Jonathan Drouin has had a tumultuous start with his new team, the Colorado Avalanche, falling short of initial expectations, including predictions of a remarkable season.

The 28-year-old Quebecois player initially struggled to find his offensive rhythm, leading to several stints in the press box. However, after a nine-game pointless streak, the former Montreal Canadiens player has regained confidence and is now one of the players most relied upon by his coach, marking a surprising turnaround.

In his last four games, Drouin has collected five points, bringing his total to seven points in his last eight games.




After playing 30 games this season, he has scored four goals and accumulated 13 points. While this may not be an exceptional record, considering his difficult start, it appears he is gradually regaining form.

His recent performances could potentially give a new impetus to his NHL career, and it's encouraging to see him rediscover his joy in playing hockey with the Colorado Avalanche.
