An important change for Jonathan Drouin

An important change for Jonathan Drouin

MISE À DAY

Montreal Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin wants to leave behind his past problems and he will enter the next season under the sign of renewal, which implies a change of number. < /p>

Indeed, the Quebecer has abandoned 92 in favor of 27, said the Habs on his Twitter account on Friday. As a result, he opted for the number he sported during his time with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Drouin played in Florida from 2014 to 2017 before being traded to the Habs through the trade sending Mikhail Sergachev to the “Bolts”.

In Montreal, defender Alexander Romanov was the last holder of the 27; he was passed on to the New York Islanders on July 7. Before him, Karl Alzner, Alex Galchenyuk and Rene Bourque were the three previous owners of the number that Alex Kovalev wore from 2004 to 2009.

Other well-known names connected to the bib include Shayne Corson and Mathieu Schneider, without forgetting Frank Mahovlich.
