The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have recalled forward Teuvo Teravainen (TAY-voh tair-uh-VIGH-nehn) from the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.
Teravainen, 20, ranks second on the IceHogs with 23 points (6G, 17A) and 92 shots on goal in 33 games this year. The Helsinki, Finland, native recorded his first career three-point outing (1G, 2A) on Dec. 28 vs. the Chicago Wolves and now has 10 points (3G, 7A) in his last 13 contests. Chicago’s first-round pick (18th overall) in the 2012 National Hockey League Draft tallied four shots on goal in three regular-season tilts with the Blackhawks last year; he made his NHL debut on March 25, 2014, vs. the Dallas Stars.
The Blackhawks return to action on Sunday when they host the Dallas Stars at 7 p.m. The game can be seen on WGN-TV and heard on WGN Radio AM-720.
