After missing the past six games due to a head injury, Jonathan Drouin will return to the Montreal Canadiens’ lineup for Tuesday’s game against the New York Rangers.
Drouin was off to a good start for the 2021-22 campaign, posting two goals and five assist for a total of seven points in 11 games. He should immediately look to help turn the season around for the Canadiens, who are off to a much slower start than anticipated.
Per the Montreal Canadiens on Twitter, forward Jonathan Drouin has gone to the hospital for further evaluation after taking a puck to the head.
Drouin's condition will be worth monitoring closely over the next few days. Depending on the severity of the injury, it could impact his availability against New York and Vegas later this week.
Jonathan Drouin will sit out for Monday's game against the Washington Capitals.
Drouin has been out with a wrist injury since Nov. 15 and it is possible he may be able to return sometime in early February. He has seven goals and 15 points through 19 contests in 2019-20.

Drouin has not played since the middle of November after having to undergo wrist surgery. He will still need to miss time and is expected to be back within two-three more weeks.
Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin will miss approximately eight weeks after undergoing wrist surgery today.
Drouin was injured in the Canadiens 5-2 win over Washington Friday. The team claims the wrist injury was not related to a ferocious hit he took from Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin. It's a tough blow for fantasy owners, although suitable replacements should be available as free agency. Drouin finished tied for third in points for the Canadiens in 2018-19.
