Teravainen netted a power-play goal in Tuesday's 4-3 road win over the Panthers. Teammate Jordan Staal sent the puck so hard against the boards that it bounced right into the path of an attacking Teravainen, who still had to bury it from that tough angle nearly parallel to the goal stripe. This is just the second campaign for the Finn as a full-time NHLer, but he's up to 37 points (15 goals, 22 assists) in 70 games -- two more than he registered with the Blackhawks in eight more games last season. The best is yet to come.
Teravainen recorded a second-period assist and logged 19:06 of ice time during Friday's loss to Arizona. With just two assists through his past 10 games, Teravainen is hardly moving the fantasy needle of late. He's had a respectable campaign with 11 goals, 30 points and 104 shots through 60 games, but he's still nothing more than a fringe asset in the majority of seasonal leagues. Additionally, considering his lack of goal-scoring ability and low shot volume, you shouldn't fret fading him in daily contests.
Teravainen posted a power-play assist in Friday's 2-1 win against the Oilers. Teravainen has posted three power-play assists over his past two outings. His ice time has been a bit erratic lately, but if he can continue to produce and stay on the power-play unit he can be a useful fantasy option. Teravainen has still managed a goal and six points over his past seven outings despite his up-and-down time on ice.
Teravainen scored a goal and added an assist during Saturday's win over the Islanders. It's been a solid season for Teravainen with 10 goals and 23 points through 43 games, and he is well on his way to a career-best campaign offensively. However, the 22-year-old forward still has more value in keeper/dynasty settings because he hardly moves the needle in the majority of seasonal leagues due to a lack of peripheral coverage (78 shots, eight PIM, 10 hits).
Teravainen (illness) isn't listed among the scratches for Tuesday evening's contest, indicating he'll be in the Hurricanes' lineup against the Devils. The Hurricanes and fantasy owners alike will be relieved to see Teravainen won't be forced to miss any time due to his illness, as he's been red-hot of late, racking up four points (one goal, three assists) in his last four games. He'll slot into a top-six role for Tuesday's game, centering Sebastian Aho and Lee Stempniak on Carolina's second line.
