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 Oklahoma City Barons are the AHL's top team with a 22-8-1-3 record. The days of the Edmonton Oilers' farm teams being bottom feeders is long gone as the club has made a point both this season and last to put a winning team on the ice, committing to older players and AHL veterans rather than rely exclusively on young prospects. This season, led by players like Ryan Keller, Josh Green, Bryan Helmer, and Yann Danis, the Barons are the team to beat.

Fans of the Edmonton Oilers have demonstrated their patience over the past number of years, buying into the mantra of a wholesale rebuild. After two seasons in the NHL’s basement however, expectations are rising and that patience is wearing thin. Fortunately for the Oilers faithful, a lot of the team’s future is on or near the NHL roster and there is still a wealth of quality talent coming down the pipe. Unlike years past, much of the current talent in the prospect pool is complementary and demonstrates a wide range of skills. With the exception of the 2011 top pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the players who succeed at the NHL level off this list will be likely be playing supporting roles to the top line talents who have already made the jump to the show.
