To the surprise of many, in the last few minutes, the verdict fell for Quebec forward Jonathan Drouin, who was finally at the team's practice with a regular jersey!

Everything indicates that he will soon be back in the game, which is great news.

Announcement from the Habs:

"Forward Jonathan Drouin was taking part in his first practice with the team since his name was placed on the injury list on Jan. 21." - Montreal Canadiens



So Drouin did practice with the team and he was wearing a regular jersey.

The CH looks like this today:

HP - Suzuki- Anderson

Hoffman - Dach - Dadonov

Pitlick -Dvorak-Ylonen

Pezzetta - Belzile - Drouin

Matheson - Barron

Xhekaj - Savard

Harris - Kovacevic

Wideman

- Via Andrée-Anne Barbeau, RDS

Drouin is on the fourth line with Alex Belzile and Michael Pezzetta. This bodes very well for his presence in the lineup on Saturday.

"Jonathan Drouin is back in practice and skating on the fourth trio." - Renaud Lavoie

Drouin, 27, has 12 points (no goals) in 28 games this season.


More details to follow.
