Playing career[edit | edit source]
Anton Strålman was selected on July 30, 2005, by the Maple Leafs as their fifth draft choice (216th overall). He was picked in the seventh and last round of the post-lockout 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Earlier the same year, on April 4, Anton had signed a two year deal with Timrå IK. During the following 2005–06 season, Strålman adapted to Elitserien quickly and became a regular. On January 20, 2006, this effort was recognized as he was named the third in the line of four candidates for Elitserien Rookie Of The Year 2006. The award was eventually won by the forward Nicklas Bäckström.
On May 16, 2007, it was announced that Strålman had signed a three year contract with the Maple Leafs. He made his North American professional debut on October 6, 2007, with the Toronto Marlies and played his first game for the Leafs on October 23, in a home game against the Atlanta Thrashers. On March 21, 2008, he scored his first NHL goal in a game against the Buffalo Sabres and recorded his first multi-goal game against the Montreal Canadiens on March 29.
During the 2009 off-season, Stralman was traded twice. On July 27, he was traded to the Calgary Flames along with Colin Stuart and a 7th round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft for Wayne Primeau and a 2nd round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. On September 28, 2009 he was traded by the Flames to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a 3rd round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
