The Chicago Blackhawks gave a two-year contract extension to Dylan Strome.
The Chicago Blackhawks have been given nothing but bad news over the past few weeks. Their roster is very bad, to begin with, but then they lost Jonathan Toews, Kirby Dach, and Alexander Nylander. That is two of your top centers and a winger out for a while with little to replace them. Well, that hard to replace but it had to put pressure on Stan Bowman to get Dylan Strome‘s contract done. He was an RFA that needed a deal but now he will be ready to join Training Camp on time.
The contract is a two-year deal that will give him an average annual value of three million dollars against the cap. It is a decent contract for a player like him that has the potential to have a lot of points. He is more of a passer than a shooter but he does have the ability to score some goals as well. Chicago acquired Strome in the Nick Schmaltz trade with the Arizona Coyotes a few years ago.
