Teravainen and Bryan Bickell were traded to the Hurricanes on Wednesday in exchange for a 2016 second-round and 2017 third-round draft pick. He's just 21 years old, but Teravainen is a Stanley Cup champion, having won it with the Blackhawks in 2015. He was commonly stuck in a bottom-six role with Chicago but should have no problems sticking on a scoring line for the Hurricanes, a team that ranked 27th in the league by averaging 2.39 goals per game. Still on an entry-level contract, Teravainen is versatile and has supreme on-ice vision. He potted 13 goals and 22 assists in his first full season in 2015-16. He's bound to go through growing pains as a young player adjusting to a new team, but his long-term upside should not be overlooked.
Teravainen (illness) took part in pregame warmups, indicating he will be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Jets, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Teravainen has played pretty well of late, notching five points (one goal, four assists) in his last eight games. He'll slot into his usual role centering Chicago's third line in Friday's matchup with Winnipeg.
Teravainen's status for Friday's contest is in question due to an illness, Eric Lear of Blackhawks TV reports. Expect another update on the 21-year-old forward closer to game-time, but this is the second time this week an illness has put his status in jeopardy. Teravainen's ice time has dropped a bit over the last couple game (averaging about 13 minutes), so it may be best to avoid him in daily contests for a bit (even if he plays) and to monitor his ice time moving forward.
Teravainen (illness) will dress for Wednesday's game against the Flyers, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Teravainen's status for Wednesday appeared in question after he skipped practice Tuesday, but it appears the worst of his illness is behind him. The youngster averages 15:17 of ice time this season, but he saw a small dip last game (13:51). Still, he's benefited from moving down the depth chart, tallying a point in five of the last seven games. There could be a shakeup of the lines Wednesday, so it's a bit unclear where he will slot in for the evening's contest against the Flyers.
Teravainen didn't practice Tuesday due to an illness, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Teravainen's absence at practice Tuesday leaves his availability for Wednesday's matchup with Philadelphia in doubt. The Finnish winger's owners will hope his ailment doesn't force him to miss any time, as he's played well of late, notching eight points (two goals, six assists) and 24 shots on goal in his last 11 games. The Blackhawks should provide an update on Teravainen's status ahead of puck drop Wednesday evening.
