Chicago Blackhawks Hockey - The much anticipated arrival of Finnish hockey star Teuvo Teravainen has finally happened, as the Chicago Blackhawks officially recalled the 19-year-old center to the big squad. Teravainen (most media and fans have agreed to just call the kid TT) will be on the bench tonight when the Blackahawks take on the Carolina Hurricanes at the UC. Coach Q was on WGN this morning and said he wasn’t sure if TT would get any ice time tonight. After a long flight from Finland and then what is sure to be a hectic first day would put a lot of doubt in TT playing tonight. To make room for TT the Blackhawks put Patrick Kane on long term injured reserved (LTIR) meaning Kane won’t be back until the playoffs. The Blackhawks also called up winger Jeremy Morin and Morin should see the ice tonight. TT will wear number 86 for the Blackhawks and to see a highlight video and Teravainen’s stats in Finland just click the button below. Treavainen’s Stats and Highlights Pressure On Teravainen Teuvo Teravainen has a lot of pressure on him and he hasn’t even played one shift in the NHL. Expectations are already high for a kid that won’t turn 20 until September and now that he is coming over to a team that is getting ready to defend their championship in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the pressure is mounting. Adding to that that pressure, Kane is now done for the rest of the regular season and Blackhawks fans seem to be expecting a lot from the kid. IMPORTANT…What fans need to realize is that Teravainen still needs to learn the NHL game and if he plays 10 games the Blackhawks have to pay him for a whole season. What will most likely happen is Teravainen will play 9 games and the Hawks will use him in the playoffs if he can show them in those 9 games that he is NHL ready. Teuvo Teravainen isn’t going to make or break the Blackhawks this season. Yes, he can add to an already deeply talented team, but it is still up to guys like Toews, Hossa, Sharp and Keith to carry this team.
