2 center of the future toiling away with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League in Teuvo Teravainen. Nam Y. Huh/Associated Press At some point, Teravainen will join the Blackhawks. It could be later this year, it might be at the start of the 2015-16 season, or perhaps in 2016-17. General manager Stan Bowman wants Teravainen to be ready for the job when they bring him up.
