Fresh news about Jonathan Drouin and the Avalanche

Published May 6, 2024 at 4:11 PM

The Colorado Avalanche easily won their first round of the playoffs, but an important player was noticeably absent. Jonathan Drouin is seriously injured.

Indeed, the St-Agathe native has not yet made his debut in the 2024 playoffs. It's really a shame, because he had a very good season and could increase the value of his next contract by having a good playoff run.

Remember that in 2021, during the Stanley Cup Final with the Canadiens, Drouin was also out of the game. So it's been a long time since he participated in the playoffs.

However, there's excellent news as Jo is traveling with the team to Dallas.

He could possibly play his first game in the 2024 playoffs on Tuesday night, in the first game of the second round between the Avalanche and the Stars.

Drouin will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. He was by far the biggest bargain of the season in the NHL, with 56 points in 79 games. This was his best points haul of his career, while being paid $825,000.

We wish him a speedy recovery and hope he can sign a nice contract this summer, whether it's with Colorado or elsewhere. At 29 years old, there's still plenty of great hockey left in Drouin.
