Center Joe Colborne avoided arbitration by signing a two-year contract with the Calgary Flames. Financial terms were not announced, but the deal is worth $2.55 million according to Sportsnet.
Acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in September, the 24-year-old Calgary-area native scored 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games in his first full NHL season in 2013-14. Before that, he had just one goal and six points in 16 games over parts of three seasons with Toronto.
Colborne is 6-feet-5 and 220 pounds, and has an opportunity to continue to develop on the right wing for the Flames, who are thin at the spot.
Colborne was originally the 16th overall pick in 2008 by the Boston Bruins, who traded him to Toronto in 2011 as part of a deal for defenseman Tomas Kaberle.
