Oklahoma City Barons defenseman Colten Teubert on Wednesday was called up to the Edmonton Oilers. The first-round draft choice by the Los Angeles Kings (13th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft had played in all nine Barons games this season, recording four points (2-2-4) and 18 penalty minutes. Just before being recalled by the Oilers, Teubert took a break for a few questions and answers with The Oklahoman.
Q: How was your Halloween?
A: (Laughs). We all went to the bowling alley and had a few pops. Everybody dressed up, and it was a pretty good time and a good team event. I was supposed to be Lloyd from Dumb & Dumber. But my costume never arrived so I had to, at the last minute, be Mr. Fantastic from the Fantastic Four. Me and my roommate were going to be Harry and Lloyd, but the blue and the orange tuxes never came. It was kind of disappointing but we still had fun.
What do you try do to take your mind away from the game and relax?
We definitely play a lot of video games, that's for sure. Me and my roommate, I have a Playstation 3 and he has an X-box. We play Call of Duty or NHL. I recently got a puppy, too, so I'm taking care of her. That keeps me busy, too.
What's your dream date?
I don't know. I'd say a country star. I like country stars. I'm on the prowl. Taylor Swift's pretty cute. But I like the girl from the band Perry. She's a blond chick. She's cute.
