Montreal Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin returned to the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 24-year-old has been out of the lineup since Nov. 15 after having wrist surgery. In 19 games this season, he has seven goals and 15 points.

Defenceman Xavier Ouellett will also make his season debut playing on the third pairing with Marco Scandella. The 26-year-old was recalled on Feb. 6 from the AHL’s Laval Rocket after scoring nine goals and 24 points in 39 games.
