Article on Colborne, which makes a case for him as a top six C by next year.

When looking at Colborne scoring pace now, itís obvious the wrist issues were what caused the sudden disappearance of Colborne, but also his sudden re-emergence Due to the small sample size of a healthy Colborne itís hard to judge exactly the type of player Colborne is. If when healthy, he truely is a point per game AHL centre, who is still learning to use his size and only a couple months over 23 years of age, then their is a lot of reason for Leaf fans to have optimism about Colbornes future in Toronto. Over the past season many high end AHL prospects have made the jump to the NHL, and in general the jump seems to be made when a prospect has been able to put up a point per game in the minorís. When comparing Colborne to other young forwards (all born in í89 or later) who made the jump from the AHL to the NHL this season, Colborne does not look out of place.
