Highlights
1-time OHL Champion 1

A big, skilled winger that plays a complete and consistent game. Battles hard for puck possession and is relentless on both the power play and penalty kill. Plays a hard-nosed game and uses his size to establish his presence around the net. Has good hands, an accurate shot, and zero compromise hockey sense. His skating and overall balance off the rush and in-transition is a work in progress that is continuing to get better by the day. That being said, his vision is excellent and his offensive talent is apparent; he is able to play at a fast pace. Being able to keep up is a big part of that, and, moving forward, he has the potential to develop into a strong two-way winger that is hard to play against and can be relied on in all situations. (Curtis Joe, EP 2016)

Brothers: Dylan Strome, Ryan Strome

Has the ability and creativity to deke defenders and make them look silly…a strong puck-distributor who should use his shot more often, Futureconsiderations.ca 2017
His best asset would be his shot. He has a high powered shot that has pretty good accuracy, Hockeyprospect.com 2017
