#Blackhawks reassign forward Teuvo Teravainen to the Rockford IceHogs.

When Teuvo first arrived in Chicago Stan Bowman said his contract would not be a factor, but they had an obvious change of mind after the Pittsburgh Penguins game which was far and away his most impressive game. After the Pittsburgh game Teuvo became a permanent fixture in the press box on game nights.
Teuvo needs to play on North American ice after playing his career strictly in Europe, so if he’s not playing in Chicago he needs to be playing in Rockford getting some experience too. The Rockford Ice Hogs have been struggling offensively when Brandon Pirri went to the Florida Panthers and the Jeremy Morin was recalled to Chicago so they will be pretty excited to get some offensive genius on their roster with the Teuvo arrival.
Teuvo Time arrives in Rockford which is a win win for the organization playing time without contract worries. The question is why they just didn’t do this from the beginning!
What do you think? Should Teuvo started in Rockford?
