2019 Fantasy Outlook
The third overall pick was having yet another underwhelming start to the season last year, notching six points in 19 games, when the Coyotes decided to cut their losses and send him to Chicago in exchange for Nick Schmaltz in late November. The change of scenery couldn't have worked out better for Strome, who went on to rack up 17 goals and 51 points in 58 games with the Blackhawks while exhibiting tremendous chemistry with former Erie Otters teammate Alex DeBrincat. It appears as though Chicago has finally found its long-awaited No. 2 center in Strome, who will be locked into a spot in the Blackhawks' top six while getting ample work with the man advantage in 2019-20. Strome may not be able to replicate the near point-per-game pace he set during his time with Chicago last year, but 20-plus goals and 60-plus points should be easily attainable for the 6-foot-3 pivot in his first full season as a Blackhawk, making him a desirable secondary option in any fantasy format.

Strome scored a goal, added a pair of helpers and went plus-3 in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.
Strome, Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat combined for eight points for the second straight contest. For Strome, it's his third multi-point outing in his last four games, a hot stretch that followed a four-game dry spell. The 22-year-old has four goals and 14 points in 18 games overall. He's added 29 shots on goal and a plus-9 rating this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The third overall pick from the 2015 draft has yet to live up to expectations at hockey's highest level. While Strome fared well in his first season with AHL Tucson -- 61 points (25 goals, 36 assists) in 59 games -- he has yet to stand out in the pack of youthful Desert Dogs with 10 points (four goals, six assists) through 28 contests. Nevertheless, it's worth noting that Strome produced eight three goals and five assists in the final 10 games before heading to AHL Tucson for its 2018 playoff run, so if the skilled two-way competitor picks up where left off, he could yield a substantial return.
The blue-chip prospect is expected to be Arizona's No. 1 center down the line, and Strome showcased his promise by capping off his OHL career with a Memorial Cup Championship and tournament MVP honors. His offensive upside is sky high, and he already had a seven-game stint with Arizona to start the 2016-17 campaign. However, it wouldn't be shocking if Arizona continued to be pragmatic with its coveted prospect. Strome needs to fill out his 6-foot-3 frame and show that he can play a 200-foot game, and that might require some AHL seasoning. There's a legitimate chance that everything will click in training camp and he lands a permanent NHL job, but just note that it might not be a seamless transition to full-time NHL duty, either.
Strome is a power forward looking to turn pro after three successful campaigns with OHL Lake Erie, which saw him amass 92 goals, 187 helpers and a plus-87 rating. Drafted by the Coyotes with the third overall pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Strome tentatively projects to start the upcoming season in a top-six role, centering a natural scorer in Tobias Rieder and Shane Doan, the ageless wonder. Furthermore, Leapfrogging Brad Richardson for time on the man advantage should be a small hurdle for Strome, thus adding to his intrigue from a fantasy perspective. Strome should already be on dynasty and keeper rosters and his upside alone makes him worth a speculative play at the back end of season-long drafts this fall.
Strome was selected third overall by the Coyotes in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft and may immediately become the organization's top prospect, which is saying something with Max Domi and Anthony Duclair already in the fold. The optimism is for good reason, though, as Strome led the OHL in scoring this year with 132 points while playing in the shadow of No. 1 overall pick Connor McDavid. The big (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) center showed that he wasn't just riding McDavid's coattails when he posted 29 points in the 20 games his more well-known teammate missed due to injury and through his commitment to the World Junior Championship. While Strome is likely to head back to junior for another season, he has the potential to be a top-line center in the NHL for a long time, and is certainly worthy of rostering in dynasty formats.
