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.

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.

The Calgary Flames have placed Joe Colborne (wrist) on the injured reserve list.

Colborne was injured on Tuesday and with the call up of Sven Baertschi, the Flames needed the space to place Baertschi on the 23 man roster. Colborne has eight assists this season and is headed for his best offensive season of his career, if he can stay healthy.

Joe Colborne had to leave Tuesday's game versus Montreal after taking a puck to the head in the first period.

The Flames are calling it an upper-body injury but it was evident that he was affected by the shot to the head he took in the first period. He took just three shifts in the second period wasn't on the bench for the second period. We will update you as we know more.

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.
