Dylan William Strome (born March 7, 1997) is a Canadian ice hockey center. He currently plays as the captain for the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), and is a prospect for the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Ahead of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Strome was considered a top prospect, and was officially selected third overall by the Coyotes.
Strome started to gain attention as a minor midget hockey player with the Toronto Marlboros of the Greater Toronto Hockey League where he was named the league's Player of the Year for the 2012–13 season.
He was drafted second overall by the Erie Otters in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, and has played with the Erie Otters since the 2013–14 OHL season. On March 25, 2015, Strome won the 2015 OHL scoring title, narrowly beating out fellow 2015 NHL draft prospect Mitchell Marner; Erie teammate and eventual first draft pick Connor McDavid finished third. Along with winning the scoring title, Strome set the Otters team record for most points in a single season, narrowly beating out former line-mate Connor Brown. On May 22, 2017 in the Memorial Cup round robin he scored a tournament single-game record seven points (four goals and three assists), leading the Otters to a 12–5 win over the Saint John Sea Dogs.
Strome was drafted third overall by the Arizona Coyotes in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. On July 6, 2015, he signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Coyotes.
As a 16-year-old Strome competed as a member of Canada Ontario at the 2014 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, where he was recognized for his outstanding performance when he was named to the tournament's All-Star Team.
Strome went on to play for Canada at the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, winning a gold medal.
At the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championships held in Helsinki, Strome and Mitchell Marner each scored four goals and 2 assists in 5 games to lead the Canadian team in scoring. Canada reached the quarterfinals, but was eliminated by the host Finland.
Strome returned to the 2017 IIHF World Championship held in Toronto and Montreal, where he led Canada as captain to a silver medal finish.
He is the younger brother of Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Strome and the older brother of Philadelphia Flyers prospect Matthew Strome. The Strome brothers grew up in the Lorne Park area of Mississauga.
