Joe Colborne was playing through a wrist injury for most of the 2014-15 campaign.

Colborne will see a specialist about it now that the season is over. We'll have to wait to see if he'll need surgery and what his timetable is, but it would be somewhat surprising if it turns out that this is a serious enough problem to keep him out for the start of the 2015-16 campaign.

Joe Colborne is very happy with the way he's played lately.

"This type of hockey fits well with the way I like to play," Colborne said. "I'm having the time of my life right now. I'm not really thinking about taking that next step. I'm just focusing on playing my best hockey each game and each period. And this line we have going is clicking pretty good." His linemates have been Mikael Backlund and Sam Bennett. Colborne isn't known for his offensive contributions, but he did chip in two assists in the Flames' first round series against Vancouver.

Joe Colborne posted a pair of assists to help the Flames defeat the slumping Winnipeg Jets 4-2 in Calgary Monday night.

Colborne assisted on third-period goals by Raphael Diaz and Brandon Bollig. They were the first goals of the season for both Diaz and Bollig. Colborne's assist total increased to 14. Other scorers for Calgary were David Jones (eighth), Mason Raymond (seventh) and Sean Monahan (17th). Monahan's goal was an empty-netter. The Flames were down 1-0 after only 69 seconds in this one but jumped ahead 4-1 before giving up a goal to the Jets in the third period. The Flames pulled within one point of Winnipeg for the first of two wild-card spots in the Western Conference and improved to 12-0-0 when taking a lead into the third period.

Joe Colborne scored once and added an assist in the Flames 4-3 win over San Jose Saturday.

Colborne's fourth goal of the season was a shorthanded effort and he now has 15 points in 27 games as he is establishing himself as a bona fide NHLer. Colborne also won four of five face off draws Saturday. It's tough to recommend a player who averages barely a point every two games as those type players are a dime a dozen in the NHL but in the real game, Colborne has made huge strides in 2014-15.

Joe Colborne is just 24, but he's already turning into a great leader.

Colborne took Drew Shore under his wings when the Flames recently called him up. "This morning I sat with him," Flames coach Bob Hartley said, "and almost everything I was telling him, he said 'Colby told me.' I guess Colby has a second career already in the making." Of course, it's naturally that Colborne would seek to help out Shore given that the two go back several years to their days at the University of Denver Pioneers. Given how familiar they are with each other, Hartley has put them on a line with Lance Bouma.

Joe Colborne has three goals in his last three games.

That's after he was getting chirped by his family and friends over the holidays over his inability to find the back of the net through 18 games. "When you're getting chances, sooner or later, they're going to go in," Colborne said. "You just keep telling yourself that. I just kept saying, 'They have to start going in.' I've scored at every level I've played at, so you know they’re going to start going in." He's not likely to have much fantasy value in standard leagues going forward, but he's still worth checking in on periodically.

Joe Colborne scored a power play and an even strength goal to help pace the Flames past the Oilers on New Year's Eve.

Colborne got the Flames on the board as the Oilers' jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this contest. Colborne was all over the place in registering three shots, six hits and two pims in nearly 20 minutes of ice-time. The 24 year-old has three goals in as many games but that's all the goal scoring he has done this year in 21 games. Josh Jooris and Lance Bouma tallied the other goals and Sean Monahan picked up two assists in the win.
Jan 1 - 12:59 AM

Joe Colborne has been activated from injured reserve by the Calgary Flames.

He skated with Sean Monahan and Paul Byron in the morning and is likely to play against Buffalo. It will be his first appearance in the lineup since Oct. 28. Colborne has eight assists in 11 games this year.

Joe Colborne (wrist) was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice.

Colborne could be back in the lineup on Thursday. It's hard to say how that would impact the lines if he is though. He skated alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Josh Jooris during Wednesday's practice, but he was likely only filling in for Jiri Hudler, who was taking a day off. So Colborne will probably end up with different linemates, but who they will be remains to be seen.
