Halifax Mooseheads left-winger Jonathan Drouin is practising in a non-contact jersey and is still being described as “day-to-day.”
The 17-year-old has missed the past three games with an upper body injury after taking a hit in the Mooseheads’ Oct. 6 game against the Saint John Sea Dogs.
“He’s day-to-day, still,” said Mooseheads general manager Cam Russell.
Chances are the Mooseheads want Drouin to get in a contact practice before he plays, so that makes Wednesday’s road game against the P.E.I. Rocket unlikely. They may be targeting Friday’s home game against the Sherbrooke Phoenix for his return.
Drouin, who appeared to be favouring his shoulder after taking the hit, was leading the Mooseheads in scoring prior to the injury with five goals and 10 assists in seven games.
