Tampa Bay Lightning rookie Jonathan Drouin appears to be a healthy scratch tonight against the New York Islanders.

Drouin, 19, has a goal and seven assists in 12 games while averaging 14 minutes of ice time. He has just one assist in his last three games.

Cedric Paquette is believed to be taking Drouin’s spot in the lineup.

Ondrej Palat, who was a game-time decision tonight for the Lightning, will play.
