As some of you may know, I have a special place in my heart for Finnish Ice Hockey players, what do you think about Teravainen? Do you think he's worth all the talk that he's receiving right now? Where do you see him being picked in the draft?

I think he will go higher than most expect. Probably in the top ten around 8th would be my guess

I agree with you kbooks. I do think he'll go a bit higher than most think. I am hoping that the Ducks will take him but I don't see him going at 6th.

I have him at seven in my most recent mock (http://www.nhlmockdraft.org/). Kid has excellent vision and smarts to go with a real killer offensive instinct. Could be the best player selected this year... If he gets stronger and brings a consistent (impressive) effort-level every night he could be a dominant forward.

Someone in the top-five could even fall in-love with him enough to mess up every draft board from here to Anchorage... he's one of the biggest kids to watch on the 22nd.

That is a real possibility BobMand. He certainly does have a lot to offer and stranger things have happened.

Finnish forward Teuvo Teravainen has experienced a slow, steady climb up the 2012 draft prospect charts, to the point where the Helsinki, Finland native is considered a legitimate top 10 selection for the coming NHL Draft.

As a point of reference, in the ISS rankings back in October of 2011, ISS's first release for the 2011-12 season, Teravainen sat in the 54th position. In that scouting organization's latest rankings in May, Teravainen is among the top players available for the 2012 NHL Draft by virtue of his being ranked 8th overall.

But Teravainen's rise isn't necessarily a fluky one, however, as he turned in good performances in international play during the 2010-11 season. Teravainen continued his strong international play this season, including a good offensive showing at the 2012 Under-18 World Junior Championship where he scored two goals and added six assists for eight points in six tournament games.
