MONTREAL - Forward Jonathan Drouin is the Molson Cup recipient for the month of October.
Drouin was selected second star of the game twice (on October 5 at Buffalo and October 14 against Toronto), and was a third star once (on October 24 against Florida). Phillip Danault, Brendan Gallagher, Charles Hudon, Artturi Lehkonen, Max Pacioretty, Jeff Petry, Carey Price and Shea Weber all earned star of the game nods in October.
In 12 games in October, Drouin led the team with seven assists, nine points (tied with S. Weber) and three powerplay goals (tied with A. Galchenyuk and B. Gallagher).
The 22-year-old forward will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony prior to tonight's game against the Vegas Golden Knights at the Bell Centre
