Teuvo Teräväinen Dominates: USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp Recap

The week of games at USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp has come to an end, and Blackhawks prospect Teuvo Teräväinen was the most noticeable player at the event.

Teräväinen led all players with eight points (three goals, five assists) in five games with Finland's team, and finished the camp with a dominant performance against Sweden on Sunday. He scored both of Finland's goals in regulation and finished with a goal in the shootout as Finland won 3-2.

In the game, defensemen Robin Norell and Carl Dahlström were held scoreless; Norell had two penalty minutes. Dahlström scored one goal and had one assist during the week, with his goal coming against Canada on Saturday. He spent most of the week skating on Sweden's second defensive pair. Norell, who skated on Sweden's third pair, had six penalty minutes during the week.

On Sunday, Tyler Motte was a healthy scratch for the United States. He did not register a point in the two games he played on the unified US team, spending both games playing a physical game on the third line. While skating with the USA's White squad early in the week, Motte was credited with one assist and four penalty minutes. Motte will play at the University of Michigan this fall.

Forwards Vince Hinostroza and John Hayden started the week with the United States, but were among 13 skaters cut mid-week. Hinostroza had an assist in both games he played, and will join the Fighting Irish at Notre Dame this season. Hayden, who is headed to Yale this season, had two penalty minutes and no points in two games with USA's Blue team.
