Jonathan Drouin skated alongside Connor McDavid and Mark Scheifele during Team North America's first practice for the World Cup of Hockey.

He is viewing the tournament as another opportunity to prove himself just like he did when he came up from the minors late in the season and lit it up in the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs. "I was a little shocked and surprised, the way my year went, to be called at the end of the season," Drouin admitted. "I was definitely happy. I take it as a challenge."

Lightning coach Jon Cooper believes Jonathan Drouin will be a dominant player in the NHL.

Drouin had an up and down season in 2015-16. He was demoted to the AHL before requesting a trade and then going back home when he didn't get his wish. But a strong playoff performance restored the Lightning's faith in him. "Jonathan Drouin always had the talent, he just had to find his way through the mental aspect of the game," said Cooper. "When he figured that, the sky became the limit for this kid. I think if this was a situation where we were giving up on Jonathan Drouin then Steve probably would have traded him, but there is too much in that player." It sure seems like Drouin is ready to have a breakout season.

"It's a tight-knit group, and going forward, he's happy being part of it." Drouin had 10 points in 21 regular season games, and 14 points in 17 games in the playoffs.

Jonathan Drouin wants to be back with the Lightning next season.

"I definitely want to be here," Drouin said. "I love the way this ended, I guess, with this different and weird year. ... It's definitely somewhere I want to play." Drouin had a strong finish to the season when he scored in two straight games prior to the playoffs. In the postseason, he registered five goals and 14 points in 17 outings. "He makes us a better team. It's as simple as that," GM Steve Yzerman said. "What he showed me, I think the best thing for this team right now is Jonathan Drouin on it."

It doesn't sound like the Lightning will be trading Jonathan Drouin and that shouldn't come as a surprise.

GM Steve Yzerman indicated that Drouin would be back with the team next season. "I think the best thing for our team is for Jonathan Drouin is on it," said Yzerman. It appears as though the two sides have mended fences since Drouin requested a trade back in November. He was demoted to the minors and later suspended for walking away from the team, but he was reinstated after Steven Stamkos was injured and played great for the Lightning. The 21-year-old forward excelled in the playoffs with 14 points in 17 games.

He notched 14 points in 17 games to help the Bolts come within one win of another trip to the Stanley Cup Final. It will certainly be interesting to see what Lightning GM Steve Yzerman does with this young, budding star this off-season.

"Definitely not thinking of where I was going to be when I was sitting at home. I’m definitely happy with the outcome. ... I definitely had a little chip on my shoulder going in, but I’m just playing hockey and trying to help this team win. It’s definitely going well." The 21-year-old has one goal and seven points in seven playoff games in 2016.
