Found December 06, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said Friday he was unsure whether forward Teuvo Teravainen would play in the NHL later this season. The 19-year-old Teravainen signed a three-year contract with the Blackhawks in August. He is currently playing for Jokerit in the SM-liiga. He could play for the Blackhawks this season after he's finished with his season in Finland. “I’m not planning on it, but it would be a bonus if he’s done with his season,” Bowman said in a phone interview Friday. “That’s an option. He’s signed. I think there are a lot of factors that go into it -- when his season ends and where he’s at that point.” Bowman has spoken highly of Teravainen since the Blackhawks selected him with No. 18 overall pick in the 2012 draft. The Blackhawks got an extended look at Teravainen during the preseason. He appeared in two preseason games and often played on the team’s top line before returning to Finland.

Keeping Toews And Kane In Chicago

Craig Custance of ESPN answers some email... Where do you suppose the Kane and Toews deals come in at next summer money wise?

Also, if Kane and Toews do want to break the bank, does that screw the up the whole plan? Great question. I recently went...
