Teubert makes Team Canada’s final cut.

Based on the reputation that has followed him as a junior player in Canada, Wednesday’s announcement was a mere formality: Former Reign defenseman Colten Teubert will play for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships.

Teubert played in 14 games last season for the Reign, including both the regular season and the playoffs, collecting two assists and 19 penalty minutes. In 31 games for the Regina Pats this season, he has six goals, 24 assists and 55 penalty minutes.

The World Junior Championships will be held Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Regina, and Team Canada is seeking its sixth consecutive gold medal.
