Recently, it was reported that Jonathan Drouin was unexpectedly absent from today's practice session.

Initially, we were unsure of the reason, speculating it might have been due to a treatment day. However, it turns out the cause was entirely different.

Jonathan Drouin Missed A Team Meeting And Will Suffer The Consequences


Head coach Martin St-Louis disclosed the following:

"Jonathan Drouin remained at the hotel as he was late for the team meeting this morning. He may be excluded from tomorrow's match, but Martin St-Louis has not confirmed this."

St-Louis emphasized the importance of adhering to this team rule, calling it "non-negotiable."

"Martin St-Louis mentions that Jonathan Drouin missed a team meeting, resulting in him not being allowed to practice today and potentially not playing tomorrow. He labeled it as 'non-negotiable'."

Following a 9-5 loss to the Florida Panthers, it makes sense that St-Louis would enforce discipline for missing a meeting.

It seems that Drouin may have fallen out of favor with his head coach.
