Despite missing the first few games of the year recovering from a thumb injury, Drouin is going to be a force to be reckoned with. Before this season he was highly thought of to be the best prospect outside of the NHL. He proved last season in the QMJHL that his season alongside MacKinnon was no fluke and Tampa Bay Lightning fans are really excited to see him suit up with Steven Stamkos.

Drouin’s puck possession skills are unmatchable combined with his nose of offence makes him very difficult to contained. Pairing him with Stamkos almost makes it unfair.
