Sabres acquire Kahun from Pittsburgh

The Buffalo Sabres have acquired forward Dominik Kahun from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for forwards Evan Rodrigues and Conor Sheary.

Kahun, 24, has 27 points (10+17) in 50 games this season. He’s averaging 2.31 points per 60 minutes at 5-on-5, which ranked sixth on the Penguins.

The Czech-born forward was raised in Germany, where he beat out current Edmonton Oilers star Leon Draisaitl for the DNL (Germany’s developmental league) scoring title with 57 points in 2011-12. He was a three-time champion in Germany’s pro league (DEL) with EHC M√ľnchen.

Kahun signed a two-year, entry-level deal with the Chicago Blackhawks in summer 2018 and tallied 37 points (13+24) as a rookie last season. He was acquired by Pittsburgh as part of a package that sent defenseman Olli Maatta to Chicago this past summer.
