If the Vegas Golden Knights’ flurry of moves wasn’t enough to satisfy those yearning for more long-term injured reserve (LTIR) machinations, the Montreal Canadiens have probably helped them out. The Canadiens have placed Jonathan Drouin on LTIR, according to PuckPedia. Drouin has been out since a late March contest against the Boston Bruins, and his season was ended by wrist surgery.
Drouin (wrist) was placed on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per PuckPedia. This move frees up the cap space for the Canadiens to activate Carey Price (knee) from LTIR.

Jonathan Drouin’s tenure with the Montreal Canadiens has not been an easy one.

Drouin (wrist) will seek a second opinion regarding his wrist injury, Arpon Basu of The Athletic. Drouin was initially reported to be undergoing surgery, but he'll seek a further opinion before making his decision. That medical consultation will happen after Drouin clears the COVID-19 protocols, having recently been designated a close contact.
Drouin (wrist) will undergo season-ending surgery, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. This is the same wrist injury that kept Drouin out of action for nearly two months. He tried to play through it, but his season is now over. The 26-year-old posted 20 points and 62 shots on net in 34 games -- he has missed at least 10 games in each of the last three campaigns, though he's expected to be ready for training camp ahead of the 2022-23 season.
Drouin will be sidelined indefinitely due to an upper-body injury, the team announced Friday. Drouin was already away from the team due to a COVID-19 close contact and is now facing an extended absence. With approximately five weeks left in the NHL season, it's not impossible that Drouin has played his last game this year. If that's the case, he would end the 2021-22 campaign having tallied six goals and 14 helpers in 34 games, marking his sixth 20-point season in his eight-year career.
Drouin (not injury related) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly. Drouin was a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19, though it's unclear if he has subsequently returned a positive result himself. The 26-year-old will have to clear the virus protocols before he can return to action.
Drouin was sent home Thursday because he was in contact with someone who texted positive for COVID-19. It's safe to assume Drouin will miss Thursday's game versus the Panthers at a minimum. With Drouin unavailable, look for Michael Pezzetta or Mathieu Perreault to draw into the lineup against Florida.
Drouin had three hits over 13:57 of ice time in Saturday's 5-1 win over Ottawa. Drouin returned to action after missing 22 games with a wrist injury, skating on the second line with Rem Pitlick and Mike Hoffman. Drouin, who had 20 points over 32 games prior to his injury, was one of the few bright spots for the Canadiens during the pre-Martin St. Louis portion of the 2021-22 season. It will be interesting to see if the new coach has the same impact on Drouin as he did with many other the Habs.
