The Chicago Blackhawks acquired defenseman Olli Määttä on Saturday night. In exchange, the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired forward Dominik Kahun and a 2019 fifth-round draft pick.

The 2019 fifth-round draft pick will be 151st overall. The Penguins now have two fifth-round picks.

“Dominik had a great rookie season with the Blackhawks,” Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said. “He is a speedy, versatile player capable of playing all three forward positions. He also saw time on Chicago’s power-play and penalty killing units. We are very excited for him to join our team.”

The 24-year-old Jyväskylä, Finland native was the Penguins 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. He spent the last six seasons with the team.

This past season, he appeared in 60 games. He had one goal and 13 assists for 14 points with a 9 +/- and 98 PIM.

In his career in Pittsburgh — including two Stanley Cup Championships — he had 25 goals and 82 assists for 107 points in 362 games. He also had a 61 +/- and 98 PIM.

The 23-year-old Plana, Czech Republic native spent one season with the Blackhawks. He had 13 goals and 24 assists in 82 games.

Kahun also had 10 +/- and 6 PIM.
