Blackhawks Will Let Dylan Strome Walk, Per Reports

The Hawks reportedly will not qualify the 25-year-old, which will allow him to reach unrestricted free agency on July 13.

According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Chicago Blackhawks will not bring back Dylan Strome in 2022-23. The 25-year-old’s restricted free agent status gives Chicago the option to issue a qualifying offer by July 11, but McKenzie reports Strome will head to unrestricted free agency instead.

The Blackhawks initially acquired Strome in a trade that sent Nick Schmaltz to the Arizona Coyotes during the 2018-19 season. In 225 games across parts of four seasons with Chicago, Strome recorded 154 points (60 goals, 94 assists).

After playing out the end of his entry-level contract with the Blackhawks, Strome signed a two-year, $6 million contract to remain in Chicago. But the team has now entered a full-scale rebuild, placing an emphasis on building toward the future.

Given McKenzie’s report, Chicago Blackhawks’ GM Kyle Davidson does not view Dylan Strome as part of that future.
