Kahun has appeared in 138 career NHL games over the past two seasons with those clubs and the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound forward owns a career 25 goals and 43 assists, as well as a plus-18 plus-minus rating.

Kahun was born in Plana, Czech Republic, but is a German national.

He played alongside Hart-Trophy winner Draisaitl for Germany in the 2018 men’s world hockey championship, as well as the world junior men’s hockey championship in 2013 and 2014.

Kahun has compiled a career 39 goals and 71 assists in 157 games in the Deutschland Elite League.
