Jonathan Drouin has a modified no-trade clause in the final two years of his new contract with Montreal.
Drouin can submit a list of three teams that he's willing to go to in years five and six of his six-year, $33 million contract. If the Canadiens do want to trade him during those years, this no-movement clause shouldn't prevent them from doing that. Jun 16 - 8:11 PM

Jonathan Drouin has signed a six-year, $33 million contract extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

That works out to an annual cap hit of $5.5 million. The Canadiens acquired Drouin from Tampa Bay in exchange for Mikhail Sergachev. If Sergachev doesn't play in at least 40 games in 2017-18 then the Lightning will also get a second-round pick from Montreal and give the Canadiens a sixth-round pick. Drouin has a ton of potential, so it makes sense that Montreal would want to lock up their newly acquired forward. That being said, they're also taking a risk here. Drouin set career-highs in 2016-17 with 21 goals and 53 points in 73 contests, so if he doesn't continue to develop as projected then this contract will look bad in a few years. On the other hand if he does develop into the star they're hoping for then that $5.5 million contract will be a bargain.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Jonathan Drouin and a 2018 conditional sixth-round pick from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Mikhail Sergachev and a 2018 conditional second-round selection.

That's a big acquisition for Montreal. Drouin had 21 goals and 53 points in 73 games last season, but the 22-year-old forward still has plenty of upside left. In other words, Montreal might have just wrestled a future star forward away from the Lightning. Drouin is a restricted free agent though and the Lightning are in a somewhat tough cap situation, so that could be part of what influenced Tampa Bay to make this trade. Plus Sergachev is a great prospect and the second-round pick is noteworthy, so Montreal is making some sacrifices here too even if it does still look like a great trade for them. It's also worth noting that while Sergachev isn't eligible for the expansion draft, Drouin is, so now the Lightning are in a better position when it comes to making its protected list.

Although it still seems a little far-fetched, the Lightning may consider trading Jonathan Drouin to get a puck-moving defenceman.

Drouin has shown glimpses of superstardom, but he has also been terribly inconsistent in his NHL career so far. The Bolts are in desperate need of a top-four mobile rearguard and Drouin could certainly fetch them that in a trade. It will be interesting to see if GM Steve Yzerman has the stomach to deal Drouin given the risk he may turn out to be a star wherever he ends up.

Tampa Bay has some key restricted free agents to sign this off-season, but the trickiest negotiation could come with Jonathan Drouin.

He has completed his entry-level contract and displayed his offensive potential in 2016-17. Drouin registered 21 goals and 53 points in 73 games. He would like to stay with the Lightning after mending what was a rocky relationship last year.
Apr 11 - 11:24 AM

Jonathan Drouin extended his point streak to four games on Sunday.

He recorded his 32nd assist of the season during Sunday's 6-3 win against Dallas. Drouin has three goals and five points during his scoring spree. Through 69 games this season he has 21 goals and 53 points.
Apr 2 - 10:25 PM

Jonathan Drouin scored a goal on the power play in a 5-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday.

Drouin stickhandled his way through the entire Red Wings penalty killing unit before unleashing a shot from the circle that beat Petr Mrazek. Drouin is now up to 21 goals on the year and has eight points in his last six games for the Lightning. He has come a long way since his trade demand last season and is turning into the player the Lightning envisioned when they selected him 3rd overall during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He's up to 51 points in 67 games this season.

Jonathan Drouin scored twice in the Tampa Bay Lightning's dramatic, 5-4 overtime triumph over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks Monday night.

Drouin scored his second goal of the night -- and 20th of the season -- on a Tampa Bay power play at 16:24 of the second period. It tied the game at 4-4. With 35 seconds left in OT, Yanne Gourde found the net with his second goal of the season to complete the Lightning's comeback win. The Hawks were up 4-1 early in the second period. Assisting on Gourde's goal was high-scoring defenseman Victor Hedman. It was his 50th assist of the season and third of the game. Hedman also assisted on Drouin's game-tying goal and on Ondrej Palat's power-play goal in the first period. Palat has 16 goals on the season. Also scoring for the Lightning in this one was Anton Stralman, his fourth of the season. With the win, Tampa Bay is one point out of the second wild-card spot.

Jonathan Drouin broke out Thursday with one goal and two assists in a 6-3 victory versus Boston.

He snapped a 13-game goalless drought and celebrated by taking the monkey off his back. Drouin also recorded a pair of assists on power-play goals by Nikita Kucherov.

For all his brilliance, Jonathan Drouin has not scored a goal in Tampa's last 12 games.

There is no question that Drouin has amazing offensive potential, but the Tampa coaching staff had to be hoping he would step up with so many injuries to the Bolts' up front. That hasn't happened. It is especially disappointing as rookie Brayden Point seems to have found a new gear to his game that Drouin can't seem to find. It is far too early to write Drouin off, but his last dozen games has to have poolies scratching their collective heads.
Mar 19 - 9:50 AM

Jonathan Drouin had a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Lightning forward has now gone 11 games without finding the back of the net. Drouin finished the game with a game-high five shots on goal. He has 17 goals and 26 assists in 61 games this season.
Mar 17 - 12:10 AM

Jonathan Drouin has recovered from the flu bug he caught, and will return to the lineup following the bye-week on Monday against Ottawa.

This after practicing in full with the team on Saturday, which is a great sign. He has 17 goals and 36 points along with 36 hits in 51 games this season.
Feb 25 - 1:09 PM

Jonathan Drouin won't play in Thursday's match against Calgary due to the flu.

Tough break for the talented winger, and the Lightning. Cory Conacher will tag in, skating to the right of Brian Boyle and Valterri Filppula on the team's third line.

Drouin might miss Thursday's game as a result. He will be a game-time decision. Cory Conacher, who was summoned on Wednesday, will play if Drouin can't.
