Disappointing statement regarding Jonathan Drouin

Published November 3, 2022 at 10:50

According to many, Jonathan Drouin has been a disappointment since the beginning of the season.

The forward has only picked up two assists in seven games and it has to be said that he has been rather invisible on the ice. One could find all sorts of excuses that in recent seasons, Drouin has suffered his share of injuries but as reported by David St-Jean, of, there would be another reason for the poor start to the season of number 27.

While appearing on BPM Sports, former NHL defenseman Philippe Boucher made a rather earth-shattering statement about Drouin's work habits during the summer season.

At the beginning of the season, he was in training camp. In the summer, he wasn't working out

Now, the intensity goes up a little bit and he's not able to keep up." - Philippe Boucher

"He works hard in practice, but he took it easy during the summer so It's hard to make up for."

It must be said that Drouin also became a father during the summer, but it remains that his performance since the beginning of the year does not meet the expectations of the organization. Same sound of bell on the side of the fans who hoped to see Drouin flourish under Martin St-Louis, after being limited to only 34 games in 2021-2022.

Without being too wrong, this is probably Jonathan Drouin's last moments in a Habs uniform because he will become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Meanwhile, in Tampa Bay, Mikhail Sergachev is off to a great start with the Lightning with seven points in nine games and an average of 22 minutes per game.
