Report: Drouin to make NHL debut against Oilers after all (Updated: It’s official)
It appears the highly skilled Jonathan Drouin, Tampa Bay’s first-round, third-overall pick from 2013, will make his much anticipated NHL debut on Monday after all.
That’s according to a report just moments ago (9:11 p.m. ET) from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune. According to the report, Alex Killorn is out of the lineup.

It was reported earlier in the day that Drouin, recently recalled from a conditioning stint in the American Hockey League, would not play against the Edmonton Oilers.
Drouin was recalled from Syracuse on Sunday.
