Pat Kane and Daniel Briere were good comparisons, but I don't think he has the speed those players do.
I don't like the Kane and Brière comparison since Drouin is much less of a sniper than the other two. The biggest similarity between Drouin and those two, is their ability to be evasive and dangle through traffic despite their size. Other than that, Drouin plays a more cerebral game than Kane, pretty similar to a Giroux. That is why Giroux would be my comparison for him.
