Real interesting story out of Canada… Apparently, Kings prospect Colten Teubert is taking some heat from the fans of the Regina Pats, his WHL junior team, and it’s not sitting well with him. It appears that a segment of fans believe Teubert’s game hasn’t been strong since he returned from the World Juniors.
“When a fat guy eating popcorn wants to boo me, it really doesn’t matter,” Teubert told the Regina Leader-Post.
Teubert went on to say, in response to those who are accusing him of not playing hard, “If I could, I’d give out my cellphone (number) to every person who thinks that. They can give me a call and I’ll have coffee with them … If anybody is judging my character, saying I want to lose, that’s a really disrespectful comment. That’s not who I am. That’s not how I was brought up. I cry every time we lose. It’s really disheartening that fans would go that low but, if they want to point fingers, there are three pointing back at you. Our fans tend to boo more than they cheer these days. On a positive note, maybe we could get some cheers that are for us instead of against us.”
Here’s the whole story…
