Joe Colborne’s dream has come true. The Bruins first-round pick, 16th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft was inked to an entry-level contract with the Bruins this morning, forgoing his final two season with the University of Denver.
“I’m extremely excited for this opportunity.” said Colborne during a conference call this evening. “It’s been a dream my whole life to play in the NHL and sign a pro contract.”
And despite being upset by RIT in the NCAA East Regionals, Colborne is ready to begin a new chapter at a new level.
