Drouin forgot that his blades were taken off his old skates and put onto new ones… when he dressed for practice, he inadvertently laced up the skates without the blades. So when he stepped out on the ice, he wiped out.
Teammates had a good laugh at his expense.
"He stepped on the ice without blades. I don’t think it takes a genius to know you need blades on your skates." – Max Pacioretty on @jodrouin27 😅
