LAS VEGAS - Don Granato's immediate thought when reflecting on his season with Dominik Kahun in Chicago is how much the forward's teammates enjoyed playing with him.
Granato was an assistant coach with the Blackhawks last season. Kahun was an undrafted rookie who, playing his pro first season in North America at age 23, quickly earned the respect of his peers on a veteran-laden team.
"They liked playing with him on a line, the power play, whatever," Granato said. "You could see it. He's a fun personality but a contributing personally from the standpoint of he's very serious about his performance.
"… I'm excited that I have a chance to be on the same team again. It was fun to be around him every day in Chicago. It's fun to see him here now. I think he'll fit in fast, fit in well."
