Drouin, the third overall pick in this summer’s draft, was held off the ice for the two-day warm up before heading to Lake Placid. As it was, this would’ve been the one chance for him to skate with the rest of Team Canada’s invitees as coach Brent Sutter won’t be bringing any of last year’s World Junior team members (Nathan MacKinnon, Morgan Rielly, and Griffin Reinhart) to New York.
As for Drouin’s foot, it’s merely sore and he’s being kept off the ice as a precaution. Team Canada already knows what kind of player they’ve got in him and there’s no doubt the Lightning are happy to see them not pushing him just to practice.
