Strome scored the game-winning goal Sunday against Boston.
It was a terrific shot from Strome, who buried a feed from new linemate Leon Draisaitl early in the third period. The 24-year-old has put a slow start in Edmonton behind him and has been producing steadily of late. Strome has managed two goals and seven points in his last eight contests, making him worth looking at in deeper formats. His power-play gig and strong shooting ability could go a long way if the Oilers find a way to get their season back on track.
Strome recorded two assists during Wednesday's 6-2 victory over the Red Wings.
The helpers give Strome a goal and five points in the last six games. The 24-year-old forward could get some favorable matchups on a third line with Mike Cammalleri and Jesse Puljujarvi, but he's yet to become a consistent enough scorer in an Oilers uniform to give him much fantasy value in standard formats.
Strome had an assist in Edmonton's eight-goal win over Vegas on Tuesday.
That gives Strome points in back-to-back games, which could be interpreted as the 24-year-old finally starting to contribute in Edmonton. However, his underlying numbers aren't encouraging. Despite the lopsided scoring totals, Strome didn't manage to take a single shot. He has just three shots in the last four games. He remains an inconsistent player who isn't seeing a ton of ice time.
Strome assisted on Edmonton's lone goal in Sunday's loss to the Capitals.
Strome continues to be underwhelming. His 17-goal rookie season feels very far in the past right now. If he doesn't put up points in a game, he's not regularly contributing much. He's averaging two shots per game and has totaled two goals and four assists through 17 contests.
The Oilers suffered a fourth consecutive loss, but it wasn't due to a lack of effort from Strome, who was credited with six shots on goal. The 24-year-old is locked into a top-six role and skating on the first power-play unit with Connor McDavid, where he registered his tally Tuesday. These were the first two points of his Oilers career, but he's been firing plenty of pucks on net and you could tell he was due. There's potential for Strome to be a very impactful fantasy player in Edmonton, so if he sticks in the top six and builds off this multi-point effort, the former 50-point-getter is worth monitoring.
