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 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 (upper-body) is not on the ice for Flames' practice.

Colborne was injured in last night's game so there is no surprise that he is not on the ice this morning. There is no word on whether or not he will be available for Friday's game vs. the Predators.

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.

Colborne did not skate this morning and is a game-time decision tonight because of the flu.

Colborne has skated in all 26 games since arriving in Calgary via trade from Toronto. He has averaged 13:01 TOI and has three goals and five assists with a minus-3 rating. If Colborne is unable to go, Lane MacDermid would enter the lineup in his place.

Coach Bob Hartley wouldn’t say who or what, but one player in particular is a game-time decision this evening against the Columbus Blue Jackets. “We have a few bumps, but nothing is sure yet,” he said. “There’s nothing major going on.”

Depending on that one forward’s availability (Hartley referred to him as “questionable”) — Joe Colborne could draw in for his first appearance for the Flames.

Joe Colbourne will not play in the Flames season opener vs. Washington.

Colburne was acquired by the Flames last week, but will be a healthy scratch tomorrow. With the lack of centre depth in Calgary, Colburne will get into the lineup soon enough.

Leafs trade centre Joe Colborne to Flames for a fourth-round pick.

Colborne was originally drafted in the first round (16th overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft by the Boston Bruins. Last season he scored 14 goals and added 28 assists for 42 points in 65 games for the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League in addition to playing five games with the Maple Leafs. Centre is an organizational weak link in Calgary, so the expectation is that Colborne will be in the starting line-up when the Flames open the season next Thursday.
