Strome scored the overtime winner in Saturday's season-ending, 4-3 win over Pittsburgh. He finishes the season with 19 goals and 35 points in 81 games between the Oilers and Rangers.
Strome came to life after getting traded to the Big Apple, recording 33 points in 63 games with the Rangers after a dreadful start that saw him notch only one goal and one assist in 18 games for the Oilers. Originally drafted fifth overall by the Islanders in 2011, Strome's career hasn't quite lived up to that lofty draft billing, but he's a reliable middle-six center whose fantasy arrow could start pointing up if the Rangers can put some quality wingers around him.
Strome scored the winner in overtime in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Toronto.
So, he has a goal in each of his last two games and three points in his last four games. Strome doesn't have much fantasy value, but he sure played hero Saturday.
Strome provided an assist on Neal Pionk's lone goal for the Rangers in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Flames.
Strome is up to 26 points in 70 games between the Oilers and Rangers this year, 23 of which have come with New York. Strome is shooting a career-high 19 percent this season, but the point production is in line with his usual level of 30 points per season over the last three years.
Strome scored two goals and an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Devils.
It's only his second multi-point performance of the season, but both of them have come in the last eight games. Strome, the fifth-overall pick in the 2011 draft, never found his footing in Edmonton, but he's starting to show signs of life with the Rangers, racking up six goals and 12 points in the last 14 contests.
Strome scored twice Saturday in a 5-2 victory over the Devils.
Strome has never lived up to the promise of his draft position or his 50-point sophomore season. And this year is the same. But we'll give credit where it is due. Strome has seven points (three goals, four assists) in his last seven games. The Rangers will be looking for him to step up if they trade Kevin Hayes and Mats Zuccarello. He might just give you some fantasy value off the wire as the season closes.
Strome drew an assist on Jimmy Vesey's game-winning goal in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
The assist ended a nine-game drought for Strome, and the forward is now up to 14 points in 54 games this season after Sunday's performance. Outside of deeper leagues, the 25-year-old should not be relied upon regularly in fantasy.
Strome failed to record a point or shot while adding two blocks over 17:38 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Carolina.
Strome was held off the scoresheet while six of his teammates racked up multiple points, but his 17:38 of ice time was good for second among the Rangers' forward ranks. The trade acquisition has enjoyed a bump in ice time with Kevin Hayes (upper body) out of the lineup, and Strome has found some recent success with four goals in the past eight games. Hayes is aiming to return Thursday against the Blackhawks, however, so Strome's time in a top-six role could be coming to an end.
Strome didn't record a point or shot in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks, but he did dish out five hits to go with two PIM in 7:51 of ice time.
Relegated to a fourth-line role, Strome threw his body around but didn't make an impact offensively. With the Rangers back to full health up front, Strome's role has become too small to rely on him outside the deepest of formats.
Strome recorded an assist in Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Islanders.
Strome's first point with the Rangers had to feel extra sweet coming against one of his former teams. The Islanders' first-round (fifth overall) selection in the 2011 draft, Strome hasn't reached 35 points since notching 50 in his sophomore season, but hopefully another change of scenery is what he needs after a move to Edmonton failed to reignite his career.
Strome will make his Rangers debut against the Panthers on Saturday, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Strome was acquired from the Oilers in exchange for Ryan Spooner on Friday, but he's already ready to rock with his new team. Mats Zuccarello (lower body) will miss the contest, which paves the way for Strome to see power-play time right out of the gate. He should be eager for a fresh start after recording a mere two points over his first 18 games this season.
Strome was flipped from the Oilers to the Rangers in a swap for Ryan Spooner on Friday.
Strome has a mere two points in 18 outings this season, despite recording 14:25 of ice time per game. The center was seeing time on the power play with the Rangers but has zero points to show for it. If Strome gets a top-six assignment with Chris Kreider and Vladislav Namestnikov, he could quickly find his way out of his season-long slump.
Strome (groin) is active for Saturday's game against the Devils in Sweden, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports. He'll center Jujhar Khaira and Jesse Puljujarvi on the third line.
Strome sustained a groin injury in the preseason, but his status for the season opener was never in doubt. Formerly with the Islanders, the fifth overall pick from 2011 registered 13 goals and 21 assists without missing a single game for the Oilers in 2017-18, his debut season with the Western Conference club.
Strome (groin) is not active for Saturday's preseason game versus the Flames.
Strome posted 13 goals and 21 assists over 82 games for the Oilers in 2017-18. He's sure to be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's regular-season opener versus the Devils.
Strome suffered a minor groin injury but should be ready for Opening Night, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
While coach Todd McLellan didn't provide any specifics, it appears Strome could miss the final three preseason contests. In 82 games last season, the center notched 34 points, his third season hitting the 30-point mark. While he will likely slot into a third-line role, the Ontario native should still log time on the second power-play unit, giving him solid mid-range fantasy value.
Strome collected a power-play assist Sunday in a 5-3 road loss to the Jets.
This was a simple perimeter passing play between Strome and Drake Caggiula, with goal-scorer Ethan Bear screaming a one-timer past Connor Hellebuyck. Strome will look to build off his 34-point output (13 goals, 21 assists) from the 2017-18 campaign.
Strome signed a two-year contract extension with the Oilers taking him through the 2019-20 season. According to CapFriendly, he'll make $3.1 million annually.
After spending his first four seasons employed by the Islanders, Strome recorded 13 goals and 21 assists over a full schedule with the Oilers in 2017-18. That level of production was closely aligned with his career averages, as was his level of playing time at 15:13 per contest. The 24-year-old winger receives a $600,000 annual raise to stay in Edmonton.
Edmonton has offered Strome a qualifying offer for the 2018-19 season.
The young center tallied 34 points in 82 games while playing in Oil Country in 2017-18. Edmonton appears to be committed to Strome despite the unfair comparisons to Jordan Eberle. The streaky skater ended this past season with only three points in the last 15 games. Strome is only worth monitoring in daily formats and the deepest of leagues.
Strome has remained hopeful of the Oilers' chances of contending next season, the Edmonton Sun reports.
Despite the regression Strome and his fellow teammates have endured this season, the 24-year-old center remains optimistic. "Look at Winnipeg and Tampa Bay, they both missed the playoffs and now they're a possible Stanley Cup final matchup," Strome said. "I'm not saying that's us, but we have a good hockey team, we have a good thing going. We have some of the best players in the world here. There is going to be a lot of success in Edmonton moving forward." Sadly, Strome will always be compared to Jordan Eberle for the trade that forced the two men to swap teams in June 2017. While Edmonton appears to be on the wrong end of the seemingly lop-sided trade for now, the Ontario native still holds value in deep leagues looking forward.
Strome scored a goal and collected an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 victory over Carolina.
Strome had gone six games without registering a point before collecting a pair in this one. The 24-year-old center scored an unassisted goal midway through the first period then capped off the night by assisting on Jesse Puljujarvi's goal in the third. While the offensive output was encouraging, Strome hasn't been consistent enough to be relied on outside the deepest of leagues.
Strome admitted his frustration with having the worst power-play unit in the league, the Edmonton Sun reports.
The Oilers haven't scored a power-play goal since Feb. 7 against the Kings. "We have good players on our team, we just have to bear down," said Strome. "We haven't scored a power-play goal on the road in like a month." The 24-year-old center also has a 10-game goal drought himself -- he last registered a point on Mar. 5. While Strome has already eclipsed his point total from 2016-17 (30), he is best left on the wire for now.
