May 2022 – Strömgren will be remaining in Europe with Rogle next season for one more year before hopefully making the jump to North America. He was drafted last year in the second round, 45th overall. He is an intriguing prospect to continue to observe and we will see if he can take his talents to the next level. If there is one thing he needs to improve on, it is his defensive play. He needs to learn to support his teammates on the defensive end. Strömgren is young and has plenty of time to develop and fill out his lanky frame. Chris Fekete

 

July 2021 – Strömgren was selected in the second round, 45th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 2021 NHL Draft. Nick Richard

 

July 2021 – Strömgren struggled to produce in HockeyAllsvenskan with just nine points in 27 games but he scored at a good clip in Sweden’s lower levels. He tallied 18 points in 14 games with MODO’s J20 team and added 12 points in 11 contests with Örnsköldsvik of HockeyEttan.

Strömgren presents an enticing package in a draft-eligible prospect with his combination of size, skating ability, and puck handling skills. His hands are lightning quick and he often seems to be a step ahead in one on one situations, routinely dancing around defenders with creative dekes. He does suffer from a bit of tunnel vision at times, however, and can try to do too much on his own. When he takes the time to scan the ice, he is a capable distributor who can find teammates in space with slick feeds. Learning how to better pick his spots as he continues his development will be an area of focus for Strömgren. He has a decent shot and can finish off opportunities he creates for himself but improved off-puck reads will lead to a wider variety of scoring chances for him. He is a fine skater but the overall pace of his game needs to improve as he often looks disengaged without the puck on his stick. The lack of consistency and the flaws in his game are concerning, but Strömgren’s upside as a scoring winger in the NHL make him worthy of a swing early on the second day of the NHL draft. Nick Richard
