Drouin set a new career high for assists in a season despite playing eight fewer games and missing Nathan MacKinnon (NHL Colorado) and Martin Frk (AHL Grand Rapids). He does have potential 2014 first rounder Nikolaj Ehlers next to him, and Ehlers had a hat trick (natural) Saturday for the second night in a row. Drouin assisted on all three goals. Ehlers, a Denmark native who has drawn comparisons to Drouin, is up to 43 goals and 91 points and a plus-56 rating in his rookie season.
