Teubert, Colten - D - Regina

Colten Teubert / Regina Pats WHL
D-R / 6-3.5, 185 / 08-Mar-1990

Skating: 75 / Skill: 60 / Sense: 55 / Compete: 65 / Tough: 70

Strengths: Terrific skater. Angry, mean, and wants to hurt opponents.

Weaknesses: Will need to learn to play more positionally sound in d-zone. Not as much progress offensively as I'd hoped this season.

Competes physically. You can't teach the kind of aggressiveness he has. Very good strength despite slight build, should get even stronger. Underrated puck skill. Needs to improve defensive reads, especially in transition. Aggressive style leads to a lot of chasing in d-zone. Some have questioned his hockey sense, but I don't see a problem with it.

Summary: Big, aggressive defender who can skate = very good NHLer.

Target/Want: Forget pounding a fist on the table, I'd flip the whole table over to get this guy. I love this player. He should go about 8th overall, but will probably slip until the teens.

Hey, I'm an L.A. Kings fan stopping by to read about our new draftees.

LOVE what you wrote about Teubert!!

Do you think he can be NHL-ready by Fall, 2010?
