Jonathan Drouin scored a goal and added an assist on the power play in Tuesday's 5-2 setback in San Jose.
The Habs have struggled on the offensive end, but Drouin has at least answered the bell over the past two outings. He has two goals and two assists over the past two losses. He is coming off a career-high 53 points last season with the Lightning, and you can expect similar results as he is heavily counted upon for points in Montreal. Oct 18 - 3:28 AM

Jonathan Drouin scored a goal and registered an assist in the Canadiens 4-3 loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Drouin scored the Canadiens' third goal of the game, his first in a Canadiens uniform. The forward also assisted on the Canadiens' opening goal of the game, courtesy of Jeff Petry. Drouin is expected to carry a significant scoring load for the Canadiens this year.

Jonathan Drouin registered an assist in Montreal's 3-2 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres.

In his first game as a Montreal Canadien, Drouin also added the shootout winner (he was the only player to score in the shootout). The 22-year-old looked comfortable with linemate Max Pacioretty, and the two combined to score a goal late in the first period. Drouin scored a career-high 53 points with Tampa Bay last year, but he'll have every opportunity to surpass those numbers this year. He has the potential to score between 60-70 points in 2017-18.

Jonathan Drouin found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-2 preseason loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

This was his first goal as a member of the Canadiens. The bad news is that the Canadiens are now 0-6 in the preseason. The good news is that Drouin, who missed Monday's exhibition game because of an injury, looked good in this one. The Canadiens will need him to produce big numbers if they want to have any hope of making a strong playoff push this season. There's a lot to like about Drouin from a fantasy perspective heading into the season.

Jonathan Drouin will miss Monday's exhibition game against Toronto because of an upper-body injury.

Drouin is currently listed as day-to-day. Torrey Mitchell will play in his place. Montreal will play three more preseason matches before opening the regular season on Oct. 5 at Buffalo.
Sep 25 - 1:59 PM

Jonathan Drouin earned an assist in his preseason debut with Montreal on Wednesday night.

Drouin and fellow newcomer Ales Hemsky recorded helpers on a power-play goal by Max Pacioretty in a 4-2 loss to Washington. Drouin has been playing between Pacioretty and Hemsky for most of camp and the trio could open the regular season as the Canadiens' top line. Drouin also won seven of 15 faceoffs in the match after he got off to a 0-for-4 start.
Sep 21 - 9:24 AM

Jonathan Drouin reported to Canadiens' training camp 15 pounds heavier than he was last season.

According to reports he has added muscle to his lower body and hopes to be stronger on the puck. That will serve Drouin well if he is to be the Habs' number one center this season.
Sep 17 - 9:40 AM

Although it is early don't be surprised if the Canadiens ice two scoring lines with the first featuring Jonathan Drouin at center.

Drouin could line up between Max Pacioretty and Artturi Lehkonen on the first unit and Phillip Danault Danault could skate between Alex Galchenyuk and Brenden Gallagher on the second line. Keep an eye on this situation going forward as Lehknonen looks to be the winner in this possible alignment.
Sep 16 - 10:18 AM

Montreal intends to "experiment" with Jonathan Drouin at center, according to GM Marc Bergevin.

That could place him on the top line with Max Paciretty for the start of the season. Drouin spent some time in the middle during his QMJHL days and feels he can make the necessary adjustments.
Sep 11 - 10:43 AM

Jonathan Drouin says he's "not nervous" about the possibility of playing center.

Nothing's been confirmed yet, but there are some whispers that Montreal is considering having Drouin play down the middle. "I'm not nervous playing center," he said. "I played there in junior for a full year. Before going to play with Nate (MacKinnon) in Halifax I was a centerman, and it definitely doesn't make me nervous if that's the case." The Lightning used Drouin primarily as a winger during his time there. He definitely has the hands and vision to play center, but it'll be interesting to see if he's able to handle the heavier workload in his own end.

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.
Jun 15 - 6:36 PM

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.
Jun 15 - 3:11 PM

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.
May 28 - 10:46 AM

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.
