The Tampa Bay Lightning stood pat Monday and did not move Jonathan Drouin ahead of the trade deadline, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

Although Drouin was not involved in a transaction by the deadline, he is still eligible to be traded before the end of the regular season.

Drouin has been front and center in trade speculation since November, when his agent, Allen Walsh, requested a trade from Tampa Bay.

The highly touted 20-year-old forward has not played a game since being suspended by the Lightning after failing to report to a game with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch on Jan. 20.

He recorded two goals and six assists in 19 games for the Lightning earlier this season.
