Teravainen was held pointless in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs, marking the sixth time in the past seven games he has been held off the scoresheet. Expectations were high for Teravainen coming into this season following his career-high 64-point campaign last year. However, given that the Canes are still not one of the league's powerhouse teams (their 2.45 goals per game rank them 29th out of 31 teams), as good as Teravainen is, he just doesn't have the supporting cast to maintain those career numbers. He's currently on pace to crack the 50-point mark, but even that will be a challenge if he doesn't get back on track soon.
Teravainen scored a goal in Friday's 4-1 win over the Panthers. Teravainen now has two goals and seven points in the last seven games with four on the power play. The 24-year-old was too unselfish at times in this game, passing up clear shots to try setting up Sebastian Aho, but he still fired five shots on goal.
Teravainen recorded a goal and a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings. Teravainen's recent four-game mini-slump now appears to be a thing of the past, as he recorded his fourth multi-point game of the season, giving him 13 points in 17 games. If he keeps up his current pace, he will easily blow past the career-high 41 points he posted last season. The Hurricanes are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NHL (2.53 goals per game, 26th in the league), but Teravainen is definitely worth owning for fantasy purposes, despite the team's overall offensive struggles. Don't overlook him when filling out your lineups on any given night.
Teravainen scored his team's lone goal Sunday in a 2-1 loss to the Islanders at home. In addition to the second-period goal, Teravainen dished out three hits and fired three shots on net Sunday. The marker was his third snipe of the season, upping his 2018-19 point total to 11. The Finnish-born forward and the Hurricanes will look to rebound from this home loss Tuesday when they go up against the Bruins.
Teravainen posted a goal, an assist, plus-2 rating and five shots on goal in a 4-3 shootout victory against the Sharks on Friday. The 24-year-old finally registered his second goal of the season, but Teravainen has been racking up the assists. He has eight of those in 10 games, giving him 10 points in as many contests -- that's extremely impressive considering his shooting percentage is 4.4 percent lower than it was last season. With a career-best plus-9 rating and a concerted effort on shooting the puck more often, all Teravainen needs is a little more puck luck to be a consistent fantasy producer.
