On Thursday afternoon the Blackhawks acquired forward Dominik Kubalík from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. The pick going to LA was previously acquired from the Arizona Coyotes in the Marian Hossa trade.
Listed at 6-2 and 178 pounds, Kubalík was originally drafted by the Kings in the seventh round (#191 overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.
He will finish the season with HC Ambrì Piotta of the National League in Switzerland, where he currently leads the National League in points (43), is second in assists (25) and shares fourth in goals (18).
Kubalík will turn 24 on Aug. 21. He spent parts of the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons with Sudbury in the OHL as a teammate of current Blackhawks forward Dominik Kahun.
