Jonathan Drouin, Jonathan Marchessault, and Vladislav Namestnikov will be scratched from Friday's Game 4 against the New York Rangers.
With the Lightning leading the series 2-1, and after having scored a dozen goals the past two games, Coach Cooper doesn't seem compelled to make any unnecessary changes to the lineup. Of note, the one change that he is making is defenseman Mark Barberio will play in place of the injured Matt Carle. May 22 - 5:33 PM

Jonathan Drouin and Vladislav Namestnikov will both be healthy scratches for Game 3 against the Rangers on Wednesday.

The Lightning will continue to use 11 forwards and seven defensemen for Game 3, which has led them to victory in five of six games with that alignment, which means Drouin and Namestnikov will remain in the press box. Drouin has played in only three games this postseason and has yet to register a point, while Namestnikov has picked up an assist in 11 games.
May 20 - 7:53 PM

Look for both Jonathan Drouin and Vladislav Namestnikov to be healthy scratches for Game One of the Eastern Conference finals scheduled for 1:00 pm Saturday.

They both practised on the Bolts' fifth line which is a pretty good indicator they will sit in the press box.
May 16 - 11:26 AM

Jonathan Drouin will be joined by defender Mark Barberio in the press box for Game Six against Montreal on Tuesday night.

Barberio hasn't played in the postseason and Drouin has no points through three games.
May 12 - 6:08 PM

It looks like Jonathan Drouin won't be the one to fill the void left by Ryan Callahan (emergency appendectomy) on Tuesday.

Surprisingly, Jonathan Marchessault is expected to be inserted into the lineup instead. Marchessault only has four games worth of NHL experience. Drouin, 20, had four goals and 32 points in 70 contests with the Lightning in 2014-15.
May 12 - 2:24 PM

Jonathan Drouin might draw into the Lightning's lineup on Tuesday.

The Lightning will be missing Ryan Callahan because he had an emergency appendectomy on Monday. Drouin has only participated in three of the Lightning's postseason games and even when he's been in the lineup, he's only averaged 11:10 minutes of ice time. Callahan has left the team with a substantial void to fill and that might lead to Drouin not only playing, but also logging decent minutes.
May 12 - 11:00 AM

It is likely that Jonathan Drouin will once again sit in the press box for a playoff game.

He was a healthy scratch in Game 4. With the return to health of Cedric Paquette, there doesn't appear to a be a place for Drouin in the Bolts' lineup.
May 9 - 10:39 AM

Jonathan Drouin logged 9:54 of ice time in Game 3 on Wednesday night.

He had a minus-1 rating and no shots. Cedric Paquette's status will be determined before the pregame warmup and if he can return from an undisclosed injury then Drouin will probably be back in the press box as a healthy scratch.
May 7 - 3:47 PM

Jonathan Drouin will be in the lineup for Game 3.

He will play in place of Cedric Paquette, who is out with an undisclosed injury. Drouin's only action of the postseason so far came in the 8:42 he played in Game 4 against Detroit in the opening round. He will play on the fourth line against Montreal in his series debut.
May 6 - 6:53 PM

Jonathan Drouin is itching to play.

"Everyday it gets harder a little bit," Drouin said. "You want to get in, not only for me, for everyone that's not playing. You want to be in the lineup, you want to make a difference. You've just got to wait your turn and be ready when your name is called." His chance to play could come Wednesday in Game 3 against Montreal because Cedric Paquette will be a game-time decision because of an undisclosed ailment.
May 6 - 4:49 PM

Jonathan Drouin will probably participate in the pregame warmup on Wednesday.

However, his participation in Game 3 versus Montreal remains uncertain. If Cedric Paquette's undisclosed injury prevents him from playing then Drouin will likely draw into the fold for the first time since Game 4 versus Detroit.
May 6 - 11:54 AM

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."
May 3 - 2:57 PM

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.
May 1 - 5:34 PM

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.
Apr 29 - 5:45 PM

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.
