While I do believe that Teubert can be a bit of a meat head at times, him playing in the ECHL right now isn't too concerning. He's still 20 and again, the Kings seem to be confident in the current group of defensemen in Manchester. Bagnall being the team captain will more than likely remain in the lineup over a rookie.
Now if he was assigned to Ontario after training camp in October, I would be concerned. He has ways to go. I think he needs to spend another 2 years in the AHL. By that time, he'll be 22 and could challenge for a bottom six role.
