Happy 19th birthday Jonathan Drouin!

We played together in spring hockey when we were 10 for a tournament. There’s a picture of us on the same team. It’s pretty cool. We just became friends a couple of years ago and spent a lot of time together. I feel like I’ve known the guy for 10 years now. We became pretty close.

The last game of the Memorial Cup, after he made a flip pass over my head, I realized, ‘I don’t know if I’ll ever get a pass like that from a skilled player like that again.’ I love playing with him. I think that moment kind of sunk in that it was a pretty special thing.
