RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Blackhawks first round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft is moving closer to seeing time with the big club. The reports of his play in the Finnish Elite League are very good and while he will most likely be playing in Finland again, he is getting closer to moving across the pond. He's an elite talent. Make sure he's on your keeper squad.
What a steal for the Hawks. No one raised his draft stock more this season than the talented Teravainen whose pure skill ranks him alongside Nail Yakupov as the draft class’ best. The knock on him is his size – he’s just 5-11 and about 160 lbs. But his elite vision, skill and offensive upside erase those concerns, and his flexibility to play both center and wing make him a potentially dangerous scoring forward. His fantasy potential is among the highest of the 2012 draft. He showed off his puck-handling ability at July's Prospect Camp and was considered the best player at the camp. Just don’t expect to see him soon – he was just four days removed from being eligible for the 2013 draft, so he has some developing to do.
