Dylan Strome signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday. It has an average annual value of $3 million.
The 23-year-old forward, who was a restricted free agent, scored 38 points (12 goals, 26 assists) in 58 games for the Blackhawks last season and three points (two goals, one assist) in nine Stanley Cup Playoff games.
“We believe Dylan is ready to take the next step in his career and build off the strides he has made in his first two years in Chicago,” Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said. “He has great offensive instincts and brings creativity and skill to our team. We are thrilled he is now signed and able to join us [Monday] for the start of training camp.”
Selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the first round (No. 3) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Strome has scored 105 points (36 goals, 69 assists) in 164 regular-season games with the Blackhawks and Coyotes. He was traded to Chicago with forward Brendan Perlini by Arizona for forward Nick Schmaltz on Nov. 25, 2018.
