Major Announcement in Colorado: Former Habs Star's Days May Be Numbered

Published October 31, 2023 at 5:50 PM

Many fans were hopeful that Jonathan Drouin would flourish in Colorado, especially given the golden opportunity to start the season on the top line alongside his good friend Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen.

Unfortunately, despite a promising first game, the former Canadiens forward is currently struggling, with a paltry return of just one assist in eight games.

In recent hours, Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar made a significant move. Indeed, the Quebec-native was now practicing with the fourth unit alongside four other forwards.

"The Avalanche lines today.

Arturri Lehkonen -- Nathan MacKinnon -- Mikko Rantanen
Riley Tufte -- Ryan Johansen -- Valeri Nichushkin
Miles Wood -- Ross Colton -- Logan O'Connor

Kurtis MacDermid -- Andrew Cogliano -- Tomas Tatar -- Fredrik Olofsson -- Jonathan Drouin are all on the fourth line, in grey." - Brennan Vogt

Ouch! What sad news for the former CH player!

While some observers had predicted he might reignite his career, possibly reaching the 60-point mark this season, it now looks like Jonathan Drouin will be playing on the team's fourth line or might even be benched.

We sincerely hope he can quickly find his footing with his new team and start contributing offensively again, given his immense talent.
