Stralman is a steady, reliable defenseman who plays a two-way, mainly defensive game. Yesterday, Stralman played alongside fellow Swede, Hampus Lindholm, on the first pair. Stralman logged a total of 25 shifts, along with a total ice-time of 18:30.   Stralman is a player that the Bruins can acquire for cheap and play with the Bruins' top-4 till the return of injured defenders Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk. while also fitting in nicely as a top-6 player once fully healthy.   The Bruins should utilize the Swede in many different areas of the game.

Here are some of the top headlines and notes, prior to the NHL season: Bruins offer PTO to Anton Stralman The Boston Bruins have reportedly offered a professional tryout to veteran defenseman Anton Stralman. The Swedish defenseman has yet to make a decision on his hockey career, and has yet to accept or decline the offer. Hearing player is Anton Stralman. — Ty Anderson (@_TyAnderson) September 22, 2022 Stralman is coming off a season with the Arizona Coyotes.
