Colten Teubert – born in White Rock, British Columbia on March 8th, 1990 and like so many born on the West Coast of Canada, hockey was his passion.

Teubert grew up on the Lower Mainland honing his hockey skills before being recognized by the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League as one of the brighter prospects in the minor hockey ranks.

The Pats drafted Teubert first overall in the 2005 WHL Bantam draft and hoped the defensive skills that he was known for would translate to the intense competition of the WHL.

It wouldn’t be long before Teubert would make the jump from Bantam to the WHL – in the 2005-2006 season he would play 14 games but only record two assists.

The 2006-2007 season would act as Teubert’s rookie season for the Regina Pats in a year that he led the team in rookie defenseman scoring.

In 2007-2008, Teubert continued to carve out his stay-at-home defenseman reputation and was recognized with a trip to CHL Top Prospects Game.

The summer of 2008 would serve as the next step in Teubert’s playing career. He was drafted in the 1st round of the NHL draft (13th overall) by the Los Angeles Kings. He was sent back to the Regina Pats for the 2008-2009 season where he would act as Assistant Captain.

Teubert would eventually be named Captain of the Pats on January 12th 2010. How much of an impact did Teubert have on Regina?

The Regina mayor proclaimed January 8, 2010 as “Jordan Eberle and Colten Teubert Day” in the city!

During his Junior Career, Teubert suited up for Team Canada in a number of tournaments. He played for Canada at two Under-18 tournaments – the Ivan Hlinka Memorial (fourth place finish) and the 2008 World Under-18 Championships (gold medal).

Teubert also went on to play for Canada at the World Junior Championships in 2009 and 2010. In 2009, he helped Canada win a gold medal, while in 2010 the team took home silver. Teubert served as one of the team’s alternate captains during the 2010 tournament.

It took a while for Teubert’s professional career to kick off.

He was in the Los Angeles Kings’ training camp in the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 seasons only to get sent back to the minors to strengthen up his skills.

Teubert would actually make his Pro debut with the Ontario Reign of the ECHL on March 20th, 2009 where he would play at the conclusion of the Regina Pats’ 2009-2010 season.

Teubert was part of a Trade-Deadline Day deal in the NHL in February of 2011. He, Los Angeles’s 2012 1st Round and 2nd Round Draft Choices were sent to the Edmonton Oilers for Dustin Penner.

On November 3rd, Teubert would make his NHL debut for the Oilers against who?

You guessed it – the Los Angeles Kings.
