Canadiens Notebook: Jonathan Drouin starting to shoot puck more often

Jonathan Drouin ranks 14th on the Canadiens in shots this season with only 20 in the first 15 games. That partly explains why he only has one goal, but he also has a team-leading 10 assists to rank fifth on the team in points behind Tyler Toffoli (10-5-15), Jeff Petry (6-9-15), Nick Suzuki (3-9-12) and Josh Anderson (9-2-11). Drouin is also plus-5. “I feel happy about my game,” Drouin said after practice...

That ranks seventh among Canadiens forwards behind Nick Suzuki (18:19), Tyler Toffoli (16:51), Phillip Danault (16:00), Brendan Gallagher (15:15), Jonathan Drouin (15:11) and Tomas Tatar (15:01). ...
