Teubert Named WHL Captain
eriesCalgary, AB. – The Western Hockey League in association with the Canadian Hockey League and SUBWAY® today announced the players that will serve as Captains and Assistant Captains for Team WHL in the 2009 SUBWAY® Super Series games to be played in Victoria, BC on Wednesday November 25 and in Kelowna on Thursday November 26, 2009.
Regina Pats defenceman Colten Teubert has been named Team WHL captain for game five of the SUBWAY® Super Series in Victoria, BC.
The 19-year-old from White Rock, BC, is playing his fourth year with the Regina Pats and was a member of Team Canada last season when they captured Gold at the 2009 World Junior Championships.
Teubert, who was selected in the 1st round – 13th overall by the Los Angeles Kings at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, is representing Team WHL for the second straight season. Jared Cowen (Spokane Chiefs), Jordan Eberle (Regina Pats) and Brayden Schenn (Brandon Wheat Kings) have been named as the assistant captains for Team WHL for the game in Victoria, BC. All three participated in last season's Super Series with Team WHL.
Kelowna Rockets forward Brandon McMillan has been named Team WHL captain for game six of the SUBWAY® Super Series in Kelowna, BC. The 19-year-old from Delta, BC is playing his fourth season with the defending WHL Champion Kelowna Rockets.
Craig Cunningham (Vancouver Giants), Wacey Hamilton (Medicine Hat Tigers) and Travis Hamonic (Moose Jaw Warriors) have been named as assistant captains for Team WHL for the game in Kelowna, BC.
It makes me wonder as to why the Pats haven't named a captain yet. Teubert has been recognized as captain for team WHL yet he isn't the captain of the Pats. It makes me wonder if something is up with Teubert/Eberle.
Anyway, congrats to Teubert! Make the Pats' fan's proud!
