There are a number of reports circulating on Wednesday that the Blackhawks will sign German center Dominik Kahun to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Kahun, 22, posted 41 points (12 goals, 29 assists) in 42 games with EHC München of the German Deutsche Eishockey Liga this season.
He caught the attention of NHL scouts at the 2018 Winter Olympics, where he registered five points in seven games as Germany surprised the field to win the silver medal. Kahun put 20 shots on goal in the seven games during the Olympic tournament and won 55.41 percent of his faceoffs (41 of 74).
Kahun is listed at 5-11 and 172 pounds and is a left-handed shot.
Spox.com quotes former NHL player and German national team coach Marco Sturm in a story about Kahun reportedly signing with Chicago:
“He has made an enormous step this year, has become much more stable and mature, I am sure that he would grab it in the NHL,” Sturm told the Hamburger Morgenpost.
