I distinctly recall Bob McKenzie alluding to Carolina being prepared to take Teubert at #14 (they took Zach Boychuk instead). Wasn't super thrilled with the Teubert pick at the time, but thought he fit in a specific spot with Doughty/Johnson/Hickey on board. With previous drafts, stay at home D tend to be the guys that get overslotted in hindsight.
Teubert was more or less ranked around that area all year. He helped lead Canada to Gold at the U-18s and led the club with a +8. It's not unusual for a player's stock to rise as the tourney is the last on ice impression that some players get to make. From the U-18, Jake Allen vaulted himself from a relative unknown to a high 2nd rounder.
