5E Out of the Abyss - No Drizzt afterall?

So I have been thumbing through my copy of Out of the Abyss and I was initially concerned that Drizzt would be in the spotlight too much, but now after browsing the highlights and stuff, I don't see one mention of him outside of the Forward by Perkins? Did I miss something here? Did WotC decide against injecting him into the story?

He only shows up on one of the random encounter tables. Very small percentage chance of that happening. That's it. No need for him to show up at all.

I think there was a bunch of speculation because it was stated he made an appearance and then there was a bunch of vague talk about how a certain renegade drow was causing problems.

That certain renegade drow is in actuality a drow male wizard named Gromph Baenre and not a dual wielding scimitar mad man.

Dang. Well there goes my plan of secretly joining the demons and betraying Drizzt, turning him over to the demon lords or a long and painful death with a side dish of reaching emotional closure myself ;)

It's true, it's on page 28.

Spoiler below:

There is a 25% chance that a gas spore contains a fragmented memory of a beholder and there is a 25% chance that this fragment is of a drow ranger with two gleaming scimitars and a quadrupedal black beast.

Unsurprisingly, the staff at WotC and Green Ronin actually knows what they're doing and isn't going to make the party the sidekicks of an established character.

Wow, what's with all the hate? He is the most iconic character in D&D history. This is pretty much a fact.
Because as DMs we are sick of seeing a Drizzt clone in every campaign we run. Or the people who insist on playing Drizzt himself. We can love the character in the book, we don't need 10 of him running around in our games. Fanboyism is annoying.

Yeah but no need to put the hate on the guy himself. Anyway does he get stats in the book. Also can I have the slight spoiler of his CR if he does have stats and the CR's of the Demon Lords from weakest to strongest..

He gets nothing. He is not part of the story at all.
