Flames lose Colborne to thumb injury

1 Comment

Calgary forward Joe Colborne, who notched a career-high in assists last year, suffered a thumb injury in Thursday’s game against Winnipeg and is out week-to-week, per head coach Bob Hartley.

Colborne, 25, was a regular fixture in the Calgary lineup last year, though he did miss time with a wrist injury (unrelated to his current issue).

Colborne finished with two points in 11 games which included this nice breakaway goal against Anaheim in Round 2:

As for how long he’ll be out?
