Colborne Named AHL Player Of The Month

The American Hockey League announced today that Toronto Marlies forward Joe Colborne has been named the Reebok/AHL Player of the Month for October. Colborne scored eight goals, recorded eight assists and posted a plus-8 rating to help guide the Marlies to first place in the North Division standings with a record of 5-3-1-0.

Colborne, 21, began the 2011-12 season recording a point in each of his first eight games, starting with a goal on opening night in Binghamton. Colborne, who had recorded three points in a game just once as a rookie last year, hit that mark three times in October, earning first-star honours for each performance on Oct. 15 vs. Lake Erie (one goal, two assists), Oct. 22 vs. Rochester (overtime goal, two assists) and Oct. 26 vs. Abbotsford (two goals, one assist). Colborne’s 16 points leave him tied for the AHL scoring lead through the end of the month. The 6’5, 213-pound forward also ranks tied for second in the AHL in goals and third in plus/minus.
In recognition of this achievement, Colborne will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Marlies home game.

The Marlies continue their nine-game road trip tomorrow night when they travel to Austin, TX to take on the Texas Stars, AHL affiliate of the Dallas Stars, at 8:30 p.m. (EST).
