IMO Kalle Torniainen is the more likely one, since he's an excellent skater and could therefore be seen as a potential replacement for either Toni Rajala or Julius Junttila. Teuvo Teräväinen is perhaps a slightly more skilled individual, but isn't as fast on his skates as Torniainen. Both are fairly smallish and need to bulk up a lot, but the puck skills are there. They aren’t likely NHL prospects at this point, but could develop into elite players for European hockey like for example Niko Kapanen and Timo Pärssinen.
