Strome claimed by Mississippi
Former Brahma may move to the Northern Conference

Anders Strome has been claimed off of waivers by the Mississippi RiverKings, it was announced today. It is unknown whether he will choose to sign a contract or weigh other options.

The RiverKings (14-12-2, 30 points) are in fourth place in the Northern Conference behind Bossier-Shreveport, Rapid City and Colorado.

Strome tallied six points (5 G, 1 A, -4) in 12 games played this season. The native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada is a seventh year professional who has playing experience in the CHL with Wichita, Lubbock, Rocky Mountain, and Texas, ECHL experience with Long Beach, Florida, and South Carolina. Strome also has international experience, having played in 36 games last season in Denmark with Odense.

Mississippi will be looking for its third straight win in Tuesday's game at home against Missouri. That would be the team's first three game winning streak of the season. The RiverKings have fashioned two-game winning streaks on four separate occasions this season, including the current streak.
