The 18-year-old Teravainen was the Hawks' first-round selection (18th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He had 13 goals and 18 assists in 44 regular-season games with SM-liiga’s Jokerit of the Finnish League last season. The Helsinki Finland native was the league’s rookie of the year in 2011-12 after recording 11 goals and seven assists.
Tervainen was among the top players at the 2013 under-20 world championship with five goals and six assists in six games. It is expected Teravainen will remain in Europe for one more year before coming to North America to play.
