Playing careerEdit

Strome started to gain attention as a minor midget hockey player with the Toronto Marlboros of the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL),[3] where he was named the league's Player of the Year for the 2012–13 season.[4]

Strome was drafted second overall by the Ontario Hockey League (OHL)'s Erie Otters in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection,[5] and has played with the Otters since the 2013–14 OHL season.[6] On March 25, 2015, Strome won the 2015 OHL scoring title, narrowly beating-out fellow 2015 NHL Entry Draft prospect Mitch Marner; Erie teammate and eventual first draft pick Connor McDavid finished third.[7][8] Along with winning the scoring title, Strome set the Otters team record for most points in a single season, narrowly edging former linemate Connor Brown. On May 22, 2017, in the Memorial Cup round robin, Strome scored a tournament single-game record seven points (four goals and three assists), leading the Otters to a 12–5 win over the Saint John Sea Dogs.[9]

Arizona CoyotesEdit

Strome was drafted third overall by the Arizona Coyotes in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. On July 6, 2015, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Arizona.[10]

In his NHL debut, on October 18, 2016, Strome collected his first NHL point.[11][12] On November 20, it was announced that Strome would be sent back to the Erie Otters of the OHL.[13]

During the 2017–18 season, Strome made the Coyotes' final roster out of training camp. On October 9, 2017, it was announced that Strome was being sent down to the Coyotes' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners, going pointless in two games.[14] However, he was recalled on November 26 after recording a seven-game point streak with the Roadrunners.[15] He scored his first NHL goal on December 2 in a 5–0 win over the New Jersey Devils.[16] Despite this early success, on December 19, 2017, Strome was demoted to the AHL after Arizona's acquisition of Josh Archibald from the Pittsburgh Penguins. On January 4, 2018, Strome was selected for the 2018 AHL All-Star Classic Game.[17][18] Strome was recalled to the NHL on March 20, 2018, where he played, and scored, in a game against the Buffalo Sabres on March 21.[19] On April 4, it was announced that Strome was voted in by coaches, media and players to play on the AHL All-Rookie Team.[20] On April 8, 2018, after the Coyotes failed to make the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, Strome was sent down to the AHL to help the Roadrunners in their Calder Cup playoff run.[21]

Chicago BlackhawksEdit

Strome started the 2018–19 season on the Coyotes' NHL roster.[22] After playing in 20 games, on November 25, 2018, he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks (along with Brendan Perlini) in exchange for Nick Schmaltz.[23] Strome was placed on a line with Alex DeBrincat and Perlini and played on the team's power play unit.[24] On February 11, 2019, Strome was named the Third Star of the Week after scoring two goals and five assists in three games to help the Blackhawks win seven games in a row.[25] He finished the season with 17 goals and 34 assists for the Blackhawks.[26]
