Penguins prospect Tomas Kuhnhackl to return to OHL

Tomas Kuhnhackl, a 4th round draft choice in 2010, is eligible to play in the AHL this season at the age of 19. He'll spend another season in the OHL, however, playing for the Windsor Spitfires, according to this article from the Windsor Star.

Kuhnhackl led the Spitfires in scoring last season with 39 goals, including 15 on the power play, and 68 points. He was just a +4 on the year, which suggests he may need to work on his defensive game. Overall, it was a nice transition from the European game.

Given the lack of scoring at the forward spot, you have to hope that Kuhnhackl can continue to develop all areas of his game since the scoring touch seems to be there right now.

Kuhnhackl will be in Pittsburgh for the 2011 development camp.
