A surprising rumor is confirmed about Jonathan Drouin which says a lot about him

During the Montreal Canadiens' last game against the Arizona Coyotes, many fans and journalists thought they noticed that forward Jonathan Drouin had invited defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere to throw down the gloves after his brutal hit on Juraj Slafkovsky.

Some rumors mentioned that Drouin only went to pass a message to defend his young teammate, others mentioned that the latter really wanted to fight against the Coyotes' defenseman.

We now have the end of the story, as the Quebecer confirmed during his most recent press conference that he had indeed invited Gostisbehere for a little dance at center ice. However, that's as far as it went.

"I didn't see the check. I only saw Slaf on the floor. For once, he was my size. I've been in a fight before in junior, but it hadn't gone my way." - Jonathan Drouin

It says a lot about the culture that is currently taking hold in the Habs' locker room, but it also says a lot about Drouin's commitment to his team. While many people criticize the involvement of number 27, he has definitely proven that he is committed to his team.

In fact, he should be the CH's second center tonight, as he had to fill that role during the last game as well. He's really excited about this opportunity to showcase his offensive skills.
