Stralman has been cold offensively lately and is pointless over his last 10 games. Florida is 4-4-2 over that span.
Despite the lack of scoring, the veteran blueliner and first-year Panther is still contributing in other ways with nine hits and 13 blocked shots over the same 10-game span. With 96 blocks on the year, Stralman is only four away from his career high set two years ago in Tampa Bay and has averaged a hearty 21:04 of ice time. Stralman is second on the team in both categories behind Noel Acciari (103 blocks) and Aaron Ekblad (22:59).
Stralman scored the game-winning goal in Monday's 5-3 victory over the Sharks.
The blueliner was the trailer on a rush led by Jonathan Huberdeau, and Stralman made no mistake when Huberdeau found him in the slot, ringing the puck in off the post in the top corner.

Stralman set up Vincent Trocheck's goal at 15:52 of the third period. The helper snapped a seven-game drought for the Swedish blueliner, who now has 17 points in 48 games.

They're his first goals of the season. Stralman is headed for his first 30-plus point season since 2015-16. But he's not getting power-play time, so that limits his value, even in deep formats.
Stralman collected an assist in a 5-4 overtime win against the Ducks on Thursday.
That is Stralman's seventh helper of the season through 22 games. The 33-year-old was brought in by the Panthers to provide stability on the back end, but he's been pretty mediocre defensively thus far, posting a minus-7 rating on the year.

It was the first multi-point game since last February for Stralman, who isn't much of an offensive defenseman these days. The 33-year-old still logs enough ice time to be able to chip in on occasion, but he's failed to reach the 20-point plateau in each of the last two seasons.
Stralman picked up an assist, three shots, two hits and three blocks in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders on Saturday.

Stralman (lower body) is healthy and skating at training camp, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Stralman missed 35 games last season, including sitting out the first round of the playoffs with a lower-body injury. However, he had gone rather injury-free prior to last season, skating in at least 73 games in five of his last six campaigns. The 33-year-old joins the Panthers after spending five years with the Lightning. At one point a steady offensive producer, Stralman saw his point totals steadily decline during his time with Tampa Bay. He's no longer an attractive fantasy option at this stage in his career.
Stralman signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Panthers on Monday.
Stralman cashed in on a weak blue line free agent class, actually getting a $1 million raise in annual salary compared to his last contract while joining a Florida team that's been extremely active in free agency. He's served as a steady defensive presence for the in-state rival Lightning over the past few years, but Stralman's more of a shut down type than an offensive force. He hasn't scored more than 22 points in any of the past three seasons and will turn 33 years old in August.
Stralman will likely need to take a pay cut to re-sign with Tampa, reports Tampa Bay Times.
Stralman's $4.5 million salary in 2018-19 made him the third-highest paid defender, yet he posted some of his lowest offensive numbers since 2012-13. And he played in just 47 games this season. Stralman was often the odd man out when it came to the defensive rotation that coach Jon Cooper employed -- he never really had a regular partner this season. He, Dan Girardi and Braydon Coburn are all unrestricted free agents, and the Bolts won't be able to ink all three, especially with the big contract that Brayden Point will be signing. Stralman would be valuable in another run for the Cup, but the almighty dollar will dictate if that opportunity comes with Tampa or another squad. Regardless, his fantasy best-before-date is well behind him.
Stralman (lower body) was never able to return to the lineup before the Lightning were swept out of the playoffs.
Stralman suited up in just two of the final 18 games of the season due to the lower-body injury. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, teams will likely have some injury concerns about the 32-year-old, due to the fact that he suited up in just 47 games this season. Stralman has seen his point totals decline each year since he's been with Tampa Bay, producing just two goals and 17 points in 2018-19. Stralman has proven he can still be an effective defenseman, but his time with the Bolts could be over, due to the team dealing with major players --Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov -- in line for massive deals this offseason.
Stralman (lower body) will miss Game 4 versus the Blue Jackets.
Stralman's lower-body injury will force him to miss at least one more contest and could mean he's done for the season if the Lightning can't come up with a road win Tuesday. The veteran blueliner collected 17 points and posted a plus-12 rating during the regular season, but his absence should allow Braydon Coburn to remain among the defensive pairings.
Stralman (lower body) will not suit up for Sunday's Game 3 matchup against Columbus, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Stralman will be on the sidelines alongside fellow blueliner Victor Hedman who is dealing with an undisclosed injury. He is in doubt to suit up in Game 4 on Tuesday, though it is still a remote possibility.
