Teuvo Teravainen: Female Blackhawks fans are ‘quite horny’

Teuvo Teravainen has learned a lot about Chicago Blackhawks fans since the team won the Stanley Cup earlier this month. Most notably, he has gotten very familiar with Chicago’s female fan population.

On Wednesday, the 20-year-old told reporters in his home country of Finland that female Blackhawks fans are a bit intrusive. Only, Teravainen phrased it more eloquently.

“”Female fans (in Chicago) are quite horny,” he said, per a tweet from Juha Hiitelä. “They come really close.”

Hiitelä in a later tweet attempted to clarify the nature of Teravainen's comment.

“Original question to Teuvo was about selfies and how much fans wanted to take those with him and how does it feel,” Hiitelä wrote.

Teravainen scored two goals in the Stanley Cup Final, including the game-winner in Game 1. You can understand why the ladies might want to get up close and personal with him, but — as our boy Big Cat from Barstool Sports mentioned — it seems like something may have been lost in translation there.

Blackhawks fans have done some pretty ruthless things (here’s one of them), but this is the first we’ve heard from a player about overly-horny female fans.
