Drouin (ankle) has seven goals, eight assists and a 13.7 shooting percentage over 27 games in 2019-20.
Drouin had an impressive start to the season, recording 15 points and a 17.9 shooting percentage over 17 games before wrist surgery put an end to what was looking like his best season since joining Montreal. He returned from the wrist injury after missing 37 games, but an ankle injury forced him to miss another seven games. He was on the verge of returning when the NHL pressed the pause button on the season due to the coronavirus pandemic. It can't be known if Drouin was taking his offense to another level because of the injury. That will most likely be answered in 2020-21, the first of three remaining years on a six-year deal he inked in 2017.

Drouin (ankle) isn't expected to play Tuesday against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
Drouin will miss a third consecutive contest Tuesday and remains without a timetable for his return to action.

He can be considered out indefinitely until the Canadiens provide another update on his status.
Drouin (ankle) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game versus Carolina.

Drouin will not be in the lineup versus the Rangers on Thursday due to his lingering ankle problem.
Drouin previously missed a Feb. 15 clash with Dallas as a result of his ankle injury and apparently was playing through the issue in his last four outings. Since returning from a wrist injury that cost him 37 games earlier this year, the Quebec native has yet to get onto the scoresheet and is pointless in his last eight appearances. With the 24-year-old sidelined, it could be an opportunity for Artturi Lehkonen or Paul Byron to slot into a top-six role.
Drouin (ankle) will be in the lineup against the Red Wings on Tuesday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

In four contests back from his 37-game absence, Drouin failed to register a point and hasn't scored a goal since Oct. 31 versus Vegas. With Brendan Gallagher (lower body) in doubt Tuesday, Drouin figures to slot into a top-six role and will look to get back onto the scoresheet.
Drouin is dealing with an ankle injury, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Drouin initially suffered a sprained ankle versus the Bruins on Wednesday. He was able to play through it Friday against the Penguins, but couldn't go Saturday versus the Stars.

Drouin has two shots and zero points in the two games since returning from a wrist injury.
It sounds like a slow restart for Drouin, which is natural after he missed 37 games. He had 11:49 of ice time in Saturday's overtime loss to Toronto and followed it up with 13:43 in a loss to the Coyotes on Monday. The presumption should be that he gets more shifts Wednesday against Boston.
Drouin returned to the lineup Saturday after missing 37 games. He had one shot on net, three hits and a minor penalty in a 2-1 overtime win over Toronto.
Drouin had been sidelined since Nov. 15 due to a wrist injury that required surgery. After a few false starts since Montreal's bye week, Drouin was able to give it a go Saturday. He skated on the third line, getting a season-low 11:49 of ice time. That's four-to-five minutes fewer than what Drouin typically plays, so this may have been a soft landing for the formerly injured forward.
Drouin (wrist) will be in the lineup for Saturday's divisional clash with Toronto, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Drouin last played Nov. 15, so he must be chomping at the bit to return.

Drouin (wrist) will be unavailable for Saturday's clash with Toronto, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Drouin will miss his 38th consecutive game due to his wrist injury. The Quebec native won't be reaching the 45-point mark for the first time since 2015-16 when he was with the Lightning. Once cleared to play, the 24-year-old should slot back into a top-six role, especially if the Habs decide to trade away any forwards at the deadline.
Drouin (wrist) won't play Thursday against Anaheim, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Although Drouin won't be available against the Ducks, according to coach Claude Julien, he could be ready to rejoin the lineup Saturday against Toronto or Monday against Arizona. The 24-year-old forward is on injured reserve, so news of his activation will precede his return to game action.
Drouin (wrist) won't be available for Tuesday's road game versus the Devils, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.
Drouin has been skating with the team but will be given more time before making his first appearance in a game since Nov. 15.

Drouin (wrist) skated Sunday morning but won't be ready to play later in the day against Columbus, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

His next opportunity to hit game ice will come Tuesday in New Jersey, with a removal from IR likely to serve as a leading indicator for Drouin's return.
Drouin (wrist) won't suit up against the Sabres on Thursday but will travel with the team.
The fact that Drouin is making the trip is certainly a good sign, as he will be able to get on the ice with his teammates for Thursday's game-day skate.

Drouin (wrist) wore a regular jersey during Tuesday's practice.
Drouin has been skating for over three weeks, but he hadn't received clearance to start taking contact until Tuesday's practice. Now that he's been given the green light to be a full participant at practice, it's safe to assume that he'll be ready to rejoin the lineup sooner rather than later. The 24-year-old was off to a fantastic start prior to undergoing wrist surgery Nov. 18, racking up seven goals and 15 points through the first 19 games of the campaign.
Drouin (wrist) will not suit up for Monday's game against Washington, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
