Joe Colborne Player Profile

Soft hands, and good offensively skills, absolutely lighting it up in Junior A. Has the size to play and go into the high risk zones without worry. Unfortunately some scouts have associated with his upper class upbringing with a lack of work ethic based on one game scouting observations (where he still scored 3 assists), this is not true or very fair at all. It is true that he must add more of a mean streak for his game though, like his hands, he's pretty soft when it comes down to the gritty play, which is what is hurting his draft value. He can still skate well for his size and has great hands that contribute to an amazing setup ability. He will likely go very much higher then he is listed or could go lower based on GMs who question his work ethic. Too many GMs are willing to gamble though, watch him go mid first round and don't be surprised, he is elite all things being perfect in his development. Will play in Denver next year in the NCAA, some comparisons to Wheeler, don't know if that's good or bad, so he's a long-term development project.
