It's been just over two months since Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin took a personal leave of absence from the team. No matter what Drouin is dealing with, he has a ton of support from the organization, media, and the fans and people should continue to respect his privacy.

In his press conference on Monday, Habs coach Luke Richardson was asked about Jonathan Drouin.

"We've respected Dru's need to have a break. As far as I've heard he's taking some time and getting the help that he needs," adding he believes the players have spoken with Drouin. "He's part of our team even though he's not here." Richardson said to TSN's John Lu.

It's hard not to think about Jonathan Drouin during this playoff run. He had a fairly good season, but his goal scoring wasn't where people expected it to be. He still managed to tally 23 points (2 G, 21 A) in 44 games.

The most important thing at the moment is that Drouin is getting the help he needs, and we hope to see him return to the Canadiens' lineup whenever he feels like he's ready to come back - hopefully in time for training camp.
