Drafted:  NYI (1st Round / 5th Overall) - Player Page
• Strome finished third in the Ontario Hockey League scoring with 106 points (33-73--106) in 65 games, leading the IceDogs to a franchise best 45 wins and 96 points in 2010-11. His 1.63 points-per-game average ranked first among all the top producing OHL forwards this season.

• He was voted the Most Improved Player and the Best Playmaker in the 2011 OHL Eastern Conference Coaches Poll. Strome also tied for the Best Stickhandler with Ryan Spooner, drafted 45th overall by Boston in 2010.

• A Mississauga, Ontario native, Strome learned to skate outdoors – “My dad and my grandpa, who lives around the corner from me, took me to a pond in the hydro fields behind my house and threw me on skates and pretty much just told me to go. And my dad's always been supporting me all the way. I remember going to City Hall at four in the morning (with my dad), play with a stick and puck with him, and we'd get kicked off at 6 a.m., then I'd go to my other team's practice.” He comes from a hockey family, as both his younger brothers, Dylan and Matthew, play competitive hockey and hope to follow in his footsteps.

• He credits Ken Strong as one of the most influential coaches in his career, having played 10 years of minor hockey under his tutelage. Strome played his minor hockey for the Toronto Marlboros AAA program and captained the Marlboros as a 15-year-old -- a team that included Lucas Lessio (No. 46 ranked) and Stuart Percy (No. 53 ranked). In 2008-09 he tallied 104 points (41-63--104) in 76 games for the Marlboros.

• A video posted on YouTube of a highlight reel goal against Plymouth in October 2010 has over 300,000 views.

• His most embarrassing hockey moment was “crying after a penalty” when he was four and his childhood hockey idol was Gary Roberts because of his work ethic.
