IN DEPTH: Trailblazer

This week's In Depth is on Ryan Strome and the path that brought him and his brothers to the NHL

FOREWORD

BY DYLAN STROME

Ryan was flying from Toronto to Chicago, I was flying from Arizona to Chicago. We were on the plane at the same time.

As soon as I landed I saw he messaged me, "Text me when you land."

I didn't even check Twitter, I just responded, "I landed."

He called me right away, as soon as I had touched the ground, and he just told me he got traded. Then I checked Twitter and obviously, it was right there, the first thing I saw was that.

It was kind of my first reaction, he's joked with me before that he got traded, so I needed to make sure on Twitter that it was actually true.

He was over the moon and excited to be an Oiler. He was very excited and I was very excited for him. The opportunity he's going to get, how good Edmonton is and how good the players are, and obviously a pretty special player he gets to play with, it's pretty cool.
