Dave Maloney said earlier in the season that Stralman has been one of the Rangers most consistent players and that a lot of what he does goes unnoticed.
Stralman told the Rangers website that he has had a lot of fun this season and he has enjoyed the increased responsibility, especially on the PK.
In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers need to take care of Stralman's contract, he is a UFA, and that he is due a raise from his $1.7 million per season. Brooks thinks that $3 million a year could be the price for Stralman.
Stralman has attempted 100 shots this season, 52 on goal, 16 missed and 32 blocked.
When on the ice, via Extra Skater, when Stralman is on the ice the Rangers control 55.8% of the shot attempts.
He ranks second in the Rangers in that category (CORSI) behind Chris Kreider who is at 56.7%.
Stralman starts 34.1% of his shifts in the offensive zone, 34.1% in the neutral zone and 31.2% in the defensive zone.
