Colten Teubert has been sent back to Edmonton as a precaution after taking a fist to the beak last night against the Canucks. Teubert was the captain of the Oiler rookies at the tournament and he was likely to play only one or two games at the event.
Teubert was likely ticketed for the OKC Barons no matter what happened this September, but any time off will seal that fate.
During the RE series, I suggested injury as being the key to his NHL chances this year:
- What has to happen in order for him to break TC with the team? Injury. I don’t see any other way and it’s probably two injuries.
Teubert’s health for the beginning of TC is the big item here, and that’s the reason the club decided to shut him down for the week.
