Jonathan Drouin made an unbelievable pass to set up Brian Boyle with Tampa's first goal in a 4-0 win over Chicago Friday night.

It was a blind behind-the-back beauty as Drouin was just about to circle behind the Chicago net. For those of you who missed it, here is a link: Drouin will be an NHL star. It's not a matter of if, but when.

Jonathan Drouin has topped 10 minutes of ice time two times in his last five outings.

"For sure, it's hard playing eight minutes a night, but that's the way it goes up here, I think," said Drouin. "I just have to keep moving forward and try to be positive. And we are winning, so that's the biggest thing that I want to be a part of — winning. So, I'm happy to be here no matter what minutes, whether it's 15 or whatever it is. It's a little different." He has skated mostly on the fourth line this season because of his early-season injury and Tampa Bay's depth up front. Drouin earned an assist in nearly 11 minutes of action against Anaheim on Wednesday to give him 24 points in 49 games. He's being brought along slowly in his rookie season, but that shouldn't sour you on what will probably be a very successful NHL career.

Jonathan Drouin earned an assist in Tampa Bay's 2-1 overtime loss to St. Louis on Tuesday.

The rookie winger has two goals in 41 games this season, but he's registered 21 assists including five in his past four outings. Drouin has enjoyed a scoring surge on the third line with Cedric Paquette and Alex Killorn.
Feb 4 - 11:14 AM

Jonathan Drouin worked on Tampa Bay's top power-play unit Wednesday.

He joined a group that included Steven Stamkos, Ryan Callahan, Valtteri Filppula and Anton Stralman. The Lightning has scored on just eight of their past 68 opportunities.

Jonathan Drouin admits there has been some disappointment with his rookie season, but he is "happy with the process" and is more than willing to keep working.

"This isn't a one-year investment. It's long term with (Jonathan)," coach Jon Cooper said. "It's a different game than what he came from in junior. But he's gotten better and better and better. It's clear when you watch the games now. There's more command of the puck. He doesn't rush plays anymore. He knows he has a little more time." Drouin said his confidence at the NHL level is growing, which will hopefully lead to an increase in his point production. He has two goals and 18 points in 37 games, but fantasy owners should remember that he doesn't turn 20 until the end of March and he still has a long career ahead of him.

Team Foligno’s Jonathan Drouin won the fastest skater event at the NHL All-Star skills competition with a time of 13.103 seconds.

Team Foligno swept the event with all five skaters winning their respective heats. Phil Kessel defeated Tyler Seguin, Jiri Sekac knocked off Mike Hoffman and Zemgus Girgensons was quicker than Vladimir Tarasenko. Drouin defeated Mike Hoffman 13.103 seconds to 13.163 seconds.

Jonathan Drouin will draw back in against the Avalanche Saturday night.

He was a healthy scratch Thursday against the Oilers. It will be an interesting showdown between Drouin and his former junior linemante Nathan MacKinnon. We suspect both will want to put on a good show.
Jan 17 - 3:00 PM

Jonathan Drouin is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Edmonton.

It's a little surprising that the Lightning would scratch Drouin, because he had been producing recently. The 19-year-old has four assists in his last five games. Overall, he has two goals and 18 points in 35 games. Brenden Morrow is also a healthy scratch for Tampa Bay.
Jan 15 - 7:45 PM

Jonathan Drouin is currently on a three-game point streak.

Drouin has collected one assist in each of his last three games. The 19-year-old is going will take part in the NHL's skill competition later this month. Drouin has two goals and 17 points in 33 games this season. He's been moved up and down Tampa's lineup throughout the season, so it's hard to get a gauge on his fantasy value for the rest of the 2014-15 season.
Jan 12 - 5:40 PM

Jonathan Drouin is looking forward to Tuesday's game at Montreal.

"Obviously it's the team I watched when I was young," said Drouin. "It should be exciting, my family will be in town. There's going to be a lot of memories." The rookie forward has two goals and 13 assists in 31 games this season. He's still learning to play at the NHL level, but he believes he is making progress.
Jan 6 - 10:19 AM

Jonathan Drouin (illness) is now fully recovered and will play Monday night against Toronto.

Drouin will line up on the wing with Steven Stamkos and Cedric Paquette in his usual spot on the top line for Tampa Bay. The 19-year-old rookie has only scored two goals but has chipped in 12 assists in 27 games this season. He should pick up his point production paired up with sniper Steven Stamkos though.

Jonathan Drouin (illness) will probably play on Monday.

Drouin said that he's ready while Lightning coach Jon Cooper was a bit less definitive by saying that there was "a good chance." Drouin missed Saturday's game, which led to Steve Stamkos playing on a line with Brett Connolly. If Drouin returns on Monday, then Connolly will probably be taken off of the top line.

Jonathan Drouin (illness) missed Sunday's practice.

He rode the stationary bike and will try to participate in Monday's morning skate. Drouin sat out Saturday's game due to an illness. For now, he is expected to return no later than Wednesday in Buffalo, but he isn't projected to play Monday night.

It doesn't appear that Jonathan Drouin has contracted the mumps.

It looks like he has a garden-variety flu. It is not clear if Drouin will be sufficiently recovered to play Monday against Toronto and the fact that he is not practising Sunday morning does not bode well for his return. For now we would keep Drouin on reserve and check back with us on Monday as to his condition.
