UFA, Russia — Jonathan Drouin says he won’t think about the 2013 NHL entry draft for a couple of weeks.

But he might get NHL scouts at the 2013 world junior thinking harder about it.

Drouin, expected to be a top pick in the draft, undoubtedly will work himself into more serious consideration if he keeps playing like he did in Canada’s opening 9-3 win against Germany.
