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 drafte
