The Chicago Blackhawks have lost 5 games in a row after a 4-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. To shake things up, the Blackhawks are looking to trade Dylan Strome.
Strome made his season debut on Thursday night and played well in front of 15 NHL scouts. Charlie Roumeliotis from NBC Sports reported the game was attended by scouts from Anaheim, Arizona, Boston, Buffalo, Calgary, Florida, Minnesota, Montreal, Nashville, N.Y. Islanders, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Tampa Bay (2) and Winnipeg.
Earlier this offseason there were NHL trade rumors going around that the Ottawa Senators had interest in a Strome trade, but interesting to see no Sens scouts were in attendance for his season debut on Thursday.
Could the New York Rangers and Blackhawks work on a trade that would involve disgruntled Rangers forward Vitali Kravtsov for Strome?
It was only three seasons ago that Strome put up 51 points in 58 games for the Blackhawks. With the surplus of centerman on the team, Strome is the odd man out.
Strome, 24, has one year remaining on his deal at $3 million before becoming a restricted free agent.
