Colten Teubert is regarded as one of the most physical defencemen in the WHL and that's ne of the reasons Hockey Canada had him on their WJC last year and why he'll be in Saskatoon/Regina in 2010. Unfortunately for Jordan Caron (BOS), he found out the hard way just how hard the Regina Pats defender can hit; he's now out for 6-8 weeks with a broken collar bone.
The Rimouski Oceanic forward was injured during Saturday's Red/White game during Canada's U20 camp in Saskatoon. Caron had just received a breakout pass and was crossing over his own blueline when he was rocked by the 6'3, 190 lb Teubert in an very aggressive but clean hit.
"It's unfortunate but it's part of the game right?" Teubert told the media after the game, "I'm just doing my job and that's what I do so... it sucks for him but hopefully he has a quick recovery."
Caron was taken to hospital after the hit and on Sunday the severity of the injury was revealed. Teubert (LA), was not penalized on the play.
Team White (Teubert's side) won the game 5-2 with both Jordan Eberle (EDM) and Ryan O'Reilly (COL) picking up a goal and an assist.
Highlights of the game and that hit are available HERE.
There is another Red/White game tonight.
