Oilers send Teubert, two others, to AHL

The Edmonton Oilers on Thursday sent defensemen Colten Teubert and Taylor Fedun, along with forward Chris VandeVelde to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons.

Teubert, 22, had one assist in 24 games with the Oilers last season, and 10 points in 46 games with Oklahoma City. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound blueliner was the 13th pick of the 2008 NHL Draft by the Los Angeles Kings, and was acquired by the Oilers in March 2011 as part of the deal that sent Dustin Penner to the Kings. He has five points and 100 penalty minutes in 36 AHL games this season.

Fedun, 24, sat out all last season recovering from a broken leg. In 35 AHL games this season, the 6-foot, 201-pound blueliner has two goals and seven assists.

VandeVelde, 25, has a goal and eight assists in 31 AHL games this season. The 2005 fourth-round pick played five games with the Oilers last season, scoring his first NHL goal March 25.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
