Observations:

March 2016 – Teravainen has 11 goals to go along with 19 assists through 65 games of his sophomore campain. These numbers are even more impressive for the 21 year-old when you consider that he has played the majority of the season on the third line, averaging just over 15 minutes of ice per game. It feels like it has been a long time coming for Teravainen, who finally appears to have found consistency in his game, which can be attributed to finding a home centering the third line for Coach Q. With the departure of Philip Danault at the trade deadline, Teravainen was given the role and has not disappointed. On top of that, he has been receiving ample minutes killing penalties for the Blackhawks. Looking ahead, it will be interesting to see how Teravainen is utilized once Marcus Kruger returns and likely resumes his role as the third line center. Matt Donohue

November 2015 – Through 14 games in 2015-16, Teravainen has put up four goals to go along with three assists. Better yet, he has scored four of those points in the four games since he was moved up to play alongside Patrick Kane. Teravainen has picked up right where he left off during last spring's playoff run, where he had 10 points in 16 games. His opportunity on Kane's line has come as a result of a Marian Hossa injury, so it will be interesting to see if he will keep getting the opportuntity when everyone is healthy. Matt Donohue

January 2015 – After putting up 23 points in 37 AHL games to begin the 2014-15 season, Teravainen was recalled on January 2nd. He has two goals and an assist in seven games and is averaging 12:27 TOI per game, playing mostly on the fourth line. Despite the limited action, he has started to get more comfortable with the NHL game. With all the hype that has surrounded Teravainen since being drafted in the first round in 2012, it’s easy to forget that he is just 20 years old and still filling out his frame. He remains a strong hold in your dynasty league and could pay dividends in yearly leagues if he starts to earn those coveted top-six minutes. Matt Donohue

 

July 2014 – Despite impressing at this month's prospect camp, the Blackhawks admitted that Teravainen still isn't quite ready to make the leap to the NHL. Anyone that saw him play down the stretch last season could tell that he still needed some seasoning in the North American game in addition to putting on some size. It is important to remember that he is just 19-years-old and a year or two with Rockford in the AHL will serve him very well. Ideally, the Blackhawks will let Teravainen spend the entire season in the AHL, but you never know with injuries and we may just see him back with the Blackhawks this season. Matt Donohue

 

 

March 2014 – The Blackhawks have recalled top prospect Teuvo Teravainen after he completed a terrific season with SM-liiga's Jokerit scoring nine goals and 44 points in 49 games finishing sixth in league scoring as a 19-year-old. Teravainen had a tremendous showing at the 2014 World Junior Championships running away with the scoring title (7GP-2G-13A-15P) on route to a Finnish Gold medal and All-star selection. His high-end puck skills, slippery elusiveness and creative offensive attack will transition perfectly into the Blackhawks roster. With Patrick Kane slated to miss t
