Teubert at Kings Camp

Video from the LA Kings website

A note from a story in the LA Times,0,4503483.column

The situation is different for defensemen Thomas Hickey and Colten Teubert, who turned pro late last season. Hickey was a controversial No. 4 pick in 2007 and Teubert was 13th in 2008.

"They'll have a chance. They'll get a very good look," Murray said. "They'll probably end up playing all six exhibition games. . . . Both are now ready. They've finished their time in junior and it's time to step up and see where they're at."

Alan Caldwell weighs in on this article on his blog (Small Thoughts at Large).....

Speaking of camps, I was reading this article about the L.A. Kings summer prospect camp and I noticed at the bottom that Kings GM Dean Lombardi made a reference to the Pats' Colten Teubert getting a long look for the team this year because he is ready and has finished his time in junior. When I read that, my first thought was that Lombardi is mistaken, because Teubert is a 1990 and thus has one more year of junior eligibility left. He's still in that play-in-the-NHL-or-go-back-to-junior group.

But then I thought about it some more, and I remembered that Teubert played a whole bunch of games for the Pats when he was 15. Fourteen regular season and six playoff games, to be exact. And there is an exception to that NHL-or-juniors rule: if a player has played four seasons of junior, he can be sent to the AHL even if he has junior eligibility remaining. This almost never happens because it requires the player to have played major junior at 15, which does not happen. Not full-time, anyway. John Tavares in the OHL would be a notable case there - he played a whole year in the OHL at 15 (via special exemption) and thus he has completed four years in the OHL and so the New York Islanders can send him to the AHL this year if they like. They won't, but they can. So, do Lombardi's comments mean that the Kings are going to try to claim that Teubert's 20 games with the Pats as a 15 year old in 2005-06 constitute a season? If they are successful with that argument, then they can put Teubert in the AHL. Or did Lombardi just err when he said Teubert's time in junior was over? If you're a Pats fan, you might have to sweat it out for a couple months to find out.
That could be bad news for Pats fans.... Losing Teubert AND Eberle would be crippling.... Yikes.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
