Blackhawks agree to 3-year contract with 2012 1st-round pick Teravainen

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to a three-year contract with 2012 first-round draft pick Teuvo Teravainen on Thursday.

The 18-year-old Teravainen, a forward from Finland, was the 18th overall pick. He had 13 goals and 18 assists in 44 regular-season games for SM-liiga's Jokerit last season.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
