The Chicago Blackhawks have decided not to tender a qualifying offer to center Dylan Strome, making him an unrestricted free agent on Monday, according to a report from The Athletic.
Strome, 25, tallied 48 points (22 goals, 26 assists) in 69 games last season for the Blackhawks. He is the latest talented forward to leave Chicago, which dealt Alex DeBrincat to the Ottawa Senators and Kirby Dach to the Montreal Canadiens this month.
The Arizona Coyotes selected Strome with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NHL draft. He has tallied 170 career points (67 goals, 103 assists) in 273 games with Arizona (2016-18) and Chicago (2018-22).
Strome also has appeared in nine career playoff games. He has two goals and one assist in those contests.
