Jonathan Drouin has been a key part of Tampa Bay's success in the playoffs.
What a turn of events. It was just a few months ago that Drouin and his agent asked for a trade out of Tampa. He was then shipped to the minors for a bit before he left the team to return home. Now that he's back, he's producing like a top-flight player. "I’m past that, so I’m not even thinking about it," Drouin said. "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. May 1 - 10:12 AM

Jonathan Drouin cannot help himself from getting on to the score sheet.

Drouin picked up his first goal of the postseason plus his sixth assist, giving him seven points through seven postseason games thus far. Pretty remarkable twist in the story, to say the least.
Apr 30 - 6:35 PM

Jonathan Drouin registered three assists in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Detroit in Game 4.

Drouin had a hand in all three of Tampa Bay's goals. He assisted on goals by Nikita Kucherov (twice) and Ondrej Palat. The 21-year-old was also on the ice both times Detroit scored. Drouin has four assists in four games in the series. The Lightning are going back home with a chance to put the Red Wings away for good in Game 5.
Apr 19 - 10:18 PM

Jonathan Drouin admitted he was playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder going into the playoffs.

"I want to be more involved in the areas that are hard to play," Drouin said. "That was something I looked at while I was (suspended), what I focused on, being involved more, more into the game and less on the outside." He dished out some big hits in Game 1 against the Red Wings and his speed was a factor in some scoring chances. Coach Jon Cooper rewarded Drouin for his efforts with 17:39 of ice time.
Apr 15 - 8:57 AM

Jonathan Drouin was way more comfortable in his second game back in the NHL.

Drouin scored in Thursday's win over New Jersey and also found the back of the net against Montreal on Saturday night. "As the game goes on, I feel more comfortable," Drouin said. "I definitely got my feet went (on Thursday), takes a little time to adjust to the speed and the game, but as the ice time goes up, confidence is going up and I feel comfortable." With all the injuries Tampa Bay's dealing with going into postseason, Drouin will likely see some significant minutes.
Apr 10 - 11:01 AM

Jonathan Drouin scored his second goal in as many games to end season during Saturday's 5-2 loss to Montreal.

Fancy that. Suddenly Drouin is one of Tampa Bay's most important pieces to the scoring machine. He put home 10 points in 21 games for the Lightning this season to boot.
Apr 9 - 11:14 PM

Jonathan Drouin scored the game-winning goal against New Jersey in his return to the Lightning lineup on Thursday night.

Who would have thought this a few months ago after his trade demand and subsequent suspension? Nonetheless, the Bolts hope Drouin can provide some goal-scoring power in the playoffs now that Steven Stamkos is out indefinitely.
Apr 8 - 1:30 AM

Jonathan Drouin has been called up by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Drouin has had a strained season with the Lightning as he publicly demanded to be traded and was temporarily suspended for refusing to play in the AHL. His suspension was later lifted and he resumed playing in the minors and while Lightning GM Steve Yzerman expressed a willingness to fulfill his trade request, nothing was worked out before the deadline. This is a key opportunity for Drouin to show what he's capable of and perhaps boost his trade value ahead of the summer. At the same time, he might help fill the massive void left by Steven Stamkos' absence, although no one is expecting him to do that alone.
Apr 7 - 11:03 AM

Jonathan Drouin did not play Sunday for Syracuse because he "tweaked" something in his lower body, according to Crunch coach Rob Zettler.

It certainly comes at a bad time as the Lightning could use him with Steven Stamkos out for one to three months because of a blood clot. Drouin has 11 goals and two assists in 17 games in the AHL, with nine of those goals coming in the past 10 games.
Apr 3 - 6:43 PM

Jonathan Drouin could eventually get his chance with the Lightning soon.

With Steven Stamkos out for one to three months because of a blood clot, the Lightning will surely look to find ways to replace his offense. Not that Drouin would be able fill the void entirely, but he could help. Drouin has 11 goals in 17 games in the AHL, but nine of those goals have come in the past 10 games. When asked about recalling Drouin, Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said, "It's definitely something we would have to consider."
Apr 3 - 6:40 PM

Jonathan Drouin was handed a one-game suspension by AHL Syracuse for missing a team meeting.

Drouin missed Wednesday's game as a result, but he will be back in the lineup on Friday. Drouin requested a trade back in November, but the Tampa Bay Lightning didn't deal him before the trade deadline. However, on Jan. 20 he was suspended indefinitely by the Lightning for refusing to play for Syracuse. After the deadline passed without him being traded, Drouin resumed playing for the AHL squad on March 7.
Mar 24 - 11:28 AM

Steve Yzerman has excited Tampa Bay Lightning fans everywhere.

While speaking with ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, the Lightning GM noted that there's a "very realistic" possibility that maligned prospect Jonathan Drouin gets called up before the end of the season. Ever the pragmatist Yzerman explained, "The plan was for him to go down and play and come back, so with the situation right now, if it is good for our team and it is the right thing to do, he will be recalled." Drouin has posted four goals and six points in 10 games with AHL Syracuse, along with two goals and eight points in 19 games with Tampa this season.
Mar 15 - 9:20 PM

Jonathan Drouin scored two goals for Syracuse in a 7-4 loss to Rochester Saturday night in AHL action.

That's three points in two games with the Crunch for Drouin since his suspension was lifted. There are many possible outcomes for Drouin now. At one time, it was almost a certainty he would be traded. Then the trade deadline passed and Drouin was still property of the Lightning. Now with a seemingly new attitude he is playing well with Syracuse which could lead to a promotion to the NHL. Stay tuned. The Drouin saga is far from over.
Mar 13 - 10:33 AM

Jonathan Drouin played reasonably well in his return to AHL action Friday night.

As you may recall, Drouin had his suspension lifted this week for not reporting to Syracuse in January. In Friday's contest his skill was evident as he reigstered an assist in the Crunch's 5-2 win over Bridegport. Although Drouin did not dominate the contest and coughed up the puck on a few occaissons there were plenty positives in his game for the many scouts in attendance to consider.
Mar 12 - 9:38 AM

At least five teams will have scouts in attendance to watch Jonathan Drouin with AHL Syracuse on Friday night.

According to Corey Pronman Arizona, Philadelphia, Minnesota, Ottawa and Toronto will be there tonight. Pronman also notes that these teams are "not typically on Upstate [NY] AHL rotation". The trade deadline has passed, so a deal won't happen any time soon. But obviously the imagination can take this and stash it away for the summer.
