Strand is a consistent contributor for his team in both the offensive and defensive zones, even if he’s not the most spectacular at anything. He is pretty confident with the puck on his stick and is able to keep defenders on their toes, while also being very aware defensively and suppressing chances against. He has a bit of a choppy stride, but it isn’t very concerning because he is still able to create space for himself and navigate his way through the neutral zone to create offensive zone entries with control. He has enough speed to keep up with opponents and has good acceleration, enough to have that extra step to get away from pressure and create some space for himself. He has solid puck control, able to make impressive dekes in tight, and is also very strong along the boards, making him very efficient and hard to handle in the cycle. Displays good vision at times, finding teammates through traffic with creative passes. He understands how hard or soft he needs to make his passes depending on the situation, making it easier for his teammates. Displays good defensive awareness in all three zones. Applies pressure on the puck carrier and is active with his stick, trying to poke or steal the puck away consistently. Looks confident on the penalty kill and is efficient at taking away space and applying pressure. Displays good positioning in the defensive zone and is willing to sacrifice his body to block shots. Plays with a high motor and is usually involved in the play in some form or another. Despite not being the most purely skilled player he finds ways to contribute on the score sheet, usually by going to the opposing net and working harder than the enemy defenders. Looks to be a very coachable player who requires very little maintenance and earns a lot of trust. Projects well as a team-first and defense-first support player who endears himself to his teammates.
