In exchange, the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired forward Dominik Kahun and a 2019 fifth-round draft pick.

His previous Team transferred the 23-year-old striker in exchange with the Finnish defender Olli Maatta to the five-time Stanley Cup victor. "He is a speedy, versatile player capable of playing all three forward positions".

National Basketball Association draft 2019: Updated order after Lakers-Pelicans Anthony Davis trade
The Lakers could have a real chance to land either Walker or Butler if their own teams don't offer them full max contracts. With James and Davis on board, free agents could be lining up to join them in Hollywood to get the Lakers back on track.


The Hawks will be parting ways with Dominik Kahun after just one season in which he posted 13 goals and 24 assists over 82 games. He also saw time on Chicago's power-play and penalty killing units.

Forced to try to out-score their defensive inefficiencies last season, the Chicago Blackhawks seem focused on shoring things up on the back end. Limited to just one goal and 14 points, Maatta also featured some of the worst underlying data of his six-year career to go along with underwhelming totals. "We are very happy that he joined our Team", said Pittsburgh General Manager Jim Rutherford.

Kahun will earn $925,000 next season. He has also played for Germany in the World Championship (2016, '17, '18, '19), World Junior Championship ('13, '14, '15), and World Under-18 Championship ('12, '13).

The fifth-round pick helps a Penguins club that does not hold its own second-, third-, or fourth-round selections in this year's draft.
