2012 NHL Draft Grades: Chicago Blackhawks Given Solid Grade By SB Nation

It was a pretty good first day of the draft for the Chicago Blackhawks when Teuvo Teravainen fell a bit farther than most analysts expected. Chicago swiped the young Finnish winger up quickly and SB Nation's NHL Draft Grades, released right after the end of the draft, gave them high marks for the selection.

Chicago Blackhawks: With the addition of Teuvo Teravainen, Chicago gains another skilled winger in the mold of a Patrick Kane, but his speed and hands should hopefully overcome the concerns about his size that led to the Finnish forward falling in the draft. B+

Having a guy in the mold of Patrick Kane, no matter how small the 5'11'' winger might be, is never a bad thing and is a comparison that Blackhawks fans will be smiling at. Small players aren't always effective in the NHL, but there are plenty of examples including Buffalo's Nathan Gerbe that show size doesn't always matter.

Obviously it wasn't enough of a problem to keep the Hawks from getting a solid B+ out of the grades.
