History

2005-06: Colten Teubert made a cameo appearance with the Pats in 2005-06.  In 14 games, Teubert tallied two assists and 16 PIM.  He was a member of the Pats post-season roster as well.  Playing in six games, Teubert had one assist and four PIM.  

2006-07: Teubert continued to develop as a top tier defensive defenseman with the Pats.  In 63 games, Teubert tallied 11 points (three goals, eight assists) to go along with 91 PIM.  Teubert also played in the post-season, recording one assist and 13 PIM in 10 games.  

2007-08: Teubert was named to the Canadian squad at the 2007 Canada-Russia Super Series.  Teubert also improved his offensive game heading into the 2007-08 season and produced 23 points for Regina of the WHL, but will never be known as a scorer.

2008-09: After being cut in training camp, Teubert went back to Regina of the WHL with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. A chip too big, perhaps, as squabbling and undisciplined play led to his demotion by midseason. After working his way back into the line-up, Teubert finished the season strong, setting career highs in goals and points, before being assigned to Ontario of the ECHL to get his first taste of professional hockey.

2009-10: In his final season with the Regina Pats, Tuebert posted 10 goals, 30 assists, and 115 PIM in 60 games. He was also a reliable defender for Team Canada at the WJCs. After he compeleted his season in the WHL, Teubert joined the Ontario Reign of the ECHL, where in 10 games, he posted 1 goal and 2 assists.

2010-11: Teubert's first pro season was spent in the AHL skating for the Manchester Monarchs and Oklahoma City Barons. After missing most of the Kings' training camp and some early season action while recovering from a broken hand he skated 39 games with the Monarchs before being obtained by Edmonton from Los Angeles along with two draft picks in exchange for forward Dustin Penner in a February 2011 trade. Teubert played 20 games for Oklahoma City and in 59 AHL games between the Monarchs and Barons he scored 4 goals with 13 assists and was +6 with 83 PMs. Teubert played in just two of six playoff games for the Barons due to injury and was scoreless with an even plus/minus.

2011-12: Teubert made his NHL debut with the Oilers in November after opening the season with AHL Oklahoma City and skated in 24 games for Edmonton during three separate call-ups. He had 1 assist and was minus-five with 25 penalty minutes; averaging 12:38 minutes of ice time. He was one of the top defensemen  while providing a physical edge for the Barons; scoring  2 goals with 8 assists and finishing plus-seven with 60 penalty minutes in 46 games. The Barons finished first in the West and reached the playoff semifinals. Teubert was an even plus/minus with no points and 2 penalty minutes in four playoff games.

 

Talent Analysis

Teubert is not much of a threat on offense.  The 6’4 blue liner is a big, strong, stay at home defenseman.  He plays a shutdown defensive game.  Continued focus on building foot speed and quickness will complement his physical stature. Size, grittiness and toughness are obvious attributes.  A fierce competitor that thrives on going up against the opposition's best.

 

 

Future

Teubert will play his third season at the AHL level in Oklahoma City and needs to improve his overall game in order to make the jump to the NHL. He has the toughness and physicality but unless his defensive skills improve, there's little chance he's more than a role player at best in Edmonton.

The Edmonton Oilers Spring Top 20 saw very little movement in the top 10 ranks while the bottom 10 prospects were shuffled more drastically. The top 10 features a number of highly skilled prospects who are either currently filling regular spots on the Oilers' roster such as Nail Yakupov and Justin Schultz or are looking slated to do so in the future.

The 2012-13 season has been a roller coaster ride for the Edmonton Oilers’ minor league affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons. The lockout at the beginning of the season brought them a host of talent with the likes of Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, to name a few. However, once the lockout ended, the Oilers quickly found themselves in injury trouble and the AHL’s Oklahoma City Barons were not only without the benefit of some added offense, but missing some of their key centermen as well. Despite this, the Barons have managed to soldier on and are currently vying for a playoff spot in the Western Conference of the AHL.

As a team that has taken the number one draft selection in the league for the past three years, the Edmonton Oilers are in a unique position. Their last three number one picks have been an almost sure-bet to enter straight onto the Oilers roster at the beginning of the next season and were expected to make a big splash for a team that desperately needed some new blood, starting with Taylor Hall in 2010-11, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in 2011-12, and Nail Yakupov in 2012-13. This leaves the potential for the remaining draft pool to be a bit sparse, but the Oilers have managed to maintain some depth in their pipeline.

In 2008, the Los Angeles Kings were in the midst of a taxing rebuild process. With the fourth overall pick in 2007 along with the second and 12th picks in 2008, the team was looking to add key pieces around which the team could be built moving forward.

The expectations have been building for the Edmonton Oilers, and the time has come to deliver. After half a decade at or near the bottom of the NHL standings, the club now has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to young talent. This is true not only of graduated, full-time NHL players but also of the team’s prospects.
