Kahun will hit the open market after the Oilers decided not to give him a qualifying offer, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
Kahun has played for four teams over the last three seasons in which he recorded 34 goals, 49 assists and 61 blocks in 186 appearances. Unless he signs with one of his former clubs, the 26-year-old Czech will be once again putting on a new sweater. Given his offensive upside, Kahun should garner plenty of interest and could secure a top-six role depending on where he lands.
Kahun scored the game-winning goal and fired three shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Canadiens.
Kahun was sprung on a breakaway by Leon Draisaitl and flicked the puck past Montreal netminder Cayden Primeau less than 30 seconds into the extra frame. It was the second straight game with a goal for Kahun, who has tallied nine times in 47 appearances overall as a first-year Oiler.
Kahun scored a goal on two shots in a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal on Monday.
Kahun redirected a perfect Connor McDavid setup on top of the crease to give the Oilers a 3-2 lead midway through the second period.

Kahun registered a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.
A rare goal from the Oilers' second power-play unit saw Kahun pass to Darnell Nurse, who then set up Evan Bouchard. The assist was Kahun's first power-play point of the year. The German winger has 13 points, 59 shots on net and a minus-3 rating in 43 contests overall.
Kahun scored a goal on four shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.
Kahun's tally in the final minute of the second period stood as the game-winner in Monday's contest. The 25-year-old winger snapped his 11-game goal drought in the process. He's up to 12 points, 58 shots on net and a minus-3 rating in 42 contests. He hasn't clicked very well in Edmonton despite often seeing top-six minutes.
Kahun provided an assist, fired two shots on goal and went plus-3 in Monday's 6-1 win over the Jets.

Kahun struck at 11:29 of the second period to tie the game at 2-2. He finished a strong passing play on the rush, converting on Kailer Yamamoto's feed. Kahun has played a part-time role over the last month -- he's appeared in just seven of the Oilers' last 15 games. When he's active, he usually plays in a top-six role, but he only has 10 points and 45 shots on net through 30 contests this year.

It's unclear why Kahun is set to miss his first game of the year. The 25-year-old recorded four goals and as many assists through his first 25 contests. James Neal (undisclosed) will return to the lineup and take Kahun's place in the top six.
Kahun (undisclosed) was unable to participate in Tuesday's practice session. Head coach Dave Tippett told reporters, "He's unfit to practice, we'll leave it at that," Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Kahun's absence from practice certainly raises doubts regarding his availability for Wednesday's matchup with Toronto. If the winger is unable to suit up, Kyle Turris could get back in the lineup for the first time since Feb. 17, while Tyler Ennis could be an option to move into a top-six role.
Kahun scored two goals in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.

Kahun has just six points, 30 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 20 contests. He's struggled to fit in with the Oilers' offense, although he's been better lately with five of his six points this year coming in the last 11 games.
Kahun posted an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Senators.

Kahun notched an assist in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Flames.
Kahun's drop-back pass allowed Darnell Nurse to score on a rocket at 8:55 of the third period, but that was the last goal of the game for the Oilers. The 25-year-old Kahun isn't finding much success despite a top-six role. He has just four points, 23 shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in 13 contests. James Neal has been more productive recently and could challenge for Kahun's spot on the second line alongside Leon Draisaitl.
Kahun scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Senators.
Kahun tallied just eight seconds after the opening faceoff, and that proved to be an indication of how the game would go as the two teams combined for 13 goals. While Kahun's marker didn't mean a lot in the contest, he's lit the lamp in consecutive games. The 25-year-old German is up to three points, 21 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 11 contests, although he's hardly lived up to his top-six assignment.
Kahun scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Maple Leafs.

The 25-year-old Kahun has added a plus-3 rating, 19 shots on goal and seven hits through 10 contests. For now, he remains in a second-line role, but he'll need to produce more to stay there with James Neal healthy and ready to challenge for a top-six job.
Kahun had an assist and four shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.
Kahun got the first look on a line with Leon Draisaitl and Kailer Yamamoto, but his first assist with the Oilers came on an Adam Larsson goal. It was still a decent performance for Kahun, who had 31 points in 56 games between the Penguins and the Sabres in 2019-20. The 25-year-old will have plenty of appeal in DFS formats as long as he remains alongside Draisaitl, but season-long managers can wait a little while to see if he will produce.
Kahun (undisclosed) is on the ice for Thursday's practice.
Kahun is skating with the Oilers' second group Wednesday after missing the first two days of camp, but he should settle into a second-line role once he gets up to speed.

Kahun (undisclosed) was deemed unfit to play for the first practice of camp Monday.
