Jonathan Drouin went incognito.

The big-ticket addition to the Montreal Canadiens took to his new surroundings over the weekend, doing so undercover as he quizzed Habs' supporters on how the new face would perform this season.

But much to Drouin's chagrin, he wasn't totally unrecognizable in the hockey hotbed, with many Canadiens fans picking out their new star.

Montreal acquired the Quebec-born Drouin from the Lightning in a June trade that sent up-and-coming defenseman Mikhail Sergachev to Tampa Bay.

A former QMJHL star, Drouin spent parts of the last three seasons with the Lightning after a three-year run with the Halifax Mooseheads. He scored 105 points in 49 games with the Mooseheads in 2012-13, en route to being selected third overall in that year's draft.

Drouin tallied a career-high 53 points in 73 games with the Lightning last season, and if he can meet some of the lofty projections set out by the locals he met, Drouin will be off to a great start in Montreal.
