Earlier today we talked about the Chicago Blackhawks prospects that appeared in ESPN’s top 100 well now a Blackhawks prospect has received another honor. Teuvo Teravainen will be participating in the 2014 NHLPA Rookie Showcase.
From the NHLPA official site;
“Thirty-three of the top NHL® prospects/rookies will gather in Toronto at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (site of the former Maple Leaf Gardens) on Saturday, August 23rd for the 2014 NHLPA Rookie Showcase. Now in its sixth year, this unique event provides Upper Deck – the official trading card partner of the NHLPA and the NHL – with an exclusive opportunity to photograph many of the game’s top young prospects/rookies in their official NHL team uniforms, in shots that will be used for upcoming trading card and memorabilia launches.”
So basically it’s a glorified scrimmage where these rookies can get their pictures taken for trading cards and what not. The cool thing here is that Teuvo is considered one of the top 33 prospects in the NHL.
