I was thinking that Teräväinen could get a shot at playing in the big league during the exhibition games. I mean, if Jokerit want to play Pulkkinen with Filppula(which could make sense), Teräväinen could try taking Pulkkinen's place as 'Janne Lahti's playmaker' since there aren't many other candidates for that place... They just need some good two-way guy in the middle, Kerälä wouldn't be enough. I admit this scenario is pretty far-fetched, but plausable
I actually think it's very likely that he gets to play in a couple of these European Trophy games, since Hännikäinen(who got a contract the same time as Teräväinen) already made his debut.
