The former University of Denver center and 2008 16th overall pick didn't hold back when expressing his excitement to play on the same ice as the Bruins, but his night was cut a bit short when he broke his nose and chipped his tooth on a crowded play more than halfway through the the third period (read entire article).
Joe Colborne Update
The first thing that Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli did during his postgame press conference on Wednesday was talk about Joe Colborne.

Colborne, hurt during a collision in the third period of the new B's 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders rookies, had to be helped off the ice with an obvious facial laceration.

"I just spoke with Joe, it looks like he’s got a broken nose he took some stitches," said Chiarelli with a gesture to his nose and upper lip. "I think there’s a chipped tooth.

"He was lucid, and he’s going to go to the hospital to get it checked out.

"He was good spirits actually, so I think he’ll be okay."

At that point, Chiarelli hadn't seen the replay.

"I was told that it was our own stick," said Chiarelli.

That said, New York's Justin Dibenedetto was given a 5-minute elbowing penalty and a game misconduct.

"It didn’t seem like it [was a concussion] based on what [the B's training staff] told me now and based on what I saw," said Chiarelli. "[But] my guess is he won’t be playing [tonight]."
