October 2014 – Drouin’s is recovering quicker than most anticipated he would from his thumb injury. He’s been ruled out of the lineup for the season opener, but don’t expect him to miss much action. Randall Buschmann


September 2014 – Drouin showed up to training camp in Tampa Bay stronger, leaner and more mature. It would appear the extra year in junior really helped. After missing a few days of camp with the mysterious “upper-body injury”, Tampa Bay announced he’d miss three to four weeks due to a fractured right thumb. The injury is not thought to be serious, but Tampa Bay is being extra cautious with their budding superstar. Randall Buschmann


February 2014 – Drouin has continued to improve his play away from the puck, while still producing a staggering amount of points and making everything look almost effortless in the process. He’s posted 18 points in his last nine games playing almost entirely at the center ice position in all situations for Halifax. Despite playing ten less games, he’s already managed to beat his shots on goal total from last season by one. He currently sits fifth in the league in scoring despite playing significantly less games then the players ahead of him. Randall Buschmann

November 2013 – The Canadian Hockey League named Jonathan Drouin Player of the Week (for week 10 ending November 17th) after the Mooseheads forward tallied four goals and 10 points in three games, finishing with a shinny plus-5 rating. He was also dubbed QMJHL First Star of the week for his dominating performance.

November 2013 – Drouin battled a seemingly minor groin issue at the beginning of the season which caused him to miss a few games. He finished October with a very pedestrian(for Drouin’s standards, at least) three goals and 16 points in 10 games. However, Drouin has made up for any perceived short-comings already by posting six goals and 13 points in his last four games. Tampa Bay experimented with Drouin at center dur
