The next step in Teuvomania or Teuvowatch or whatever you want to call is supposed to come tomorrow and it was announced by TSN insider Bob McKenzie via our favorite social media median Twitter:

It was McKenzie that got all of us Blackhawks fans put in a frenzy well probably just excited when he made these announcements on Twitter earlier this morning.

The question after the announcement tomorrow will be when and how will Teravainen make it to the roster.  The Hawks as everyone knows is in salary cap jail right now, but the easiest yet hardest to hear would be to put Patrick Kane on LTIR which would effectively end his regular season, but if the doctors are convinced he’s going to be out for three weeks than his regular season is basically over anyways.  With over 6 million on LTIR , it would fit newly signed Carey, Teravainen, and even Jeremy Morin on to the active roster.

The real news of the night is that another step will be hurdled on Friday with the appearance of Teravainen in Chicago. One final thing that  is true especially with Kane being injured that all Blackhawks fans may be expecting a superstar and we are really getting a kid with an incredible skill set that is still a teenager.

It’s still exciting to me! How do you feel?
