Komets left wing P.C. Drouin has 14 goals, 42 points and a minus-3 rating in 60 games. Statistically, it's been his worst season in North America. Overall, it's probably been the worst of his career.
Don't think for a second Drouin isn't aware of his troubles.
"I’ve never had a season like this before," said Drouin, 36. "I’ve had lulls within the season, but for a whole season I’ve never had these kinds of struggles, both physically and mentally. I’m not playing my game. I’m not carrying the puck. I’m not making the plays I used to make. That’s kind of been in my head, in my confidence, and that’s kind of what’s lacking. I’ve got to pick it up and work hard."
Drouin, who has two goals and three points in the last four games, believes things are starting to turn around.
And he vowed to do better in the playoffs.
- Despite rumors to the contrary, Jon Mirasty has the flu, according to Komets president Michael Franke. He has not been called up to the American Hockey League, Franke said.
