Joe Colborne put an end to his infamous 41-game goal drought on Sunday with Colorado's only marker in a 5-1 loss against the Islanders.
Colborne netted a hat trick in the first game of the year, and four months later he finally has his fourth goal of the season. It's his first point since Oct. 20, a span of 39 games. At this rate, Colborne should score his next goal during the 2017-18 season, but we hope this could spur a turnaround. Feb 12 - 10:37 PM

Joe Colborne is off to a nice start with his new team.

Colborne, who played college hockey at the University of Denver, signed with the Avs this summer and he's been a great fit so far. The 26-year-old has three goals and one assist in four games and has felt at home since the start of the season. "The boys have all kind of accepted us, and there’s a certain level of comfort in Denver — little things you’re worried about going to a new city," Colborne said. "We don’t have to deal with that. In a way, we’re home. More than anything, the guys have accepted us and we feel like we’ve been part of this team for a long time. Yeah, it’s working out."

Joe Colborne scored his first career hat trick in his Avalanche debut, helping Colorado win a track meet against the Dallas Stars by a score of 6-5.

Two of Colborne's three goals came on the power play. Many believed that the Avalanche made a savvy move by signing the former first-rounder (16th in 2008), but games like these will help him stick with stellar linemates. He set a career-high for goals (19) and points (44) in 73 games with Calgary in 2015-16.

Joe Colborne is slated to play on one of Colorado's top-two lines in 2016-17.

"They've mentioned they want me to play with some of their skill guys and bring a size and a net presence and puck control," Colborne said. "That's what I was given the opportunity down the stretch at Calgary and I had some really good results. Hopefully I can pick up where I left off." He finished the year with nine goals and 20 points in his last 20 games with the Flames.

After spending two years at the University of Denver back in 2008-09 and 2009-10, Joe Colborne is excited to be back.

"It’s not that surprising when you think about, when you see how many guys go to Denver and end up staying, or coming back. It’s one of my favorite spots and I obviously have been throughout North America pretty heavily," Colborne said. "You certainly don’t have to sell me on the city. I know how great Denver is as a city. The big thing for me was where I would fit in with the team. Just talking to Joe (Sakic) and hearing his passion and where he saw my role on the team is what really sold me on it." Colborne signed with the Avalanche as an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. He had 19 goals and 44 points in 73 games with the Flames last season.
