As the Reign’s special military-themed jerseys earned a total of $52,000 during a postgame charity auction, the bid on Teubert’s jersey set a team record. Not a bad omen for a 19-year-old who had just appeared in his first game at Citizens Business Bank Arena.
“Great fans. The atmosphere in the building’s awesome,” Teubert said. “I love it.”
The feeling clearly is mutual.
The next night against Las Vegas, Teubert delivered several bone-crunching hits, one of which led directly to his first professional assist in the third period of a playoff-clinching 3-1 victory.
