2010-11: Strome played in 65 games for the Niagara Ice Dogs, scoring 33 goals and adding 73 assists for 106 points.  He also picked up 82 penalty minutes on the season.  His point and assist totals placed him third overall in the OHL in those categories.  Strome played for Team Cherry at the 2011 CHL Home Hardware Top Prospects Game.

2011-12: Strome signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Islanders in October 2011 and was with the team out of camp but did not appear in any games before being returned to Niagara for a third OHL season. He also played for Canada at the 2012 U20 World Junior Championship. Strome played 46 games for the IceDogs, missing time due to injury and while he was at the WJC, and scored 30 goals with 38 assists; finishing plus-37 with 47 penalty minutes. Strome was the second-leading scorer for Niagara in the playoffs; scoring 7 goals with 16 assists and was minus-three with a team-high 31 penalty minutes in 20 games as the IceDogs reached the finals against London. Strome was dominant for bronze-medal winning Canada at the WJC, scoring 3 goals with 6 assists and finishing plus-nine in six games.

2012-13: Strome made his pro debut with the Islanders’ AHL affiliate in Bridgeport following his OHL season with Niagara. He was with New York during the playoff series with Pittsburgh but did not appear in any games. Strome was one of Canada’s leading scorers at the 2013 World Junior Championship, scoring 2 goals with 5 assists, and was-1 with 4 penalty minutes in seven games for Bridgeport. The Sound Tigers missed the AHL playoffs after finishing third in the Northeast Division. Strome was the OHL’s sixth-leading scorer and was a team captain for Niagara. He scored 34 goals with 60 assists (third-most in the OHL) and was +43 with 59 penalty minutes. The IceDogs finished fourth in the Central Division and lost to Oshawa in a first round playoff series.

In six games for fourth-place Canada at the WJC he scored 4 goals with 2 assists and was +2 with 10 penalty minutes.

 

Talent Analysis

A slick offensive center who possesses an instinctively gifted skill-set, Strome has excellent hand-skills and a bag full of tricks with the puck on his stick. He has the ability to protect the puck in traffic and is also a very good passer with a playmaker's vision.

 

Future

Strome has begun his pro career in 2013-14, starting the season with the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
