Finnish forward and team captain Teuvo Teravainen has turned in an impressive performance so far at the 2014 World Junior Championship. He has worn the “C” with great distinction, and now has helped to bring his country to their first gold medal game appearance at this tournament in 13 years.
Finland downed Canada, 5-1, to move on to the gold medal contest. Teravainen led the way on offense, posting two goals and adding an assist with one goal coming on a penalty shot in the third period. His three points tied him with Sweden's Filip Forsberg for the tournament lead in scoring at 12 points.
Teravainen, a Chicago Blackhawks prospect, plays for Jokerit in Liiga, the top men's league in Finland. In 29 games for that club, he has scored three goals and chipped in 14 assists for 17 points.
Teravainen spoke with the media following his country's win over Canada, with some of his comments being captured in this Hockey's Future video.
