Lightning's Drouin sent to AHL for conditioning stint

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin was reassigned to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League for a conditioning assignment Thursday.

Drouin, the third pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, has practiced with the Lightning since training camp ended but has not played in any of their first four games. He missed time in camp with a fractured right thumb and did not play in any preseason games.

Drouin said the thumb is healed but he understands the Lightning's decision.

"It's hard to jump into the NHL after four weeks of no games," Drouin said. "This will be good for my timing and hopefully I can get off to a good start down there so I don't come back here and have a bad game right away."
