Colborne, Joe - C - Camrose

Joe Colborne / Camrose Kodiaks AJHL
C-L / 6-5, 190 / 30-Jan-1990

Skating: 55 / Skill: 60 / Sense: 55 / Compete: 25 / Tough: 20

Strengths: Big frame, long reach. Good shooting touch. Tough to knock off the puck.

Weaknesses: No intensity. Does not compete physically.

A Rorschach player for scouts. Wildly divergent opinion on this player among NHL guys. Some only see the size and scoring touch and think next great power forward. I tend to see the incredibly soft play and think the next Scott Kelman. Obviously the size and hands are tempting, but this guy is a gentle giant who will go out of his way not to hit an opponent.

Summary: Going to have get some fire in his belly if he is to survive the nightly NHL wars.

Target/Want: Sounds like he's going between 10-20 overall. I'd only go for him after about the 35th pick.
