Yeah I know what I look like...I swear I graduated Junoir High.
The player that we didn’t see coming.
Teräväinen is an incredibly gifted offensive talent. He is a marvel with the puck and possesses elite potential that could have put him in the top 10 draft picks if the draft wasn’t so top heavy with defensemen. Teräväinen has great vision, and when you include his creativity on the ice, he should become an elite playmaker for the Blackhawks.
Just his offensive abilities alone will make Teräväinen a fun player to watch this year, but it will be the scrutiny he will face from analysts and fans thoughts on his selection. It was universally accepted that the Chicago brass should have selected a goalie. With Malcolm Subban still on the board as well as every other goalie in the draft, it is questionable that the Blackhawks drafted an elite offensive playmaker.
Watching Teräväinen play will be fun, but the constant comparisons to other players, that some say should have been selected instead, is going to lead to a lot of fun barroom arguments between Hawks fans.
