The Chicago Blackhawks have been keeping one player off of the ice through the first three games of the season. Dylan Strome has been watching from the sweets while the Hawks have been losing big.

Dylan Strome did not have the best season last year, but the Blackhawks are out of options.

The first few games of the regular season have not gone great for the Blackhawks, and now they might need to turn to one player who has been watching from the sweets in the arena in Dylan Strome.

Strome is a center who can play with high-end talent. Things have not been working, and while Strome probably isn’t the answer, he is something new for them to try.

The Hawks only have 12 forwards they can play at one time, it probably is not going to be known for a while who is going to actually be in the lineup on Tuesday but Strome wouldn’t be a bad guess.

During the 2018-19 season, Strome put up 51 points in 58 games with the Hawks. Sure it was just one year, and everything since has not been great, but hey Tuesday is a new day. Personally, I think the Blackhawks need to give Strome a chance, otherwise he probably never will be in the lineup this season and is just going to be traded as soon as possible, which is also an option.

The Blackhawks need to play Strome mostly because they just do not have any other options. The offense has not been the biggest problem for their team. Some bad coverage in the team’s own end as the new defensemen try and get used to Jeremy Colliton’s system has been one of the biggest reasons for bad goals going in the Hawks net to start the game.

If Strome does get into the game, I think it would be a great redemption story if he scored a goal, however, if he hasn’t gotten in yet after a bad game one or a bad game two then maybe we will be waiting a lot longer for him to get in the game.
