Jonathan Drouin is getting some ice time on the Lightning's first power-play unit.
He replaced Ryan Callahan in practice Thursday and for parts of Friday night's game against New Jersey. Needless to say, if Drouin can continue to log time with Steven Stamkos and company on the top unit, it will be a big boost to his fantasy value. Dec 20 - 11:33 AM

Jonathan Drouin set up a goal by Steve Stamkos in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Philadelphia.

The rookie forward was moved up to Tampa Bay's top line in the contest. Drouin has two goals and 13 points in 24 games this season, but if he can stick on a scoring line then his fantasy value increases dramatically in standard leagues.

Jonathan Drouin is expected to skate on Tampa's top line Tuesday night in Philadelphia.

Drouin-Stamkos-Callahan, now that's a formidable line who have scored a combined 30 goals and 69 points so far this season. Look for them to do some damage in Philly.

Jonathan Drouin tallied his second goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

He scored on the power play shortly after the Lightning allowed a shorthanded marker. Drouin replaced Valtteri Filppula late in the match on the top line with Steve Stamkos, but they weren't able to generate much. The rookie winger has 12 points in 23 games.

Jonathan Drouin won't be loaned to Canada for the World Junior Championship.

He's been in and out of Tampa Bay's lineup, but the club wants to keep him on their roster. The move isn't surprising despite his limited role. Drouin has one goal and 10 assists in 20 games with the Lightning.

Jonathan Drouin was a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

The move should fuel the fire regarding a possible loan to Canada for the World Junior Championship later this month. Tampa Bay doesn't have to make a decision until the NHL roster freeze goes into effect on Dec. 19.
Dec 10 - 11:48 AM

The Tampa Triune does not expect the Lightning to loan Jonathan Drouin out to team Canada for the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championships.

Lightning beat reporter Erik Erlendsson admits it's not impossible that Drouin could go play for his country, but says it isn't likely. The 19-year-old has just one goal in 20 games this season, but Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman says he is pleased with Drouin's development. "We are really pleased with how he is coming along,’’ Yzerman said. "He’s doing a lot of good things, things that he hasn’t had to do in junior hockey, and he’s picking up on them quickly. We only expect him to get better.’’

It is possible that Jonathan Drouin will get a little more playing time now that Vladislav Namestnikov has been demoted to Syracuse of the AHL.

That makes one less forward to compete with for ice time. Drouin played a strong game Thursday against the Sabres on a line with Brenden Morrow and Brian Boyle and will likely draw back in against Columbus Saturday night. Of course, he was on the ice for an optional skate Saturday morning with players who are unlikely to play, so you never know.

Jonathan Drouin wasn't named to Canada's World Junior selection camp, but he could still be on the final roster.

"To be honest, I'd rather stay here," Drouin said Saturday. "It's one month you're away from the team and a lot of stuff is going to happen. I'd rather be here than play for World Juniors." With Tampa Bay's depth and Drouin's limited role it wouldn't be that much of a stretch if the Lightning loaned him for the tournament.
Dec 1 - 4:19 PM

Look for Jonathan Drouin to return to the Tampa lineup Saturday night against the Senators.

He was a healthy scratch Wednesday night against the Rangers. Drouin has shown flashses of brilliance but the Lightning have so much forward depth they can afford to bring the talented rookie along slowly. That's not what poolies who own him want to hear, though.
Nov 29 - 11:33 AM

Jonathan Drouin is slated to be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.

The Lightning have enjoyed tremendous scoring depth this season, which has allowed them to bring Drouin along slower than most fantasy owners would like. The highly-touted rookie has one goal and eight assists in 16 games this season. J.T. Brown is also expected to be scratched.
Nov 26 - 3:44 PM

Jonathan Drouin will play on Monday after being a healthy scratch on Saturday.

"It's a new thing, my first time getting scratched," Drouin said. "It's part of the process. Not much I can do about it. It's a little different for me." Drouin has a ton of potential and if he ever gets discouraged about being scratched in his rookie season, he can just look to teammate Steve Stamkos, who spent some time in the press box during his first NHL campaign.
Nov 17 - 4:51 PM

Jonathan Drouin will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

The Lightning are hosting the Islanders and Drouin isn't on the ice for pre-game warmups. The 19-year-old has one goal and eight points in 12 games this season.
Nov 15 - 6:37 PM

Jonathan Drouin skated on Tampa Bay's top line Thursday night.

It wasn't even certain if he would play in the contest, as it was being speculated that he could be a healthy scratch to make room for previously injured forwards Tyler Johnson and Alex Killorn. Drouin skated with Steven Stamkos and Vladislav Namestnikov in a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks. The rookie forward had three shots in 14:19 of ice time.
Nov 14 - 10:27 AM

There's a chance that Jonathan Drouin could be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Tyler Johnson (upper body) and Alex Killorn (upper body) are listed as probable to play against San Jose. Coach Jon Cooper wouldn't talk about who would come out if both forwards return, but he admitted that it would be a difficult choice because "nobody on our team is deserving to come out." Cedric Paquette is another option to head to the press box.
