Chicago Blackhawks 2012 NHL Draft Weekend Tracker: Picks, Trades and Analysis

Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman saw a draft-day surprise fall into his lap Friday night when it came time to use the organization's first-round pick.

Finnish forward Teuvo Teravainen was available when the 'Hawks turn came and Bowman used the 18th overall pick on a 17-year-old scorer.

The organization has eight picks in the draft along with a host of prospects that could be moved if Bowman desires. Right now, 23 players are signed to the active roster. To add a player of consequence, someone might have to move.

There was a flurry of activity at this time last summer. Brian Campbell and Troy Brouwer were sent packing and two of the players selected in the draft suited up for the Blackhawks this past season.

Whether you think Bowman needs to overhaul the roster or that he is in need of a big move or two, this weekend could be when he decides to the trigger on a deal that brings in some fresh faces.

I'll be updating this post throughout the weekend as events demand. For now, let's take stock in where the 'Hawks sit after day one of draft weekend.
