Tbh, I wasnt sold on the Hawks drafting a FIN on draft day considering the past history for players other than goalies but Teravainens showing so far has been outstanding.

From his showing at rookie camp, his game looks identical to Kanes. Very elusive skater which is good for transitioning to the NHL b/c his smaller size wont be that much of an issue. Sets up on the half boards and makes plays.

While Jokerit needs TT at center, I dont think he has enough upper body strength for play over here and will probably get hammered at the dot. Dont know how effective he'll be if he stays at center but he definitely can play wing right now.
