Dylan Strome Officially Off Injured Reserve, Returns Tonight vs. Lightning

Chicago Blackhawks

Prior to their game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday, the Chicago Blackhawks announced that forward Dylan Strome was officially activated off of injured reserve and would return to the lineup immediately.

Strome had missed the last 11 games for the Blackhawks after being placed on IR on March 6th (retroactive to February 19th) due to a concussion. He returned to the Blackhawks lineup on the third-line wing with Ryan Carpenter and Mattias Janmark.

Strome has eight points in 19 games this season with the Blackhawks.

His return gives Chicago an added offensive element they have missed in their past few games. The Blackhawks rank 16th and 17th, right in the middle of the league, in goals per game (3.00) and shots on goal per game (29.7) through 30 games this season.
