Dominik Kahun (born 2 July 1995) is a Czech-born German professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Born in the Czech Republic, Kahun moved to Germany with his family as a child. Kahun played junior hockey with the Jungadler Mannheim U18 team, where he was the league's leading scorer for the 2011–12 season.[1] He then moved to Canada where he played two seasons of major junior hockey with the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

On 4 April 2014, it was confirmed that Kahun had signed with EHC Red Bull München to begin his professional career with the 2014–15 season in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).[2] In 2016, he won the DEL title with München.

On 21 May 2018, Kahun as an undrafted free agent signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL).[3] Kahun made his NHL debut on 3 October[4] and recorded his first two NHL points, both assists, in a 7–6 overtime loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs on 8 October.[5] He recorded his first career NHL goal on 11 October in a 4–3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild.[6] He appeared in all 82 games with the Blackhawks in the 2018–19 season, providing scoring depth to Chicago, finishing tied 7th among all rookies in NHL scoring with 13 goals and 37 points.

On 15 June 2019, Kahun was traded by the Blackhawks to the Pittsburgh Penguins along with a 2019 fifth-round pick for Olli Maatta.[7]
