Kahun-Kampf duo has it to­gether

Post Tribune (Sunday) - - Sports - By Jimmy Green­field Chicago Tri­bune

NASHVILLE — Do­minik Kahun be­gan the sea­son play­ing on a line with Jonathan Toews and Alex DeBrin­cat. But shortly af­ter Jeremy Col­li­ton took over as coach, he moved the rookie for­ward to a line with David Kampf.

Af­ter a slow start the pair has started to pro­duce. En­ter­ing Satur­day’s game, the two had com­bined for six points in the last three games, in­clud­ing Thurs­day’s 6-5 loss to the Jets in which John Hayden joined them and added a goal and as­sist.

“Kampf and Kahun had a lot of good chem­istry over the last how many games,” Col­li­ton said. “It seems like whomever goes there it’s a fit. Hayden was no ex­cep­tion. I thought (Hayden) was pretty good with (Toews).

Hello, old friend: Ten months af­ter the Hawks traded Ryan Hart­man, the for­ward fi­nally faced his for­mer club Satur­day. It was his 48th game since the trade — 57th if you in­clude last sea­son’s play­offs — and he had been wait­ing for it.

“I was telling some of the guys that this game has been cir­cled for a while on my cal­en­dar,” Hart­man said.

With seven goals in 26 games this sea­son, Hart­man was on pace to top his ca­reer high of 19 goals, set when he was a rookie in 2016-17.

“My game is the same,” Hart­man said. “( I ’ m) play­ing hard, our team’s do­ing well, top of the stand­ings. Each and ev­ery night com­pet­ing. It’s fun hockey.”
