Washington Capitals center Dylan Strome recorded two points in Wednesday’s 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center, continuing productivity in his first season with the Capitals.

His first point was the primary assist on right-wing T.J. Oshie’s power-play goal early in the second period. It marked his 16th thus far. Strome ranks second on the Capitals in power-play points (2g-9a—11p) this season.

Giving the Capitals a 2-1 lead, Strome would score a goal of his own on a deflection around the midway mark, potting his sixth into the 2022-23 campaign and the game-winning goal of the evening.

It marked his sixth multi-point game this season and his 41st overall.

The Capitals signed the 25-year-old on July 14 to a one-year, $3.5 million contract after the Chicago Blackhawks did not tender a qualifying offer to the restricted free agent. “I was really excited, and [Washington] showed the most interest, and ultimately that was where I made my decision,” Strome said back in October regarding his first free agency experience.

Since the signing, Strome has seen time in the Capitals’ top-six forward group and has 22 points through 28 games in a Washington sweater.

The Capitals host the Seattle Kraken at Capital One Arena on Friday. NBC Sports Washington+ will have the coverage beginning at 7 PM ET.
