Colborne will be back in the Avalanche lineup on Wednesday.
Colborne was a healthy scratch on Monday, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. Edmonton. Colborne will replace Mikhail Grigorenko and skate on the fourth line. He has three goals and one assist in 17 games this season.
The Avalanche have signed Joe Colborne to a two-year deal worth $5 million ($2.5M AAV).
Colborne, 26, is coming off of his best season as a professional, having collected 19 goals and 25 assists (44 points) in 73 games with the Flames. The 6-foot-5, 221 lbs. forward brings a bunch of size as well as some offensive punch to the Avalanche, where he could land a top-6 gig.
Colborne (thumb) is expected to make his season debut on Tuesday.
Colborne missed the first five games of the season with a thumb injury that he suffered in the preseason but he will get into the lineup on Tuesday against Washington. Colborne is coming off of a strong year, where he scored eight goals with 20 assists (28 points) in 64 games. He will centre the third line with Michael Ferland and Josh Jooris on his wings.
Colborne (thumb) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Colborne has missed the first five games of the season after suffering a thumb injury in the preseason. He skated on a line with Josh Jooris and Markus Granlund in practice on Monday and is listed as a game-time decision for Tuesday.
Colborne left Thursday’s game with a hand injury and did not return.
Colborne underwent wrist surgery this offseason which put him behind the eight-ball to begin the preseason. To make matters worse he blocked an Andrew Ladd shot last night and was forced to exit the game. He is expected to be reevaluated on Friday where more details will be released.
Colborne took part in his first contact practice since injuring his wrist.
Colborne, who has been out since October 28th with a wrist injury, got rid of his no contact jersey and took part in full practice this morning. This is great news for the Flames, who could potentially have their 6-foot-5 centre back in the lineup on Thursday in Buffalo.
Colborne left Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return.
Colbrone retired to the dressing room after playing just 8:09. He is tied for eighth in the NHL with eight assists in the first 11 games of the season, but his hot-start could come to a halt if this upper-body injury is serious.
The Flames and Joe Colborne have agreed on a two-year, $2.55 million dollar deal.
Colborne, 24, had 28 points (10G / 18A) in 80 games with the Flames last season. The 6-foot-5 forward had a minus-17 rating while he averaged 14 minutes a night. He will continue to see bottom-6 minutes with a little bit of power-play time, but probably won't be enough to make him fantasy relevant.
