Jonathan Drouin admits there has been some disappointment with his rookie season, but he is "happy with the process" and is more than willing to keep working.

"This isn't a one-year investment. It's long term with (Jonathan)," coach Jon Cooper said. "It's a different game than what he came from in junior. But he's gotten better and better and better. It's clear when you watch the games now. There's more command of the puck. He doesn't rush plays anymore. He knows he has a little more time." Drouin said his confidence at the NHL level is growing, which will hopefully lead to an increase in his point production. He has two goals and 18 points in 37 games, but fantasy owners should remember that he doesn't turn 20 until the end of March and he still has a long career ahead of him.

Jonathan Drouin will draw back in against the Avalanche Saturday night.

He was a healthy scratch Thursday against the Oilers. It will be an interesting showdown between Drouin and his former junior linemante Nathan MacKinnon. We suspect both will want to put on a good show.

Jonathan Drouin is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Edmonton.

It's a little surprising that the Lightning would scratch Drouin, because he had been producing recently. The 19-year-old has four assists in his last five games. Overall, he has two goals and 18 points in 35 games. Brenden Morrow is also a healthy scratch for Tampa Bay.

Jonathan Drouin is currently on a three-game point streak.

Drouin has collected one assist in each of his last three games. The 19-year-old is going will take part in the NHL's skill competition later this month. Drouin has two goals and 17 points in 33 games this season. He's been moved up and down Tampa's lineup throughout the season, so it's hard to get a gauge on his fantasy value for the rest of the 2014-15 season.

Jonathan Drouin is looking forward to Tuesday's game at Montreal.

"Obviously it's the team I watched when I was young," said Drouin. "It should be exciting, my family will be in town. There's going to be a lot of memories." The rookie forward has two goals and 13 assists in 31 games this season. He's still learning to play at the NHL level, but he believes he is making progress.

Jonathan Drouin (illness) is now fully recovered and will play Monday night against Toronto.

Drouin will line up on the wing with Steven Stamkos and Cedric Paquette in his usual spot on the top line for Tampa Bay. The 19-year-old rookie has only scored two goals but has chipped in 12 assists in 27 games this season. He should pick up his point production paired up with sniper Steven Stamkos though.

Jonathan Drouin (illness) will probably play on Monday.

Drouin said that he's ready while Lightning coach Jon Cooper was a bit less definitive by saying that there was "a good chance." Drouin missed Saturday's game, which led to Steve Stamkos playing on a line with Brett Connolly. If Drouin returns on Monday, then Connolly will probably be taken off of the top line.

Jonathan Drouin (illness) missed Sunday's practice.

He rode the stationary bike and will try to participate in Monday's morning skate. Drouin sat out Saturday's game due to an illness. For now, he is expected to return no later than Wednesday in Buffalo, but he isn't projected to play Monday night.

It doesn't appear that Jonathan Drouin has contracted the mumps.

It looks like he has a garden-variety flu. It is not clear if Drouin will be sufficiently recovered to play Monday against Toronto and the fact that he is not practising Sunday morning does not bode well for his return. For now we would keep Drouin on reserve and check back with us on Monday as to his condition.

Jonathan Drouin is not participating in Tampa's practice Saturday morning.

Apparently Drouin felt ill. The team is hoping that he has not contracted the mumps. Drouin's spot on the Steven Stamkos line is being filled by Cedric Paquette. As soon as we know more about Drouin's condition we will forward it on.

Jonathan Drouin is getting some ice time on the Lightning's first power-play unit.

He replaced Ryan Callahan in practice Thursday and for parts of Friday night's game against New Jersey. Needless to say, if Drouin can continue to log time with Steven Stamkos and company on the top unit, it will be a big boost to his fantasy value.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 11:33:00 AM

Jonathan Drouin set up a goal by Steve Stamkos in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Philadelphia.

The rookie forward was moved up to Tampa Bay's top line in the contest. Drouin has two goals and 13 points in 24 games this season, but if he can stick on a scoring line then his fantasy value increases dramatically in standard leagues.

Jonathan Drouin is expected to skate on Tampa's top line Tuesday night in Philadelphia.

Drouin-Stamkos-Callahan, now that's a formidable line who have scored a combined 30 goals and 69 points so far this season. Look for them to do some damage in Philly.
