2010 Draft - Fourth Round - RW Tom Kuehnhackl

Kuehnhackl was the fourth round selection by the Penguins. He is the son of Erich Kuehnhackl, who was voted German hockey player of the 20th century.

Kuehnhackl is the third straight winger the Pens have drafted, as they clearly appear to be addressing some organizational weakness at the forward spot.

Tom has some decent size and played as a teenager in a German men's league the past two seasons. Despite sporadic ice time, he still was able to produce points.

He'll play for the Windsor Spitfires next season.

He has to be happy coming to the Pens, since he states his most memorable game that he watched was Game 7 of the Pens Stanley Cup victory over the Red Wings.
