Blackhawks consider adding Teravainen down stretch

Sunday, 03.16.2014 / 7:16 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will discuss adding 19-year-old forward Teuvo Teravainen, whose season has ended in Finland, coach Joel Quenneville said Sunday.

Teravainen's team in the Finnish Liiga, Jokerit, was eliminated from the playoffs Sunday. That means the 2012 first-round pick could join the Blackhawks soon, depending on internal conversations Quenneville said would take place following Chicago's game Sunday at United Center against the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET; TSN2, NBCSN).

Teravainen, the 18th pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, participated in Chicago's training camp and left an impression on Quenneville prior to heading back to Finland. He continued to impress by helping Finland win the gold medal at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

"That's something we'll talk about," Quenneville said of Teravainen's arrival. "We saw what he's capable of in camp, and I guess there was some real good progression to his season, as well, so you know, it could happen at some point."

Letang will practice with Penguins on Monday

Sunday, 03.16.2014 / 4:36 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang will return to full practice Monday, less than two months since suffering a stroke, coach Dan Bylsma said Sunday.

Doctors ruled Letang, who has not played since Jan. 27, is well enough to return after not practicing with the Penguins in six weeks. Bylsma said the team knew there was a chance he could return to practice at this point, but the 2013 Norris Trophy finalist "still has some other things to go through."

Bylsma said the date of Letang's full return is to be determined.

"He's been working out. He's been skating on his own, doing quite a bit on his own," Bylsma said. "It's not a complete surprise."

Olympic star Shannon Szabados debuts in SPHL

Goalie Shannon Szabados made history Saturday night when the two-time Olympic gold medalist led the Columbus Cottonmouths of the Southern Professional Hockey League onto the ice for their game against the Knoxville Ice Bears.

Szabados, who helped Canada win the women's ice hockey gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, stopped 27 shots but wound up losing when Knoxville overcame an early two-goal deficit for a 4-3 victory before 4,295 fans in Columbus, Ga.

"It was fun," Szabados told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer after becoming the first female player in the SPHL's 10-year history. "I saw a few Szabados shirts out there. It was definitely a great moment."

Maatta getting bigger role on Penguins blue line

Sunday, 03.16.2014 / 1:20 AM / NHL Insider

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- If Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma has his way, rookie defenseman Olli Maatta will get serious consideration for the Calder Trophy.

As injuries have decimated the Penguins' defense this season, the 19-year-old's role on the blue line has continued to grow. With top-four defensemen Kris Letang (stroke) and Paul Martin (broken hand) gone for the rest of the regular season, Maatta has played more than 20 minutes in eight of Pittsburgh's past nine games, with a high of 24:38 against the San Jose Sharks on March 6.

Maatta has scored four times during that stretch, including twice against San Jose, and entered the weekend with nine goals, 28 points and a plus-12 rating in 64 games while averaging 18:08 of ice time. Those numbers may not compare with some other Calder hopefuls, but Bylsma believes the 19-year-old's value goes well beyond statistics.
