Teuvo Teravainen has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour.

Teravainen absorbed a heavy hit from Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nikita Zadorov in the third period on Feb. 19. Teravainen has missed two games since and will not travel with the Canes on their upcoming five-game road trip.

"I'm hoping it's not going to be too long, but it's going to be a couple games, for sure," Brind'Amour said after the game on Feb. 19. "I don't think he's going to be back any time soon."

Teravainen,who missed three games in late January while on the COVID-19 Protocol list, has recorded nine points (2g, 7a) in 12 games this season, and he posted seven of those points (2g, 5a) in his last four games.
