Although it is time for Teppo to sit and that he has struggled these last two months. I'm not "excited" about it. I love the guy, he bleeds blue and gold, he's persevered through a lot the last couple of years to come back this year, and he's done an admirable job filling in for an oft injured defense core.
Time is catching up Teppo swiftly and this will most likely be his last year. But I don't think he's done just quite yet. I'm sure we may need him again to help out this season. Hopefully time off might give him a little stamina in the tank if he is called upon to fill in in case of injuries.
