It has been a hard week for Montreal Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin. After missing two games against the Detroit Red Wings due to a minor lower-body injury, something much more severe hit before Tuesday's game against the St. Louis Blues

Drouin, who was out with the flu, has been skating Thursday and today, and is said to be ready to return to action on Saturday, when the Habs will face the Edmonton Oilers. 

Speaking of which, Drouin explained that his flu symptoms were quite similar to the ones Connor McDavid suffered earlier, as both players lost around six pounds each with the virus. 

The Habs were not able to win the last two games, but surely hope to get back on track against the struggling Oilers. 

Drouin, who has recorded five goals and 17 points in 25 games with the Habs, will hope to help his team get back in the win column.
