Jonathan Drouin justifies his choice


Montreal Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin wants to return to success, and a change of number should at the very least bring back to memory his best moments in his career. < /p>

Present at the organization's annual golf tournament at Club Laval-sur-le-Lac on Monday, the Quebecer left the 92 to find the 27, the bib with which he excelled, especially with the Mooseheads of Halifax, in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

“I'm happy, it's a number I've worn throughout my bantam, midget and junior. I've always liked him and since I've been in Montreal, he was always unavailable. This summer, he was free and I was able to take him,” he mentioned.

However, it will take more to guarantee Drouin a smooth season. after missing his large share of games in recent campaigns.

“I just don't want injuries. In the last three years, I had a good start to the season, then injuries that kept me out of training. I want to stay healthy,” he said.

Drouin has played 105 regular season games and 10 playoff games as of 2019-20.
