Teuvo Teravainen regards the 2016-17 campaign as a step forward.
"I think I had my ups and downs but I think my overall game is better," Teravainen said. "It took a little time at the start to get to know the guys and everything. When I got to know everybody and got to know the system, I think I started playing better." This was the 22-year-old forward's first season with Carolina after starting his career with the Chicago Blackhawks. He's set new career-highs this season with 15 goals and 41 points in 79 games, though there was some hope that he'd take a bigger step forward than that. Regardless, he has more untapped offensive upside to consider going into the 2017-18 campaign. Apr 8 - 10:13 AM

Teuvo Teravainen has shifted from right wing back to center.

"I want him to skate more, hang on to pucks and make plays," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said of Teravainen. "He’s very comfortable as a winger or a center. I think he moves his feet and is a little bit more involved offensively in the middle." Teravainen has 11 goals and 28 points in 52 contests this season. He is projected to play alongside Jeff Skinner and Lee Stempniak.
Feb 17 - 4:37 AM

Teuvo Teravainen, who was a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, will be back in against the Capitals.

Teravainen was a minus-3 in Friday's blowout loss to the Penguins, which probably contributed to his scratching. He's expected to center the fourth line with Joakim Nordstrom and Viktor Stalberg on his wings. He has 10 goals and 24 points in 45 games this season.
Jan 23 - 7:00 PM

Teuvo Teravainen was made a surprise scratched against Columbus on Saturday.

Through 45 games with the Hurricanes this season the 22-year-old has posted 10 goals and 14 points along with a 12.7% shooting mark. With just a bit more time he'll easily surpass his career highs of 13 goals and 35 points set just a season ago.
Jan 21 - 5:03 PM

Teuvo Teravainen was limited to just 8:56 of ice time in Friday's 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

He had a minus-3 rating in the contest and coach Bill Peters didn't like the effort Teravainen was making defensively. He had one goal and two assists in two contests before Friday's match to give him 24 points this season.
Jan 21 - 8:42 AM

Teuvo Teravainen had the overtime winner Friday night against Boston.

The Hurricanes rallied back from a 2-0 deficit for a 3-2 victory to stretch their home point streak to 10 games. Carolina has a 9-0-1 record over that span. Teravainen has nine goals and 16 points in 33 games this year.

Teuvo Teravainen had a goal and an assist in Carolina's 4-3 shootout loss to Washington on Friday.

That was Teravainen's second multi-point game in the span of five contests. He has eight goals and 15 points in 30 contests in 2016-17.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 10:35:00 AM

Teuvo Teravainen scored the first and last goal of the night for the Carolina Hurricanes, but it was not enough to stem a 6-5 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.

Teravainen’s first goal of the contest came at the 19:22 minute mark of the first and it tied the game at the time. His second goal was scored at 9:21 and lifted the Canes to a two-point advantage, but he was answered by Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry. This pair of goals snapped an eight-game span in which he failed to score a single point. His last goal came nine games ago on November 18th, so players could be forgiven if he was not on their roster.

Teuvo Teravainen will shift to center on Tuesday night.

He has played in the middle before and will fill in for injured center Jordan Staal against the New York Rangers. Teravainen is projected to play between Sebastian Aho and Lee Stempniak.

Teuvo Teravainen had a goal and three assists Saturday.

The forward who was dealt from Chicago in the off-season, has been coming on of late as he found the back of the net Thursday after a seven game pointless streak. He now has four goals and eight points in 14 games and we can start recommending him in deeper leagues.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 06:50:00 AM

Teuvo Teravainen ended a seven-game point slump Thursday night.

He scored his third goal of the season and accounted for two shots against Anaheim. Teravainen has four points in his first 13 games with the Hurricanes.
Sat, Nov 12, 2016 08:13:00 AM

Teuvo Teravainen has seen his playing time go down in the shift from Chicago to Carolina so far.

We're still early into the 2016-17 campaign, but that's the opposite of what we thought would happen. Rather than get a bigger role with Carolina after being acquired by the Hurricanes, Teravainen is averaging 14:22 minutes per game, down from 15:21 in 2015-16. He has two goals, an assist, and a minus-five rating in nine contests this season.

With training camp underway, Teuvo Teravainen is getting a chance to adjust to working with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Teravainen was taken by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and won the Stanley Cup with them in 2015. He was seeing his role with the franchise steadily grow, but Chicago dealt him to Carolina over the summer. "That’s a great team and when you make that team you know you are a good player," Teravainen said Monday. "It’s really tough to make the top two lines and be a difference-maker. Everything is new for me now. It’s a fresh start, and I’m pretty excited about it. It’s a good chance to take the next step and be a difference-maker here." He should play a sizable role with the Hurricanes and that could set him up for a 50-60 point campaign, but just keep in mind that he's still a significant risk.

Carolina GM Ron Francis is excited to have Teuvo Teravainen join the Hurricanes.

"It's not often a player who was a first-round draft pick like Teuvo, at his age and with his skill, becomes available in a deal," said Francis. "We think he will be a very good addition, skill-wise, to our team. He has a lot of upside." Teravainen should be expected to skate on one of Carolina's top-two lines in 2016-17.

Teuvo Teravainen has been traded to Carolina.

He was sent to the Hurricanes along with Bryan Bickell in exchange for a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft and a third-round pick in 2017. In 2015-16, Teravainen registered 13 goals and 35 points in 78 games.
