season. Those numbers are pretty impressive for a teenager who averaged just 13:14 of ice time during the regular season. He probably still won't be one of the top dogs up front this year, but he should see some more playing time. It wouldn't be a surprise if he scored between 40-50 points in 2015-16.His arrow is definitely pointing up.

Jonathan Drouin skated alongside Steven Stamkos and Ryan Callahan in the Lightning's first practice of training camp.

Drouin is going to get an opportunity to play a bigger role this season after averaging 13:14 minutes per game in 2014-15. "I'm very excited," Drouin said. "I know how to handle a lot of the stuff better, and am definitely more ready." He's got a ton of offensive upside, so at the very least he's worth keeping a close eye on in standard leagues.
Sep 18 - 5:43 PM

Although Jonathan Drouin played in only six playoff games this post-season, the Lightning are still very high on the talented forward.

Bolts GM Steve Yzerman is looking for bigger and better things from the young playmaker this upcoming season. "[Drouin] is absolutely a big part of the future. He's a tremendously talented young player, a great young man, all throughout the year he's handled this situation extremely well." If there are any owners in your hockey pool who have soured on Drouin, make the call and get him on the cheap as he could have a breakout season in 2015-16.

Jonathan Drouin will dress in Game 6 Monday night versus the Chicago Blackhawks.

With their backs against the wall, the Lightning will elect to dress the rookie forward in favor of Nikita Nesterov and go with the standard alignment of 12 forwards and six defensemen. Drouin has dressed in five games this postseason, including two during the Cup Finals, and has not scored a point while registering a minus six rating. He will play on the fourth line with Brandon Morrow and Brian Boyle.

Jonathan Drouin saw time with Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat in Game 5 after Nikita Kucerhov was injured.

If Kucherov can't play Monday night then Drouin is likely to get a much larger role than he has had so far in the 2015 playoffs. In five appearances, he has no points and a minus-6 rating, but he feels his speed will help him play with Johnson and Palat. "You look at the way they play, they play fast-paced," Drouin said. "I don't want to slow them down. I think the way I play is more uptempo. I try to put speed in my game. I've got to make the simple plays."

Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper will once again have 21 players take the warmup later this evening and it's possible he could turn to rookie forward Jonathan Drouin to help spur the offense in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Drouin said a decision on his status will be made following the warmup, as has been the case throughout the series and for much of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Cooper has chosen to go mostly with seven defensemen and 11 forwards in three of the four games of the series, using defenseman Nikita Nesterov and scratching Drouin in those games. The loss in Game 4 dropped the Lightning's record to 9-5 in the playoffs when they dress seven defensemen. They are 5-5 in games where they've used six defensemen.
