Player’s Perspective: Drouin Breaks Down Game-Winning Assist (+)



Avalanche Drouin

There have been a handful of times this season where Jonathan Drouin has reminded everyone that he was once the third overall pick in the NHL draft. The sweet hands and the incredible vision are still there, and the Colorado Avalanche have certainly gotten their money’s worth this season, considering he’s spent a large portion of the season on the top line while making close to league minimum.

In Sunday night’s win over the Arizona Coyotes, Jonathan Drouin made a spectacular play on the game-winning goal. Instead of shooting it from the slot, he sent a quick one-touch pass to Devon Toews, who had all the time in the world to bury the winner.

I talked to Drouin this morning about the play, and what he saw. Let’s just say he was ready for the way the Coyotes wanted to defend the play.
