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. Jun 20 - 9:48 AM

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."

The Tampa Bay Lightning are going with forward Jonathan Drouin against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 on Saturday.

Drouin gives the Bolts a burst of skill and speed, even if he's prone to mistakes that make Jon Cooper cringe. With this change, the Lightning go back to a traditional 12-forward, six-defensemen setup.
Jun 13 - 8:17 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 5:19 PM

Jonathan Drouin continues to practice on the Lightning's fourth line.

He lined up again alongisde Brenden Morrow and Brian Boyle during the team's scrimmage on Friday. Drouin, who played in Game 2 of the Finals, is hoping to draw in Saturday night for Game 5.

Jonathan Drouin will take part in the pregame warmup prior to Game 4.

He skated on the fourth line during Wednesday's morning skate and he's hoping to play after he was a made a late scratch in Game 3. Drouin looked like he was going to play on Monday, but the Lightning decided to go with seven defensemen again.
Jun 10 - 1:38 PM

Jonathan Drouin will lead the list of scratches in Game 3 Monday night versus Chicago.

Despite previous reports, Tampa Bay will insert Nikita Nesterov into the lineup for Drouin and go back to using seven defensemen and 11 forwards. Drouin played in Tampa Bay's Game 2 victory but saw just 7:52 of ice time while recording two shots on goal with a minus one rating. Joining Drouin in the press box are forwards Jonathan Marchessault and Vladislav Namestnikov and defenseman Mark Barberio.

Furthering the assumption that Jonathan Drouin will play in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, he will participate in the pregame warmup.

"We put the 20 guys in that day we think is going to give us the best chance of winning the game," coach Joe Cooper said. "Jonathan Drouin is a big part of us. I thought the other night everything we asked him to do, he did. Is Jonathan Drouin going to play tonight? He might, he might not." Cooper added that Drouin proved he can play more games in the Stanley Cup Final and it looks possible that chance will come in Game 3.
Jun 8 - 5:28 PM

Jonathan Drouin should be considered probable to stay in the lineup for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final.

He suited up in Game 2 on Saturday for his fourth appearance of the playoffs. Drouin didn't have extra work at the morning skate, which indicates that he'll be in the lineup again.
Jun 8 - 2:47 PM

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper praised Jonathan Drouin's Game 2 performance.

Drouin was a healthy scratch in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, but he did play 7:52 in Game 2. He didn't register a point and he finished with a minus-1 rating in the game, but coach Cooper liked what he saw from the young forward. "I thought Jo was great," said Jon Cooper. "He did everything we wanted him to. He took some short shifts, which cut his ice time down a little bit. But he came into that game, and he’s been prepared to play during our run here."
Jun 7 - 10:36 AM

Jonathan Drouin will indeed see his first taste of Cup Final action on Saturday night.

Following up on a earlier update, Drouin will draw in the lineup as the Lightning will go with 12 forwards. Nikita Nesterov will come out of the lineup. The speculation is that Tyler Johnson is a little banged up and Drouin will be there as a backup option for Jon Cooper. Drouin will likely start on the fourth line.
Jun 6 - 7:23 PM

Although it looks like the Lightning will be going with substantially the same lineup in Game 2 as they iced in Game 1 of the Cup finals, Jonathan Drouin may get a chance to play.

Drouin is scheduled to take warmups prior to the start of the contest and a decision about his status will be made at that time. Jonathan Marchessault, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Mark Barberio will all continue being healthy scratches Saturday night.
Jun 6 - 10:59 AM

Forward Jonathan Drouin, Jonathan Marchessault, Vladislav Namestnikov will join defender Mark Barberio in the press box Friday night for Game 7 versus the Rangers.

While the latter three have each filled in admirably for a game or two this series for an injured or sick teammate, but neither have produced on the scoreboard. Hopefully for their sake, the Lightning will move on and offer them another shot at glory this postseason.

Jonathan Drouin, Cedric Paquette, and Mark Barberio will each be scratched from Tuesday's Game 6 versus the Rangers.

Tough break for Paquette, who is likely dealing with a right hand injury. However nothing has been disclosed. As is, Drouin and Barberio wait in the wings should their services be needed.
