The kid is really quite a complete package and his skating helps him get out of trouble when he makes the occasional junior-mistakes. Still won't be a 1st rounder because he won't get this much icetime for the rest of the season, which sucks but there's really nothing he can do about it(Hahl, Pulkkinen not in the lineup right now).
In newest Urheilulehti they interviewed one of the analysists who make those fantasy drafts at nhl.com. Mostly they talked about Määttä and Teräväinen. He had Teräväinen ranked 28th, but said that many scouts had him ranked higher than that. Talented kids always drop to the second round, but I expect Teräväinen to be drafted somewhere around 20-30.
