Teravainen has been diagnosed with a concussion and will miss Carolina's next two games at a minimum, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports. Recoveries from concussions are impossible to predict, so Teravainen could be facing an extended absence. Brock McGinn will likely get the first crack at replacing Teravainen in the Hurricanes' top six Wednesday against Tampa Bay.
Teravainen (upper body) is expected to miss a couple of games, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports. Teravainen was out Saturday versus the Lightning. Based on the report from Smith, Teravainen isn't expected to be back in the lineup for Monday's rematch versus the Lightning. While the Finn is out, Steven Lorentz should see fourth-line minutes.
Teravainen (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports. It's unclear when Teravainen suffered this injury, and there's no clear timeline for his return. Teravainen has picked up nine points through 12 games this year. Steven Lorentz will enter the lineup as a result of Teravainen's absence.
Teravainen picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-3 win over Chicago. Both his helpers came in the third period as Carolina scored three straight goals to break open a 2-2 tie. Teravainen took a while to find his form after the Canes' long layoff, going nearly a month without a point, but the 26-year-old now has two goals and seven points in the last four games.
Teravainen matched his career high with four points, collecting a goal and three assists, in Monday's 7-3 win over Columbus. He also had three shots and was plus-3. Teravainen played a central role in Carolina's rally from 3-1 down, figuring in on four of the Hurricanes' final six goals. He assisted on Brock McGinn's goal that tied the game at 3-3 less than two minutes into the second period, then he scored one of his own to put Carolina ahead just 27 seconds later. He picked up two more helpers the rest of the way, assisting on Nino Niederreiter's power-play tally and McGinn's second of the night. Teravainen's performance could have been even better, but he had a goal wiped out on an offside review earlier in the night. After enduring a seven-game point drought, the 26-year-old has broken out for five points in his last two contests.
