Stralman scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 6-3 victory over Dallas. Stralman's offensive output has been curtailed this season given his defensive focus, but this was his second multi-point game in his last four outings. Maybe Stralman will sneak in some value in the last week of the season.
Stralman recorded his first multi-point game (one goal and one assist) since Dec. 22 during Monday's overtime win against Chicago. Monday's outburst was likely more of a blip on the radar than a sign of things to come, as Stralman's offensive contributions have been underwhelming this season. He's notched just four goals and 18 points through 66 games. The veteran's 115 shots, 83 blocked shots and 99 hits are modest peripheral contributions, but the 16 PIM and minus-4 rating don't move the needle at all. Overall, it's been a disappointing fantasy campaign, and Stralman shouldn't be owned outside of deep seasonal leagues.
Stralman has been held without a point for 12 straight games. Stralman has been playing the role of crease clearer, so points have been the least of his worry. That's great for the Bolts, but awful for fantasy purposes.
Stralman appeared in his 600th NHL game Thursday. He has played for the Lightning, Rangers, Blue Jackets and Maple Leafs. Stralman has been a steady force on the Bolts back end this season, but points have been hard to come by. He has just one assist in his last 14 games and 15 points in 51 games. Stralman's minus-1 rating this season is his first negative tally in that category since 2010-11. His on-ice value remains high, but his fantasy value is sorely restricted.
Stralman continues to log heavy minutes on the Tampa Bay blue line and has 14 points, including 12 assists, in 40 games. Stralman missed a bit of time due to injury, but the reality is that his production has been on the decline regardless. At this point, he may not hit the 30 point mark. Stralman has value, especially in those that also count hits and blocked shots.
