2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.

December 2, 2018
Strome scored a power-play goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Flames.
ANALYSIS
Since being acquired by Chicago, the 21-year-old has notched two goals and three points in four games and could certainly be a solid waiver add if he's still available in your league. Provided Strome continues receiving a regular shift with the man advantage, his fantasy ceiling should continue to rise over time. Meanwhile, the former Coyote saw 2:03 of power-play time in Sunday's contest and did his part by coming away with a goal.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
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.
