The Chicago Blackhawks have a surplus of centerman now that Jonathan Toews is back and the recent offseason acquisition of Tyler Johnson, this is leaving Dylan Strome as the odd man out.
Pierre LeBrun was on TSN’s Insider Trading segment and reports the name that’s retaining attention around the league is Dylan Strome. There’s some teams kicking tires on him and I think there’s a chance that he moves here over the next week or two.
LeBrun went on to say, Strome is the guy I think the Blackhawks have earmarked to potentially move and I think that could happen here in the short term.
It was reported earlier this offseason that the Ottawa Senators had interest in a Strome trade.
Strome, 24, has one year remaining on his deal at $3 million before becoming a restricted free agent.
