Teubert made his debut for the Pats in the 2005–06 season, playing 14 regular season games, where he picked up 2 assists and another 6 games in the playoffs. In 2006–07, his rookie season with the Pats, he led the team in rookie defenseman scoring.[2] During the 2007-08 season, Teubert played in the CHL Top Prospects Game along with teammate Jordan Eberle. Teubert finished the season eighth in team scoring and fourth among defensemen.[2] After the 2007–08 season, Teubert was drafted in the first round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft 13th overall by the Los Angeles Kings.[3]

During the 2008–09 season, Teubert served as an assistant captain for the Pats, and he also suited up for the WHL in the CHL Canada-Russia Challenge (Subway Super Series). He repeated both of these feats during the 2009–10 season.[2] During the 2009 Subway Super Series, Teubert served as team captain for the WHL team for one game.[4] On January 12, 2010, Teubert was named captain of the Pats.[5] At the end of the 2009–10 season, Teubert was named the Regina Pats best defenseman.[6]

Teubert attended training camp with the Los Angeles Kings prior to the 2008–09 and 2009–10 seasons, and was returned to the Pats each year. After the Pats' 2008–09 season was complete, Teubert made his professional debut when the Kings assigned him to the Ontario Reign of the ECHL on March 20, 2009. In September 2009, the Kings returned him to the Regina Pats. After the conclusion of the 2009–10 WHL season, Teubert was again assigned to the Reign for the conclusion of the 2009–10 ECHL season.[7]

On February 28, 2011, Teubert was traded to the Edmonton Oilers along with Los Angeles's 2011 1st round draft pick and 2012 2nd round draft pick in a deadline day trade for Dustin Penner.[8] Coincidentally, on November 3, 2011, Teubert played his first NHL game against the Kings.[9] He played 24 games for the Oilers and 46 for AHL's Oklahoma City Barons that season.

In 2013, he decided to continue his career abroad, accepting an offer from the Iserlohn Roosters of the German Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).[11] In February 2014, he inked a fresh two-year deal with the Roosters.[12] When his contract was up following the 2015–16 season, he agreed to terms with DEL team Nürnberg Ice Tigers on a three-year deal.[13]
