Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that Jonathan Drouin will play during their second round series against Montreal, but it won't be in game two.
"We have a pretty tight knit team in there, and Jo is a pretty big part of our team this year. But to tell him to sit out ... it’s tough for everybody (to hear)," said Cooper. "He’s an extreme talent and he’s getting better and better. This is a learning lesson for him, just as it was for (Nikita Kucherov) last year or any of (those) guys. But we put in the 20 players we feel give us the best chance to play, and probably moving forward here he’s probably going to be in that 20 all the time. Just right now, he’s on the sidelines."

Jonathan Drouin and Mark Barberio will be scratched from Game One against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.

This will be Tampa's eighth playoff game of the season, and Drouin and Barberio have combined for just three games with little to show for their efforts. With 39 points in 159 combined games during the regular season, there isn't much potential fantasy talent to recommend here. For this season, anyway.

Forwards Jonathan Drouin and J.T. Brown and defenseman Mark Barberio will all be healthy scratches for Game 7 Wednesday night versus the Red Wings.

The Lightning will elect to use the same lineup that led to a 5-2 victory in Game 6 Monday night for Wednesday’s Game 7. They will once again have seven defensemen dress which means Nikita Nesterov will dress and J.T. Brown will watch from the press box. Joining Brown is the youngster Drouin, who was only able to dress in one game this series, and Barberio, who has been scratched for every game in the postseason so far. If the Bolts are able to defeat the Wings, we’d expect Drouin to get another chance to dress again this postseason versus the smaller, less physical Montreal Canadiens.

Jonathan Drouin is once again a healthy scratch for Monday’s Game 6 contest with the Red Wings.

The 20-year-old rookie was able to get one playoff game under his belt when he logged 8:42 in Game 4’s 3-2 overtime win but will now be scratched for a second straight game Monday. It’s a bit surprising that he has been scratched for five of the six games playoff games so far given the fact he played in 70 of Tampa Bay’s games during the regular season. As he becomes more of a complete player going forward, look for him to be in the middle of Tampa Bay’s success; just maybe not this postseason.
Apr 27 - 8:05 PM

Jonathan Drouin could be scratched again for Game 6 if Monday morning's practice lines remain intact.

The lines were the same as they were in Game 5, so that means Nikita Nesterov and Mark Barberio might be scratched as well.
Apr 27 - 3:09 PM

The Tampa Bay Lightning decided to make Jonathan Drouin a healthy scratch in Game 5 against the Detroit Red Wings.

Drouin wasn't particularly sharp in his playoff debut in Game 4, generating a -2 rating and receiving just 8:42 TOI. Perhaps he'll be sharper if he gets another chance during this postseason, though?
Apr 25 - 6:31 PM

It is not clear whether Jonathan Drouin will suit up for Game 5 Saturday evening.

He played in his first NHL playoff contest Thursday night and despite going minus two for the night, Bolts' coach Jon Cooper said Drouin "showed well". It remains to be seen if that will be enough to keep him in the lineup Saturday night, though.
Apr 25 - 12:09 PM

Jonathan Drouin looks to be a late addition to Tampa Bay's lineup in place of Brenden Morrow for Game Four on Thursday night against Detroit.

It'll be Drouin's first career NHL playoff game. However it may be a bit presumptuous to expect much offensive production from the highly touted rookie, Drouin posted just four goals and 32 points in 70 games this season.

Jonathan Drouin looks like he will participate in the pregame warmup Thursday.

However, it's still unclear if he'll make his NHL playoff debut in Game 5 against Detroit. If Drouin does play then Vladislav Namestnikov will probably be the guy who comes out of the lineup.
Apr 23 - 5:51 PM

Jonathan Drouin is still waiting to play in his first NHL playoff game.

"Sometimes, whether I'm right or wrong in this regard, it's better to step back and watch what is going on before you get in there," explained coach Jon Cooper going into Game 3. "And he's an important player for us. And to watch his growth as a 19-year-old kid, to come in and do what he has done for us, I've really watched him grow as a player. But we've played two pretty solid games ... and it's hard to upset the apple cart right now. But at some point we are going to need him, everything he has, because he is a really talented and skilled player." This kind of situation has occurred in the past for young players and all Drouin can do is what for his opportunity.
Apr 22 - 10:16 AM

It looks like Jonathan Drouin will remain in the press box for Game 3.

He rotated in with Vladislav Namestnikov on line with Valtteri Filppula and Cedric Paquette during Monday's practice. The combinations could change at Tuesday's morning session, but Drouin has been a healthy scratch for Tampa Bay's previous two playoff games against Detroit.
Apr 20 - 11:59 AM

Jonathan Drouin, Mark Barbiero and Andrei Vasilevskiy will be Tampa's healthy scratches for Game 2 against Detroit Saturday afternoon.

The three are currently skating in an optional practice. Given the game starts at 3:00 pm, that's a pretty good clue that they won't be dressing for the matinee.
Apr 18 - 11:02 AM

Jonathan Drouin and Mark Barberio will be healthy scratches in game one of Tampa Bay's series against Detroit.

Drouin is a young forward who brings a ton of skill to the table but the Lightning clearly wanted to go with more of a grinding fourth line. The 20-year-old finished the season with four goals and 32 points in 70 games this season.
Apr 16 - 7:24 PM

Jonathan Drouin appears to be a healthy scratch for Thursday's playoff opener.

Tampa Bay has to scratch someone because Alex Killorn is ready to play Thursday night and Drouin was one of the last players on the ice at the morning skate. If he sits then J.T. Brown will skate with Brian Boyle and Brenden Morrow on the fourth line. Drouin picked up four goals and 32 points in 70 games with the Lightning this campaign.
Apr 16 - 4:50 PM

Jonathan Drouin provided Tampa Bay’s only bolt of offense on Thursday night with a first period goal in the team’s 2-1 overtime loss to Ottawa.

It was Drouin’s fourth goal of the season, as the 20-year-old playmaker now has 31 points in 68 games this year.
