Jonathan Drouin News Archive
Drouin had an assist, two shots on net, one hit and won 10 of 16 faceoffs over 16:54 of ice time in Friday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.
Drouin practiced at right wing on a line with Alex Galchenyuk at left wing and Jacob De La Rose at center Tuesday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Drouin had a goal, four shots on net, and three hits in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Drouin, who has played center since he was acquired from Tampa Bay, would be "a better option" on the wing, per Montreal general manager Marc Bergivin, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. "In a perfect world, if we had that No. 1 centre, that guy who can make plays, a high-end centre, (Drouin would) probably be on the wing," said the GM.
Drouin had three shots, one hit and one blocked shot while winning just 2-of-7 draws in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.
