Ryan Strome lives with John Tavares, but he was unaware that the New York Islanders captain was nominated for the Hart Trophy until he overheard a phone conversation.
“Nice guy,” Strome joked Thursday.“He’d have my vote every day,” he added. “I see how hard he works, how special he is and how much he means to this team. He does everything and a lot of stuff you might not see. He truly means a lot for us. I’m hoping he wins it. Hoping I get to celebrate with him this summer.”
