Islanders recall AHL scoring leader Strome

The New York Islanders announced today that forward Ryan Strome has been recalled from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Strome, 20, leads the AHL in scoring with 33 points (nine goals and 24 assists) in 23 games with the Sound Tigers. The Mississauga, Ont., native has 17 points (five goals and 12 assists) and a plus-11 rating during his current nine-game scoring streak, and was named the CCM/AHL Rookie of the Month for November. He was also named CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the past two weeks, becoming the third AHL player in the last 20 years to be named Player of the Week in consecutive weeks (Blake Geoffrion, 2011; Jim Carey, 1994).

The Islanders selected Strome in the first round, fifth overall, of the 2011 National Hockey League Draft. He played four seasons of junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League, totaling 105 goals and 190 assists for 295 points in 225 regular-season games with the Barrie Colts and Niagara IceDogs. Strome made his professional debut with the Sound Tigers at the end of the 2012-13 season, tallying seven points (two goals and five assists) in 10 contests.

On the international stage, Strome has represented Canada at the 2012 and 2013 World Junior Championships, totaling 15 points (seven goals and eight assists) in 12 games across both tournaments.
