The times have changed for Dylan Strome.

Not too long ago, making a mistake or having a bad game could turn into a benching. That's not the case anymore.

Strome, who took three minor penalties in less than one period during Monday's loss to the Flames, has already established himself as one of theA Blackhawks' key players since coming over in a trade with the Coyotes.

"It's one of those games you try to forget," he said before Wednesday's game against the Predators. "Before if I did that I might be scratched. Now, I feel like I'm helping the team win and contributing and trying to win faceoffs. I'm just going to shrug it off and go out there (against the Predators) and forget it ever happened."

Strome has seven goals in 21 games with the Hawks after scoring seven goals during the first 48 games of his career.
