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.

Joe Colborne is tied for second place in the NHL with eight assists.

He was tied for the lead heading into action on Friday when Ryan Getzlaf of the Ducks picked up his ninth helper of the season. Colborne has been a pleasant surprise for the Flames offensively with this outburst. This is his third NHL team as he was drafted by the Bruins in the first round of the 2008 Draft and then dealt to the Maple Leafs who traded him to his hometown of Calgary before the start of last season. He could hit the 50 point mark this season so he may be worthy of a waiver wire pickup in your pool.

Joe Colborne is off to a fast start with four assists in his first two games.

Colborne was dealt from Toronto to Calgary just before the start of last season and Calgary President Brian Burke, who was his GM in Toronto, compared him to David Steckel, a hard working fourth liner. But by the end of the season, Burke said he had a chance to be like David Backes or Jordan Staal and that is not too shabby. "In our final meeting, he mentioned a few guys like David Backes and Jordan Staal," says Colborne, who’d collected 28 points, including 10 goals. "They (are on) power play, penalty kill. They shut down guys. They’re good on faceoffs. That’s the type of guy I want to emulate." While we do not expect a 60 point season from the big center, 40-45 points look to be within his reach.

Joe Colborne went into Calgary's training camp stronger and "with a completely different mindset."

"Just the change in my confidence level is huge," Colborne said. "Being able to go out there and assert myself. Coming back heavier and stronger with a better lower body base than I've ever had before." He established himself in the NHL last season with 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games. That was enough to convince the Flames to give him a two-year, $2.55 million contract in July.

Joe Colborne has inked a two-year, $2.55 million contract extension.

Colborne was a restricted free agent and had an arbitration hearing scheduled for August 1. He had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games with Calgary in 2013-14.
Jul 22 - 1:04 PM

Joe Colborne wants to avoid his arbitration hearing on August 1 if possible.

The hearing would be moot if the Flames and Colborne agree to terms before it starts. The arbitration process can be tough on a player as he has to sit there and listen to all the reasons the team feels like he's not worth as much as he claims. "I've seen a few guys go through the whole situation," Colborne said. "I've heard when you go in there and your agents are talking, you feel like the biggest human alive. You feel like you're a superhero. And then the team comes in and you don't feel quite so big after all, and you come out of like you've been through the ringer."

Jul 5 - 5:34 PM

Joe Colborne will play against his former Toronto Maple Leafs at a time when the team has hit a low point.

Toronto has lost eight games in a row in regulation time and the Calgary Flames will attempt to make it nine. On Colborne's end, he admitted that Tuesday's contest will be emotional for him. "Obviously, it’s where I played my first game, my first playoff game — that was one of the coolest moments of my life," Colborne said. "It's going to be a fun game. We're going to be battling hard. We know how much these two points mean to them." Realistically, Toronto has already been eliminated from the playoffs, but if they win all six of their remaining games, there's at least a chance that they will end up with a Wild Card spot. If Calgary beats Toronto Tuesday night, that faint hope will be gone.
