The Chicago Blackhawks are getting calls from teams about forward Dylan Strome's availability, reports The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

Chicago has a surplus of centers on its roster with the return of Jonathan Toews and arrival of Tyler Johnson from Tampa Bay, as well as a fully healthy Kirby Dach.

The Blackhawks acquired Strome, 24, from the Arizona Coyotes in November 2018 for Nick Schmaltz. He was electric during his first season in Chicago, recording 51 points in 58 games. Over the last two campaigns, he's managed just 55 points in 98 contests.

The Coyotes selected Strome with the third overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. He signed a two-year extension with an average annual value of $3 million with the Blackhawks prior to the 2020-21 season. He'll be a restricted free agent at the conclusion of this year.
