Kahun was acquired by the Penguins from the Blackhawks on Saturday in exchange for defenseman Olli Maatta. The Penguins also received a 2019 fifth-round pick. Kahun had 13 goals and 24 assists and averaged 14:09 of ice time for the Blackhawks this season. The 23-year-old joined Chicago on an entry-level contract in April 2018 and played all 82 games.
Kahun posted an assist, five shots and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks. Kahun had gone six games without a point entering the contest. He has reached 35 points (12 goals, 23 helpers) in 77 games this year, while pumping 133 shots on goal. The Czech rookie's solid overall production could make him a useful budget play in DFS for Saturday's meeting with the Kings.
Kahun notched a pair of assists to Brendan Perlini and Patrick Kane, helping his team to a 7-1 win over Arizona on Monday. Kahun's first season in Chicago has been full of peaks and valleys, and despite the two assists, this one looks like it's been more of a valley for him, as he's only managed four points in the past month. The numbers will come for him, but he's not there yet, making him a good fit for dynasty leagues.
Kahun has gone scoreless in his last four contests. The 23-year-old pivot is still skating on the Blackhawks' second line and is also locked into a spot on the team's second power-play unit, so Kahun should be able to snap his scoreless streak sooner rather than later.
Kahun set up two goals in Tuesday's 6-3 loss against Boston. After a slow start to life in the NHL when he scored 17 points in 46 games, the German rookie now has 12 points over the past 11 contests. This level of production is especially impressive when considering he's averaged just over 13 minutes of ice time during that span.
