Strudwick was drafted in the third round, 63rd overall, by the New York Islanders in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. He played his first National Hockey League (NHL) game with the Islanders against the Hartford Whalers on March 30, 1996.
After playing for the Hungarian team Ferencvárosi TC of OB I bajnokság during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Strudwick returned to the NHL with the New York Rangers, the team with which he had previously signed as a free agent before the lockout on July 20, 2004, for the 2005–06 season.
Strudwick began the 2006–07 season with HC Lugano in Switzerland before signing a contract on March 19, 2007, with the Rangers. However, because he signed with the team after the trade deadline, he was not eligible to participate in the 2007 Stanley Cup playoffs. In July 2007, he signed a one-year contract with the Rangers and played with them through the 2007–08 season.
On July 10, 2008, Strudwick signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers for the 2008–09 season. He would re-sign with the Oilers during the summer of 2009. On July 2, 2010, he again re-signed as a free agent with the Oilers for another one-year contract. On November 21, 2011, Strudwick signed with the Swedish club Södertälje SK of the Swedish Allsvenskan. On May 24, 2012, he announced his retirement from professional hockey.
After his retirement from the NHL, Strudwick hosted his own radio sports talk show, The Jason Strudwick Show, on Edmonton station TSN 1260, from 2012 to 2015. In May 2015, Strudwick moved to television, on Edmonton station City, where he hosts Dinner Television. The two-hour evening program features newsmagazine and discussion segments. In May 2017, he returned to TSN as a co-host of the Jason Gregor Show. He is also a volleyball champion in Edmonton. He struggles in bicycle racing and blames his loss to Jason Gregor on his bike chain "falling off". The incident has tarnished his reputation amongst those familiar with the incident.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Strudwick was an honours student at Archbishop MacDonald High School. In July 2006, he married Schoena of Wyoming, whom he met when they both worked in Chicago. As of 2017, they have three children. Schoena is now a business owner in Edmonton.
