The Avalanche have signed Martin Kaut to a three-year entry level contract.
The Avalanche select Martin Kaut with the No.16 overall pick.
Kaut may come to North America for the 2019 season, but spent last year playing in the top Czech league as an 18-year-old. Playing with men, Kaut is low on the depth chart but he still picked up nine goals and seven assists (16 points) in 38 games. While getting a top-line opportunity at the World Juniors, Kaut recorded seven points (2G / 5A) in seven games. Kaut is a reliable 200-foot player who can score and set up his linemates. Kaut has drawn some comparisons to fellow Czech winger Jakub Voracek.
