According to this article Blackhawks would have wanted to change the plans regarding Teravainen after his visit. In the end, the clubs decided to go with the original plan and Teravainen returning to Helsinki.
As it was within Blackhawks rights to call Teravainen to play in NHL, I think they tried to get Jokerit to free him from his contract so that they could assign him to AHL in case he wouldn't have been able to stay in the NHL yet. Or it might be the case that there's a clause in the FEL-NHL trade agreement of some kind of trade window when players can be called up so that FEL teams wouldn't have to give up their core players during the season.
Either case, it sounds like Teravainen did impress alot for the two clubs to even discuss the option of him playing in the NHL this season.
