Strome signed a two-year, $9 million contract extension with the Rangers on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
The Rangers offered $3.6 million annually in arbitration and Strome's camp was seeking $5.7 million per year, so this deal makes sense for both sides. Strome had his best season yet as a pro in 2019-20, potting 18 goals while setting career highs in assists (49) and points (59) in 70 contests. The 27-year-old pivot will continue to skate on New York's second line alongside the always lethal Artemi Panarin in 2020-21, and he'll also maintain a spot on the Blueshirts' top power-play unit, so he should produce at a similar clip next season.
Strome posted an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Strome managed two assists in the series, which the Hurricanes swept 3-0. The 27-year-old forward broke out with a career-high 59 points (18 goals, 41 helpers) in 70 contests this year.
Strome scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.
The 26-year-old has a seven-game point streak going, racking up four goals and nine points over that stretch. Strome has already reached a new personal best in points on the year with 53, and his 16 goals leaves him three shy of the career-high 19 he potted last season.
Strome dished out a power-play helper in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins.
Strome extended his point streak to five games (two goals, four assists). He's heating back up after a 10-game stretch that featured no goals and just three assists, and Sunday's effort helped Strome reach the 50-point mark for the second time in his career. That's where his production ended with the 2014-15 Islanders, so every point Strome scores from here on out will set a new career mark.
Strome posted a power-play assist and three shots on net in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.
Strome has averaged a career-high 19:32 of ice time per game this year, and the results have been impressive. The 26-year-old has generated 12 goals and 31 assists through 48 games, and he's just seven points shy of a career high in points heading into the All-Star break. Strome's set to be a restricted free agent this summer, and he could be a valuable building block in the Blueshirts' rebuild.
Strome dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Devils.
It was better late than never for Strome, who played a hand in each of the Rangers' last two goals in this one. He helped set up Tony DeAngelo's third goal and fifth point of the game with just under five minutes left in the second period, then fed Jesper Fast on a 2-on-1 for the only goal of the third. Strome only had one season with over 35 points heading into this one, but he's knocking on the door of a point per game with 41 in 43. That production includes five goals and six assists in his last seven games.
Strome had an assist and scored the game-winning goal, finishing with two points in a 5-3 win over Colorado on Tuesday.
Judging by his shooting percentage this season (17.1), one could safely refer to Strome as an opportunistic player. One of Strome's two shots on the night found the back of the net, and the goal would hold up as the game-winner, giving Strome three GWGs in 2019-20. With 39 points in 42 games while averaging a career-best 19:29 per night, Strome is on pace to shatter his previous high for points in a season. The 26-year-old has been a remarkable find for the Rangers.
Strome scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Oilers.
Strome stuffed the stat sheet with three shots on goal, four PIM and a plus-2 rating. The 26-year-old has seven points over his last three games, bringing him up to 11 goals, 26 assists and 66 shots in 39 appearances this year. He's already surpassed the 35 points he had in 81 games between the Rangers and the Oilers in 2018-19 -- the first-round pick from 2011 is making it hard to ignore him in fantasy.
Strome scored two goals and added two assists Saturday in a 5-4 overtime win over Toronto.
Strome has found a home on Broadway and he's taken his game to new heights this season. He has 35 points, including 25 assists, in just 38 games. Strome's previous best was 50 points in 2014-15.
Strome produced an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.
Strome set up the first goal of Artemi Panarin's hat trick, which gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period. Strome has benefited from lining up with Panarin this year -- the former has 27 points (six goals, 21 helpers) in 31 games so far this season. Strome's career high in points is 50, set in 2014-15 with the Islanders. The 26-year-old had appeared to settle into the mid-30s for seasonal point production prior to being bumped up to the Rangers' top line.
Strome had a pair of assists and was plus-2 in Sunday's 5-0 win over Vegas.
Strome set up an even-strength goal by Chris Kreider in the first period and assisted on Jacob Trouba's power-play tally in the middle frame. The 26-year-old is enjoying one of the most consistent seasons of his career, logging six goals and 26 points in 29 games so far. He had 35 points in 81 games last season with Edmonton and the Rangers.
Strome recorded two assists, including one on the power play, in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Panthers.
The 26-year-old is thriving alongside Artemi Panarin on the Rangers' top line as well as on the top power-play unit, and he's headed squarely for a breakout campaign as a result. Strome has found the scoresheet in nine of the last 10 games, and overall he has a stellar five goals and 16 points through 15 games.
Strome registered a power-play goal and an assist to go with three shots in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Detroit.
Strome put the Rangers ahead 3-0 just under nine minutes into the second period with his fifth goal in his last six games. The former first-rounder has been incredibly consistent for the Rangers early in 2019-20, reaching the scoresheet in seven of his last eight games and producing four multi-point performances in that time. His ice time has steadily increased throughout the season and, after scoring a career-high 18 goals for the Rangers last season, Strome has clearly found a home on Broadway.
Strome scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Predators.
His second-period tally gave the Rangers a 2-0 lead and held up as the game-winner. Strome has now hit the scoresheet in six straight games, scoring four goals and nine points during that stretch, as he appears to be solidifying his spot on the Rangers' top line alongside Artemi Panarin.
Strome scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay.
Strome fired his third goal of the season into an empty net with 46 seconds remaining and assisted on Kaapp Kakko's power-play goal midway through the second period. The 2011 first-rounder has had an up-and-down NHL career but is off to a point-per-game start in 2019-20, with three goals and 10 points in 10 games. He did score a career-high 19 goals in 81 games between the Oilers and Rangers last year, so perhaps he's got a 20-goal season in him.
Strome (illness) will play in Sunday's contest against the Bruins, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Strome fortunately did not miss any time while dealing with an apparently minor illness. The 26-year-old is riding a three-game point streak with two goals and four points. He'll skate in his usual middle-six role with some time on the second power-play unit.
Strome missed Saturday's practice due to the flu, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Strome's illness puts his status in question for Sunday's home game against the Bruins. It couldn't come at a worse time, as Strome was hitting his stride with two goals and seven points over the last seven games. According to Stephenson, coach David Quinn expects Strome to be in the lineup Sunday.
Strome scored two goals on two shots to go with a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 6-2 win over Buffalo.
Strome was due for some regression after shooting an unsustainable 22.5 percent en route to 18 goals in 63 games with the Rangers last season, and the career 9.9 percent shooter opened the season on a seven-game goal drought. He channeled his scoring touch from last season in this one, though, giving his team a 3-0 lead with what turned into the game-winning goal in the first period and later restoring the three-goal lead in the third by finishing a 2-on-1 rush with the teams skating 4-on-4.
Strome dished out a helper in Thursday's 5-2 loss to New Jersey.
Strome started the season on the second line, but he was moved down to the third line with Jesper Fast and defenseman-turned-winger Brendan Smith for this one. Despite the demotion, Strome picked up a helper for a second straight game, on a goal that involved all three third-line forwards.
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.
