The 23-year-old Strome was acquired from the Arizona Coyotes in November 2018 along with Brendan Perlini in return for Nick Schmaltz. He was a first-round pick, or third overall, for the Coyotes in the 2015 National Hockey League (NHL) Draft.
“We believe Dylan is ready to take the next step in his career and build on the progress he’s made during his first two years in Chicago,” General Manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. He has a great offensive instinct and brings creativity to our team. We are delighted that he has signed and that he can join us [lundi] for the camp. “
Strome totaled 12 goals and 38 points in 58 games in 2019-20. The year before, he had had his best career campaign scoring 20 goals and 57 points from 78 games with the Blackhawks and Coyotes.
