Video: Drouin Nets Game Winner For First Pro Goal
Tampa Bay Lightning star prospect Jonathan Drouin scored his first professional goal tonight for the Syracuse Crunch. Drouin is on a conditioning assignment with Syracuse as he’s recovering from a broken right thumb that he sustained in mid-September.
Drouin comes down the wing with speed and gets off a wicked wrister.
Drouin, 19, was drafted third overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft and posted 108 points in 46 games with the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads last season.

Jonathan Marchessault on Drouin: “There’s no wonder he’s the third (pick) overall. Everything I heard was exactly what I saw, It was amazing.”
Jonathan Drouin: “The point of coming here is getting my timing and speed. It went pretty well. The future is looking really good with the Lightning.”
