Ryan Edward Strome (born July 11, 1993) is a Canadian ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Islanders fifth overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and began playing with the team during their 2013-14 season. Previously, Strome played in the major junior level as a member of the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) before being traded to the Niagara IceDogs during his first season in the league.
Playing career Edit
Strome began his professional playing career with the Toronto Marlboros of the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) during the 2008–09 season. At the Ontario Hockey League's (OHL) 2009 Priority Selection, he was selected eighth overall by the Barrie Colts. During the 2009-10 season, he was traded to the Niagara IceDogs. The IceDogs qualified for the playoffs but were eliminated in the first round, while the Colts would go on to the OHL Championship Finals but were eliminated in four games. During the following season, Strome compiled 106 points in just 65 games. He was named "OHL Player of the Month" in January 2011 and selected to the Second All-Star Team at years end.
After his second season with the IceDogs, Strome became eligible for the National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft. He was selected in the first round, fifth overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders. He was also selected by the Kontinental Hockey League's Amur Khabarovsk in their 2011 draft. After being drafted, Strome spent another season with the IceDogs before joining the Islanders' American Hockey League (AHL) minor league affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in the 2012-13 season. Halfway through the following season, on December 11, 2013, he was called up to the Islanders after the team had put Pierre-Marc Bouchard on waivers to make room on their roster. Before his call-up, he was leading the AHL in points through the first 23 games of the season. Strome scored his first NHL goal on January 6, 2014 against Kari Lehtonen of the Dallas Stars.
Personal life Edit
Strome has two brothers who also play hockey, Dylan and Matthew. Dylan currently plays with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, under contract with the Arizona Coyotes of the NHL and the youngest brother Matthew plays in the Ontario Hockey League for the Hamilton Bulldogs. The Strome family has been dubbed as the future Sutters and Staals, families where multiple siblings have gone on to successful ice hockey careers.
