2012 first round Blackhawk draft selection Teuvo Teravainen is back from a month long hiatus due to a broken finger. His team Jokerit is probably very happy to have back in the line up. Unfortunately for the rest of the teams in the Finnish League SM-Liiga he has come back with a fury while leading his team Jokerit  up the league standings. 

What has Teuvo been up to? Well since he has come back here is a list:

11/20/12 - he had one assist in 4-3 win over Karpat.

11/22/12 - he tallied one goal and one assist to lead his team past Lock in a decisive 4-0 win. 

11/24/12 - he had one goal in a 5-1 defeat to JYP.

11/25/12 - he scored two goals and one assist in Jokerit's win over Blues 5-3.

11/29/12 - he scored one goal and one assist helping his team win over Tappara 3-2 in a close bout. 

Jokerit is second in a fourteen team league. Teuvo is fourth on his team of leading scorers or strikers as they are called in Finland but has only played in 19 games. His stats are as follows:

GP    G     A    P    PIM    +/-

19     7      8    15    2      -3
