Former New York Islanders draft pick Ryan Strome got engaged yesterday. A congratulations is in order to Strome and his fiancee.

For the first time in his NHL career, Ryan Strome didn’t wear the New York Islanders blue and orange this year. After being selected fifth overall in 2011, Strome had been a part of the organization up until his trade in 2017.

Stromer burst onto the scene in 2014-2015 as a rookie putting up 50 points (17 goals, 33 assists) in 82 games. Strome wouldn’t be able to repeat that initial success. His point production dropped to 28 points and then 30 before he was traded this past year.

In his first year in Edmonton Strome put up a repeat of 2016-2017 essentially. He had a 34 point (13 goals, 21 assists) season. Oilers fans gave him a hard time in his first year in Edmonton.

Hockey aside, a congratulations is in order for Stromer. It appears he got engaged yesterday:

Good for you Stromer! We at Eyes on Isles want to wish him a successful and happy life together with his new fiancee.

It’s a real shame Ryan never worked out with the New York Islanders and I was rooting hard that a change of scenery would do him good. Maybe one day he’ll be able to get back to the 50 point player he once was.
