It was announced Wednesday afternoon that the Toronto Maple Leafs have re-signed forward Joe Colborne to a one-year contract extension,
Colborne, 23, played in five regular season games for the Maple Leafs this past season, including two NHL playoff games.
The 6-5, 213-pound centre played in 65 games for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League, where he scored 14 goals, tallied in 28 assists for 42 points.
Colborne came in at a pretty cheap cap hit of $600,000, which is good because the Leafs still have room for their other RFA’s.
The remaining RFA’s include Nazem Kadri, Cody Franson, Mark Fraser, and Carl Gunnarsson.
The Leafs currently have $9,720,833 million in cap space to work with, according to capgeek.com
