Speaking of young players to finally get their shot, we hit Teuvo! For two years we were asking for Teuvo time to arrive in Chicago, and even though he did make it to Chicago and stuck the regular season it wasn’t exactly what many of us were expecting from Teravainen.

Teuvo showed flashes during the regular season, but in the end he played 34 games, being buried at times on the fourth line and scoring only 4 goals with 5 assists. He played wing and some center but there are rumblings about putting Teuvo, due to his improved defensive play, back at center. So training camp will be interesting, as we’ll see where he lines up and who’s he playing with.

One thing we should know for sure is that Teuvo will be playing with a lot of confidence from his playoff performance. In only 18 games during the postseason, Teuvo scored four times with 6 assists and really arrived in the hockey world in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, scoring the tying goal and creating the game-winning

goal by forcing a turnover.

Teuvo looked like he was gaining confidence in every game on the ice, so this upcoming season should really be a coming-out party (regular-season edition), and this is another reason why I can’t wait for training camp to get started.
