Jonathan Drouin received quite a promotion at practice this morning!

The Habs held a practice this noon, the day after their 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. Dominique Ducharme didn't look like he was laughing last night, following those three losses in four games on the West Coast.

With Brendan Gallagher, Jeff Petry and Mathieu Perreault injured and Caufield demoted, Dom Ducharme had no choice but to shuffle his cards at practice. Jonathan Drouin was back at center, which is a nice surprise. Remember that he won a big offensive zone face-off yesterday, which led to a Mike Hoffman goal on the power play.

Check out the trios:

Mattias Norlinder was officially back at the Habs practice this morning. He was the seventh defenseman on the roster.

Marc-Antoine Godin talked about the possibility of Norlinder playing games with the Habs. Montreal's defense is currently banged up and deficient, so it wouldn't be surprising if he could get some games under his belt.

We can't say that Dom Ducharme isn't trying to find the miracle cure to get his team back on track.
