Teravainen (upper body) will return to the lineup Friday against the Ducks. While coach Joel Quenneville did indicate he would return, he didn't indicate who he would replace, so it's a bit tough to speculate where he'll slot in at this point. Regardless, it appears the upper-body injury that held him out of the last three games is no longer an issue.
Teravainen won't play Wednesday against the Sharks, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Teravainen will miss a third straight game Wednesday with an upper-body injury, but he was able to return to practice Tuesday, indicating he's likely close to making a return to game action. The 21-year-old forward will hope to draw back into the Hawks' lineup Friday against the Ducks.
Teravainen returned to practice Tuesday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Teravainen has missed the Hawks' last two games with an upper-body injury. His return to practice Tuesday is certainly encouraging, but he didn't participate in line rushes during the workout, indicating he likely won't be available for Wednesday's tilt against the Sharks. If he isn't able to go Wednesday against San Jose, Teravainen's next chance to draw back into Chicago's lineup won't come until Friday against the Ducks.
Teravainen (upper body) is expected to be sidelined for a couple games, but isn't dealing with a serious injury, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Teravainen logged just 5:33 of ice time before exiting Wednesday's tilt against the Oilers with an upper-body injury. It isn't clear how he suffered the ding, but it isn't believed to be a serious issue, as Teravainen is only expected to miss a few games with the ailment. Given his recovery timetable, the 21-year-old forward will hope to return to action Wednesday against San Jose.
Teravainen suffered an upper-body injury in Wednesday's game against the Oilers and will not return. Teravainen registered just 5:33 TOI before being forced from the contest. The Blackhawks have not provided any other details about his setback, so it remains to be seen if it will cost him any further action.
