</div></div> Jonathan Drouin (born March 28, 1995)[1] is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger currently playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL). After a stellar 2012–13 season with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL)'s Halifax Mooseheads, in which he was named CHL Player of the Year and won the Memorial Cup, Drouin was selected by the Lightning in the first round, third overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.[2]

Playing careerEdit

Halifax MooseheadsEdit

Drouin was selected second overall by the Halifax Mooseheads in the 2011 QMJHL Entry Draft.[3] After starting the 2011–12 season at the Midget AAA level with the Lac St. Louis Lions, it was announced on December 9, 2011, that Drouin would join the Mooseheads.[4] In his first QMJHL game, against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Drouin recorded two assists, including a set-up of the game-winning goal.[5] Drouin was also a key member of Halifax's 2012 playoff success, most notably scoring the overtime winning goal in Game 7 against the Quebec Remparts.[6]

On November 7, 2012, Drouin represented Team QMJHL in Game 2 of the Subway Super Series against Russian junior players; he scored a goal and added three assists.[7] Drouin missed the first game of the series due to a foot injury.[8] At the conclusion of the 2012–13 season, Drouin was named the CHL Player of the Year.[9] He would continue to be an integral player for the Mooseheads during the 2013 playoffs, helping the team win the President's Cup and the 2013 Memorial Cup.

On June 30, 2013, after his highly-successful season, Drouin was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round, third overall in the NHL entry draft picks. Days later, on July 5, he was signed to a three-year contract by the Tampa Bay Lightning.[10] Drouin, however, was cut from the Lightning roster at the beginning of the 2013–14 season, returning to the Mooseheads for the QMJHL season.[11]

Tampa Bay LightningEdit

During the Lightning's 2014–15 training camp, Drouin sustained an injury.[12] Days later, on September 9, 2014, the Lightning announced that Drouin would miss three-to-four weeks with a slight fracture in his thumb.[13] On October 16, Drouin was assigned to Tampa Bay's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, on a conditioning stint. The rehabilitation assignment was initially slated for a maximum of two weeks, though it was stated that he could be recalled prior to that timeline.[14] Just three days later, however, on October 19, the Lightning recalled Drouin from his conditioning assignment with the Crunch; he registered one goal, two assists and a +4 plus-minus rating during his AHL stint.[15]

On October 20, Drouin made his NHL debut against the Edmonton Oilers.[16] The following day, on October 21, he picked up his first NHL assist on a Valtteri Filppula goal in Tampa Bay's 2–1 overtime victory over the Calgary Flames.[17] He then scored his first NHL goal on October 24 against goaltender Ondřej Pavelec of the Winnipeg Jets.[18]
