I made a video about all Teuvo's goals in regular season. Great start so far in the playoffs. Future star.

He's a steal if he goes anything lower than 1st overall. Best Finn since Kurri. (and Pulkkinen)

And yes, I am being sarcastic

Honestly...some of the stuff I've been reading about him...I can't believe my eyes. Next Jarri Kurri? Steal at first overall?

Jesus christ.

How can ANYONE be a steal at first overall? Steal implies some falling from expected draft position. Is there some kind of secret god round that happens before the draft that I don't know about?

EDIT: Sneaky edit.

If this is the hype that Teravainen is getting...not looking forward to hearing about Barkov.

Teräväinen scored his first career playoff goal today when Jokerit beat IFK 3-1 to take 3-0 lead in the series. Looks even less likely that's he'll play at the U-19 WJC.

Scroll down to see who's at number 19.

Can I please have this guy's job? Please? I'll do it so much better. Unless he's just trying to stir the pot with false analysis.

Its clear he can really shoot the puck and goes to the scoring areas well, but how does he skate? How are his hands? Playmaking?

I personally think they're all better than his scoring... His shot is good because he can release it pretty fast without much of wind-up. But he's more of a pass-first player IMO, he's been often compared to Patrick Kane in terms of style of play.

He's 1+2 in 3 playoff games now.

The goal is at 1:00

Could be a draft day surprise...here's what TSN's Grant McCagg has had to say about Teuvo Teräväinen on two different occassions:

If he was born a week later, he wouldn't even be eligible until the 2013 draft. Yet he's already played in 16 games for Finland at the U-18 level and has graduated full time to the Finnish Elite League, netting seven goals for Jokerit in 27 games this season.

Strengths: A speedy goal scorer with good vision and creativity. Has great hockey sense and puck-handling prowess and brings quickness and skill to the offensive zone. Creative and calm with the puck and effective on the power play.

Weaknesses: Needs to improve his balance and gain strength to take on veteran opponents. Could be grittier, will need to bulk up to handle the NHL game.

NHL upside: Has been compared to Valtteri Filppula and has the talent to score plenty of goals in the NHL if he can handle the grind.

"Scouts are raving about his performance at the recent U-18 Five Nations Cup in Pori Finland. Teravainen led the tournament with six goals and two assists in three games against strong competition, impressing scouts with his offensive capabilities and overall sense for the game. ""He could be special,"" said one scout. ""He plays off of his smarts. Good defensively. He could be the best player in the draft because of his smarts. He's got everything going for him except he's not very big.""

There have been some questions about his willingness to get his nose dirty, but with dominant performances like he had in Pori, those concerns are disappearing quickly. He's gone from being a late first round candidate to a top ten prospect, perhaps even top five in a draft lacking high-end forward depth."



Teuvo Teräväinen #86
C/W LHS | 5'11, 165
Born: 11-Sep-94, Helsinki, Finland


Top Five would put him in the MIN range, allowing him to play with countryman Granlund.

I think hes more like Toews meets Datsyuk. Also if someone here doesn't know Teravainen is Center, not RW or LW as he's listed on everywhere.

It's true, but he's played the whole season on the wing. IIRC he played 2 games in the U-20 NT where he played center. Obviously he can play both.

Originally he's a centre forward, but playing wing is not a problem.

He played centre forward at the 5 nations in February and also in some Jr.A games. Edit: and that one U20 game against Sweden.

I think Teravainen is very talented but these mock drafts are just as iffy as the ones made by the NHL writers.

I took a look at the previous mock drafts done by these scouts in 2010 and 2011 and here are some obvious question marks.

Jeff Skinner at #29
Kiril Kabanov at #12
Jordan Schroeder at #6
Jeremy Morin at #9
Tyler Biggs at #9

I have a feeling these are a mix of still being 3 months before the draft, a few months before the combine + interviews + invitation to train at team facilities for testing and evaluation, and without the final meeting where the scouts shares their reports with other area scouts.

So I think the mock draft still has its use but you need to bring your own insight as well.

It's interesting to hear that he's also center.
Every time I've seen him, I've thought that he plays like one.

I was already interested in him due to the lack of high-end forwards in this draft and in the Sabres pipeline, but the fact that he's at least been a center at some point makes him that much more interesting.

He's also played some games as a center in Sm-liiga. I remember lines with at least Pulkkinen&Lahti as well as Ruuttu&Hännikäinen.

I think height is not a problem for him because when he skates he doesn't make himself 'look small'. Compared to some guys who have a very low skating style, his back is quite straight when he skates. It also seems like he's grown a bit during this season.
