Anton Stralman registered two assists in Tampa Bay's 2-1 win over Minnesota on Saturday.

The 28-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Bolts this off-season and he's been a solid acquisition. Stralman has two goals, 12 points and is a plus-12. He has really stepped up in the absence of Victor Hedman. Stralman is probably one of the most underrated defensemen in the NHL.

Anton Stralman will be back at Madison Square Garden on Monday as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He signed with the Lightning in the off-season after helping the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup Final. Former Blueshirts Ryan Callahan and Brian Boyle will also be returning to New York for the first time with Tampa Bay. "It's something special," Stralman said. "A little emotional and fun at the same time. That's one of the big games that if I'm looking at the schedule, I think 'Cally' and 'Boyler' would say the same thing. If there's one game out of the regular season you really want to win, it's this one."

Anton Stralman, who sat out Friday's practice, looks good to go Saturday against the Blue Jackets.

Anton Stralman has been Tampa's best player so far this season.

Lightning coach Jon Cooper can't say enough good things about Stralman, who is part of the top defensemen pairing and is anchoring the first power-play unit while Victor Hedman recovers from injury. "Anton Stralman is an outstanding defenseman," Cooper said. "It's funny. Stats are stats. You people (media) can read into them whatever you want. But it's a 7-2 game (against the Wild) and you find a way to come out a plus-1, that's pretty impressive. And he plays 20 minutes. It's not like he plays one shift a period." Stralman is an amazing plus 13. Of course the real revelation in Stralman's game is his offense. He has nine points in 13 games. Even when Hedman returns, Stralman will have plenty fantasy value. Try and get him from an owner who may not fully appreciate his talents.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have been thrilled with the play of Anton Stralman.

"I love his calmness with the puck. There's no panic in his game," said associate coach Rick Bowness. "One thing at ice level we can see is their eyes, and he's very calm. He sees the game. He knows the game. His positional play is very strong. He never panics with the puck. He never puts his partner in danger. He's just a very good player. We couldn't be happier." Stralman has played well offensively and defensively in the early going for the Lightning. He has one goal, six assists and a plus-9 rating in nine games. He's averaging 22:23 of ice time per contest and he appears to be money well spent after he signed a five-year, $22.5 million deal in the summer.

Anton Stralman registered a goal and an assist in the Lightning’s 7-2 loss against the Wild on Saturday night.

Stralman has been a poster boy of the analytics community, as a player who drives puck possession and plays a shutdown defensive game. Despite those accolades, he hasn’t flashed much offensive finish in his career. This season, though, he’s asserted himself more, and he’s already recorded a goal and seven points — with a plus-nine rating. Nikita Kucherov had the other goal.

Anton Stralman continued to work on Tampa Bay's second power-play unit during Monday's practice.

He manned the point with the man advantage during Saturday's preseason game as well. Stralman had one goal in 81 games with the Rangers last year, but he scored three exhibition markers with the Lightning. He may get a chance to chip in more offensively than he did in New York and he's worth keeping an eye on.
