Jonathan Drouin will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday when the Montreal Canadiens host the Calgary Flames.

The news comes a few hours after Canadiens head coach Claude Julien announced that Drouin was questionable to play in a game for the first time in over a week. The 22-year-old missed the previous three games dealing with a lower-body injury.

In the 25 games for Montreal this season, Drouin has registered five goals and 12 assists, and his 17 points are second-most on the team.

Drouin will have at least two nights to recover as the Canadiens do not play again until Saturday when the Edmonton Oilers head into the Bell Centre.
