Joe Colborne

The Toronto Maple Leafs traded center Joe Colborne to the Calgary Flames, Saturday, in exchange for a fourth-round pick in next year’s NHL draft.

Colborne, 23, was drafted 16th overall in the 2008 draft by the Boston Bruins. The Maple Leafs received Colborne from the Bruins in a deal that sent Tomas Kaberle to Boston in 2011.

Colborne saw action in five NHL games last season, and in 16 career games has collected one goal and five assists.
