Joe Colborne: The 2C Adventure

The leafs recently signed one of their prospects Joe Colborne to a one year deal. Colborne played for the Marlies mostly over the course of the last three years and coach Eakins may be familiar with him. IMO he could be a possible solution to the oilers 2c with size problem if he develops into a decent NHL player. (Of course barring an improvement this year from Gagner) Hes got the skill to play with a guy like Yaks and not hold him back and the big knock on him is his footspeed.

With that said, are there any other prospects similar to Colborne on other teams around the NHL? Players who are not too highly touted but have skill and top-6 potential as well as size.
