When the Toronto Maple Leafs traded defenseman Tomas Kaberle to the Boston Bruins for prospect Joe Colborne, a 2011 first round pick and a 2012 conditional pick, most Toronto fans were excited just to have a first-rounder in this year’s draft, but that’s because they didn’t know what they were getting in Colborne.

The 21-year-old Calgary native has yet to play a game with the big club, but has made a great impression on the organization while playing for the Leafs’ American League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.

Since the trade the 6-foot-5, 213-pound center has seven goals and 13 points in 17 games with the Marlies.

THN’s Ryan Dixon caught up with Colborne to see how the young center was adjusting to the move.
