We wrote an article last month about Chicago Blackhawks prospect Teuvo Teravainen and how we couldn't wait for him to come to the NHL. We raved about his play making ability, his speed and his stick handling. After watching the World Juniors Championship over the last couple of weeks, it is easy to see that Teravainen didn't let us down.
Teuvo Teravainen was Finland's captain throughout the tournament and was the main catalyst for their success. He helped carry them in several games, leading them to a Gold Medal. In the process they knocked off Canada, as well as host-Country Sweden in the Gold Medal game.
Teravainen led all players with 15 points (3 G, 12 A) throughout the tournament. He had two goals and one assist against Canada in the semi-final and he recorded three assists in the Gold Medal game against Sweden. Teravainen was also named to the 2014 Media All-Star team and has put the world on notice that he is going to be an exceptional talent when he comes over to the NHL.
It's still unknown when Teravainen will make his NHL debut, but we expect him to compete for a spot on the opening day roster during training camp. If all goes well for Teravainen, he should be placed on the second line, centering one of the league's best players in Patrick Kane. The combination of Teravainen and Kane could be a lethal duo for years to come.
