20-year-old Finnish NHL player Teuvo Teravainen will play tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks as the Stanley Cup Playoffs advance.
According to eliteprospects, Teuvo is a solid scorer, he has fantastic on-ice vision and excellent hockey IQ as well as very good puck-handling. Teräväinen is very creative and his playmaking ability makes him effective on the powerplay. He is often able to play his way out of trouble.
The Helsinki, Finland native first played with the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL)’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl and the Jokerit organization in Finland before being drafted in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Blackhawks.
He made his debut for the Blackhawks in 2014 but the rookie centerman has made a name for himself this year. How can we ever forget Teräväinen made a large impact in Game 1 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals, scoring the tying goal before stripping the puck from the Tampa Bay Lightning.
That made him the fourth-youngest player to ever score a goal in the Stanley Cup Final at age 20, and the second-youngest to have a multi-point game in the Cup Final since 1990, according to Wikipedia. In game two, he briefly gave the Hawks a 2-1 lead.
The 5’11” 176 lbs player is also a bigger name in his native country. He’s represented his home country on several youth levels, most notably in the World Junior Championships. As the the captain of the team he lead Finland to final, winning against Sweden.
What do you think we’ll see from the hunky player in tonight’s game three? For sure, Teuvo is full of surprises as he keeps getting better and better; could it be due to the fact that a special someone keeps him focus? We are not sure if he is dating or not but keep posted for any updates from him!
