Yzerman says Lightning still looking to trade Drouin

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman says the suspension of Jonathan Drouin will not change efforts to trade the disgruntled forward.

Drouin was suspended indefinitely without pay on Wednesday for missing a minor league game. The third overall pick in the 2013 draft asked to be traded in November.

Drouin has six goals and 34 assists in 89 NHL games. He's been slowed by injuries this season.

Yzerman said there has been significant interest in Drouin, but that no deal was imminent. The GM said Thursday that the team will trade Drouin if there's a deal that's good for the Lightning.
