Coyotes Dylan Strome earns another NHL chance after AHL scoring tear

Coyotes Dylan Strome earns another NHL chance after AHL scoring tear

There havent been a whole lot of bright spots for the Arizona Coyotes this season. Clayton Kellers quest for the Calder Trophy is fun to watch and Oliver Ekman-Larssons bounce-back season after some personal tragedy has been great to witness.

Now its Dylan Stromes chance to add to the positives side of the ledger for the Coyotes after he was recalled from the AHL on Sunday.

Youll remember that the No. 3 overall pick from the 2015 NHL Draft started the season in Arizona, but couldnt find a regular spot in Rick Tocchets lineup. After being sent back to junior following seven games during the 2016-17 campaign, there was hope Strome could be an impact player in the Coyotes lineup this season. It didnt happen at the start. He recorded zero points and only three shots in 24:18 of ice time over two games.

I think Ive proven that I can play there. Its just about being consistent, I guess, finding a way to be steady on an every-day basis, he said last month after being sent down via the Arizona Republic. Youre going to have some good games, but you cant have those bad games or youll be down here [in AHL] or youll be in the press box.

Carrying the pressure of being a top-five draft pick, especially after a junior career in Erie that saw him post back-to-back 100-point seasons, the demotion could have impacted Strome in a negative way.
