Joe Colborne (born January 30, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the first round, 16th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing careerEdit

Colborne was drafted after two seasons with the Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL). At the end of the 2007-08 season, he was named the 2008 RBC Canadian Junior A Hockey League Player of the Year. A highly touted prospect, Colborne played in the second-tier junior league in order to maintain his eligibility for the NCAA. As a result, he was the highest drafted Junior A player in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and became the first AJHL player to be drafted in the first round since Brent Sutter in 1980.[1]

In 2008-09, Colborne entered his freshman year for the University of Denver Pioneers in the NCAA. Named one of the team's Most Valuable Freshman and co-recipient of the Barry Sharp Memorial Award for Denver's Top Freshman.[2]

After the Pioneers' elimination from the 2010 NCAA tournament, Colborne signed an entry level contract with the Boston Bruins. He made his debut with the team's AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins, on April 2, 2010, tallying 2 assists.

On February 18, 2011 he was traded from the Boston Bruins along with a first round pick in the 2011 draft and a second round pick in the 2012 draft to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Tomas Kaberle. He made his NHL debut with Toronto on April 9, 2011 in a 4-1 loss against the Montreal Canadiens,[3] registering an assist for his first NHL point.
