Colborne picked up two minor penalties Friday in an eventual 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes, getting whistled for high-sticking and slashing. After registering 44 points in 73 games with Calgary last season, Colborne's been a colossal bust in his move to the Central Division. His time spent in the sin bin Friday could signal frustration from a campaign that's included a mere five points with a minus-17 rating over 46 contests, and he's fortunate that he didn't hurt his team with the penalties. Yeah, maybe the four PIM salvaged his fantasy night to some degree, but even that looks like an aberration as he's only spent 24 minutes in the box all year. If you've been hanging onto Colborne in hopes that he'll get it together, it's time to reconsider that train of thought.
Colborne (illness) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Jets, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. Colborne will slot into his usual bottom-six role Saturday, skating with Carl Soderberg and Andreas Martinsen on Colorado's fourth line. The 27-year-old forward has failed to tally a single point in his last 34 games, and isn't a practical option in season-long fantasy formats.
Colborne (illness) missed Friday's practice, and is questionable for Saturday's game against Winnipeg, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. The center hasn't been playing well this year, with four points in 38 games, and only averaging 11:33 per game. If he misses the game, his chance to return will come Tuesday against Montreal.
Colborne has just four points in 32 games this year. The 26-year-old is having a horrible time this season, as he hasn't recorded a point in a whopping 28 games. It's been a down year for pretty much everyone in Denver -- which certainly hasn't helped get Colborne back on track -- and as such, he's not going to come anywhere close to the career-high 44 points he put up last season with Calgary.
Colborne (lower body) returned to Colorado's lineup for Tuesday's game against Minnesota. The veteran pivot didn't do much in his return to action, registering one hit and 10:33 of ice time in Tuesday's contest. Colborne's lack of offensive upside and bottom-six role with the Avalanche keep him off the fantasy radar in the majority of formats.
