Tampa Bay Lightning

Stralman (undisclosed) will not play on Monday; expected to miss three games.

Stralman left Saturday’s game vs. the Sharks with an undisclosed injury and did not return. Stralman will not play in the Lightning’s first game of a five-game road-trip and head coach Jon Cooper would not commit to Stralman playing on the trip, and added that he will likely miss the first three games.

Stralman working on the Lightning’s top power-play unit.

In his first season in Tampa Bay, Stralman averaged 2:28 PP/TOI per game, which was way up from the 0:45 PP/TOI he averaged in three years with New York—the increased playing time resulted in 14 PPP (2G / 12A) after he had just four PPP in the previous three seasons. Stralman is once again working with the first PP-unit to start the 2015-16 season, so it looks like the Lightning plan to use him in the same way as last year. He had a career high 39 points (9G / 30A) a season ago.

The Lightning have signed Anton Stralman to a five-year deal worth $22.5 million.

Stralman had 13 points (1G / 12A) in 81 games with the Rangers this season. The Lightning freed up a lot of cap-space ahead of July 1st, and they gave Stralman a nice contract. The 27-year-old Swede had a strong postseason and will be a reliable defenseman on the Lightning blueline for the next few years.
