The Chicago Blackhawks called up two players Friday including highly-touted prospect Teuvo Teravainen.

Jeremy Morin, who leads the Blackhawks' AHL affiliate Rockford IceHogs with 24 goals, was also called up by the team.

Morin has played in 15 games with the Blackhawks this season, scoring one goal and four assists. In 30 career NHL games the 22-year-old has four goals and six assists.

Teravainen meanwhile, led Jokerit of the Finnish Elite League with 44 points (nine goals and 35 assists) in 49 games this year. Chicago's first-round draft pick in 2012, was the leading scorer in this year's World Juniors with two goals and 15 points in helping Finland win a gold medal.

The moves come as the Blackhawks placed Patrick Kane on the long-term injury list after his knee injury suffered in Wednesday's 4-0 win against the St. Louis Blues.
