Hurricanes acquire Teravainen, Bickell from Chicago

The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired forwards Teuvo Teravainen and Bryan Bickell from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a 2016 second-round draft pick and a 2017 third-round draft pick.

The second-round pick, 50th overall, originally belonged to the New York Rangers, while the 2017 third-round pick was originally acquired from Chicago on Sept. 11, 2015 in a deal that brought Kris Versteeg and Joakim Nordstrom to Carolina.

"This deal allowed us to use some of our collected draft picks to improve our group of forwards for the coming season by added two Stanley Cup champions," said Hurricanes GM Ron Francis. "Teuvo is a young, highly-skilled player still on his entry-level contract who is coming off of a strong first full NHL season, and Bryan is a veteran who has experienced great success in his career. Both players give our organization more options and flexibility among the forward ranks."

Teravainen, 21, scored 13 goals and added 22 assists for 35 points in 78 games with the Blackhawks in his first full NHL season.

The Helsinki native won the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2015, and was drafted 18th overall by Chicago in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Bickell, 30, split the 2015-16 season between Chicago and Rockford of the AHL, earning two assists in 25 games with the Blackhawks, and registering 15 goals and 16 assists for 31 points in 47 games with the IceHogs.

The Bowmanville, Ontario, native was a member Chicago's Stanley Cup-winning teams in 2010, 2013 and 2015, and he has scored 20 goals and earned 19 assists in 75 career NHL playoff games.

Bickell was drafted by Chicago in the second round, 41st overall, in the 2004 NHL Draft, and has acumulated 65 goals and 70 assists in 384 NHL career regular-season games with the Blackhawks.
