Colborne named recipient of inaugural Good Guy Award
Joe Colborne is the recipient of the inaugural Calgary Flames Good Guy Award, as determined Friday by local traveling media members.

CALGARY, AB -- Joe Colborne is the recipient of the inaugural Calgary Flames Good Guy Award, as determined Friday by local traveling media members.

In the face of ever-increasing numbers of reporters and cameras, we felt it was time to acknowledge players who maintain patience and a good-natured attitude through what can be a trying process -- often daily, sometimes twice-daily.

As voted on by the nine reporters -- who each selected three players, ordered one through three -- Colborne, a Calgary native, edged Mikael Backlund for the recognition. In all, seven different players received votes.

A donation in Colborne’s name will be made to the Flames Foundation for Life.

Colborne, 24, is in his first year with the Flames -- and in his first full year in the National Hockey League. He has recorded 10 goals and 27 points in 78 games.
