The Humboldt Broncos are pleased to announce that we have re-acquired Landen Stromme to complete a trade that included a future consideration.
“It’s hard to explain my excitement and how honored I am to be able to come back to Humboldt and play as a Bronco once again. I can’t wait for the fans to see the kind of player I have become compared to when I was 16,” said Stromme.
Stromme, a Choiceland, SK native, started his junior-A hockey career with the Broncos in the 2021/22 season where he played 29 games, picking up 2 points (1g,1a) and 57 penalty minutes. The 16-year-old, at the start of the 2021 Season, impressed the coaching staff with his high tempo, paired with tenacity, grit, and physicality that were well above his age.
“His character and work ethic stood out immediately. He was not your average 16- or 17-year-old when he was with us two seasons ago. We ended up trading him to Dryden with the everything in place for us to re-acquire him the following year. His development took a major stride, and he was getting plenty of ice-time to help his development on a really good Dryden team. We, as a coaching staff, and a team, are really excited to have Landon back in our lineup,” said Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney.
Landen’s season in Dryden was a huge step, especially in the offensive side of his game. He tied for the team-lead, finishing with over a point-per-game with 51 points (24g, 27a) in 49 games, adding 16 more points in 11 playoff games.
At the end of the season, he was named the SIJHL Forward of the Year
“I learned a lot in Dryden and developed skills both on and off the ice that transformed the way I play. Looking back now, from the beginning to the end of the year, I feel like a different person let alone the player with how much I’ve learned. From the coaches and the staff to my teammates and the fans, everyone in Dryden was so impactful when it came to helping me elevate my game. I’m so thankful for that and I’m thrilled to bring everything I learned back to Humboldt,” Stromme added.
The Humboldt Broncos are proud to welcome back Landen and his family to the organization and community.
