"We expect him to be on our team next year," the Blackhawks' general manager Stan Bowman told Scott Powers, journalist from The Athletic. "We're going to sign him. I think he's going to play a role on the Blackhawks next year."

Kubalík initially signed a three-year deal with HC Ambrì-Piotta in summer 2017 and joined the team from HC Plzeň in mid-November of the very same year. Ever since, he has suited up in 90 games for the Biancoblù and led this year's regular season in scoring with 57 points (25 goals, 32 assists) in a total of 50 games.

The Czech left winger was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 2013 but has yet to sign his first NHL contract. Back in January this year, the Blackhawks acquired the rights of Kubalík in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019. The 23-year-old will hit the ice with the Czech national team at the upcoming IIHF World Championship in Slovakia.
