Jonathan Drouin potted a goal in Monday's 5-2 loss to Columbus.

Drouin has failed to impress this season. He has just 11 goals and 34 points in 64 games. Drouin still has plenty of potential though, but he could use more talent around him and a return to the wing could help.
Mar 13 - 10:20 AM

Jonathan Drouin picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the New York Islanders.

Drouin's power-play tally at the 8:29 mark of the second period gave the Canadiens a 2-1 lead at the time. He also helped set up Paul Byron's tally in the opening frame. Drouin finished the game with a plus-1 rating, one shot on goal and one hit in 14:14 of ice time. He has 10 goals and 32 points in 58 games this season. It's been a disappointing first year with Montreal for Drouin, but he'll be a bounce-back candidate heading into the 2018-19 season. Nikita Scherbak also found the back of the net for the Canadiens.

Jonathan Drouin netted a goal in a 6-3 loss to Vegas on Saturday.

It was Drouin's ninth goal and 29th point in 53 games this season. This has been a pretty disappointing campaign for Drouin, especially after Montreal gave up top prospect Mikhail Sergachev to get him from Tampa Bay. Still, Drouin is just 22-years-old so the trade might work out well for the Canadiens in the long run.
Feb 18 - 8:57 AM

Jonathan Drouin is on the ice for the pregame warmups and he is expected to play Sunday afternoon.

Drouin skated between Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher during line rushes. He was hurt after he took a shot to the ribs on Saturday and left the game, but he appears to be none the worse for wear.
Feb 4 - 12:40 PM

Jonathan Drouin will be a game-time decision on Sunday afternoon.

Drouin left Saturday's match against Anaheim after he was hit in the ribs by a shot. X-rays came back negative and he could be available to play against Ottawa.
Feb 4 - 11:04 AM

Jonathan Drouin had x-rays after taking a puck to the ribs but they came back negative.

Drouin took a Karl Alzner shot straight to the ribs and was brought to the hospital. Head coach Claude Julien spoke to the media after the game and said his star forward would be reevaluated tomorrow. Consider Drouin's status as being day-to-day.
Feb 3 - 6:21 PM

Jonathan Drouin left today's game after blocking a shot.

Drouin took a friendly fire shot to the ribs from teammate Karl Alzner before leaving the rink in street clothes en route to the hospital for x-rays. Losing Drouin for any period of time would be a huge blow to a Canadiens team that already has trouble creating offensive opportunities. Consider his status day-to-day for now.
Feb 3 - 3:08 PM

Jonathan Drouin generated a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Colorado.

Drouin earned helpers on goals by Nicolas Deslauriers and Alex Galchenyuk (power play) before scoring his seventh marker of the year in the third period. The 22-year-old forward has collected two goals and seven points in his past seven outings.
Jan 24 - 10:01 AM

Jonathan Drouin's time on the wing was short-lived on Wednesday night.

Drouin was back at center midway through the second period and Jacob De La Rose was dropped down to the fourth line. Drouin's three-game point streak came to an end in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Boston. He has disappointed this season with six goals and 21 points through 40 matches.
Jan 18 - 9:28 AM

Jonathan Drouin moved to the wing at Tuesday's practice.

Jacob De La Rose was flaked by Drouin and Alex Galchenyuk during the session and the combination may be together for the start of Wednesday's match against Boston. Drouin has had trouble adjusting to center this season. However, he has managed to record one goal and two assists during a three-game point streak.
Jan 16 - 4:24 PM

Jonathan Drouin has collected just two assists in his last 12 games.

Last week, Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin admitted that Drouin would probably be better served playing on the wing, but he continues to stick at center because the team doesn't have anyone else to play there. The Habs forward has been a major disappointment this season, but he's still young enough that could emerge as a high-end point producer in the near future.
Jan 13 - 9:19 AM

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin would prefer to have Jonathan Drouin playing on the wing.

"Probably a better option would be on the wing but, in the situation we're in, it's not possible," said Bergevin. "In a perfect world, if we had that No. 1 center, that guy who can make plays, a high-end center, (Drouin would) probably be on the wing." He hasn't clicked alongside Max Pacioretty or Alex Galchenyuk, while playing in the middle. Drouin has also struggled with his defensive zone responsibilities and faceoffs. It doesn't seem like anything will change though for the time being unless the Canadiens want to shift Andrew Shaw to center or give Galchenyuk another look.
Jan 9 - 10:13 AM

Jonathan Drouin has no goals and one assist in his last nine games.

Drouin is far from the only Canadiens player that's been struggling offensively, but he was supposed to be one of the team's top forwards. Instead, his 2017-18 campaign has been pretty underwhelming as he has five goals and 18 points in 34 games. The 22-year-old has a lot of upside, but in the short-term his fantasy value is limited.

Jonathan Drouin will be back in Tampa Bay for the first time as a member of the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

The Lightning traded Drouin to the Canadiens in the summer. He expects to hear some boos and cheers in his return, but Times columnist Tom Jones doesn't anticipate there being much of a reaction at all. Drouin has produced five goals and 13 assists in 34 games this season, while the player he was traded for, Mikhail Sergachev, has eight goals and 15 assists over 35 contests.
