|Assets:||Has tremendous size and the potential to play a power game at the highest level. Can score goals and set up his linemates, too. Can line up either at center or wing.|
|Flaws:||Is extremely inconsistent in all areas of the game and still somewhat raw. Needs to utilize his size more. Must become a better player without the puck, as well as in his own end.|
|Career Potential:||Big, versatile forward with upside.|

Joe Colborne makes NHL playoff debut | 05/13/2013 1:27 PM
NewsJoe Colborne made his NHL playoff debut Sunday night in Game 6 against Boston.
ImpactThe Bruins drafted him with the 16th overall pick in the 2008 draft and traded him to Toronto as part of the Tomas Kaberle deal. He had two shots in just over 15 minutes of ice time while playing between Joffrey Lupul and Matt Frattin for most of the night. Colborne replaced Tyler Bozak in the lineup, but he may have stepped on the toes of coach Randy Carlyle when he admitted to the media that he knew he would play after Game 5. "Randy wanted to throw you guys for a bit of a loop," he said. "We kept it real quiet. I wasn't able to tell anyone outside of my parents, and I made them swear they wouldn't be letting that slip." The Leafs bench boss didn't appear to be happy when the Toronto Star told him about Colborne's comments. If Bozak can't play in Game 7 then it's possible that Colborne will play again.

NewsJoe Colborne notched three points in Toronto's 6-0 win over Hamilton on Wednesday night.
ImpactColborne had a goal and an assist to push his season totals to an underwhelming three and 13, respectively. There's a lot of upside here, but the 22-year-old forward has been MIA for much of this season after an inconsistent 2011-12 campaign. Keith Aucoin also had three points, though two of his were goals.
