Over the last five years Joe Colborne has scored 130 goals. If you did that over a week your arms would get tired.
He has scored all kinds of goals with all kinds of people. He has scored in the Alberta Junior ...

It began, as these stories always do, in a small Bavarian town known by a name I will not attempt to spell. A decade ago, Korbinian Holzer faced Marcel Mueller for the first time.
As 14-year-olds the two future Marlies met and pretty well instantly became estranged at a tournament in their native Germany. “He was the biggest defenceman and I was among the biggest forwards so we saw a lot of each other,” Mueller said Tuesday.
For lack of a snappier name, the two are known locally as The ...
Leafs defenceman Luke Schenn is joining Canada at the IIHF World Hockey Championship for the third time in four years.
Schenn joins Maple Leafs teammate Dion Phaneuf on Team Canada. Joey Crabb will be playing for Team USA which will be coached by Leafs assistant Scott Gordon. Greg Cronin will assist Gordon.
Schenn had 22 points (2-20) in 79 games for the Leafs this season.
Canada opens the world championship on May 4 with a game against Slovakia.
By any measure, especially his own, Leafs’ GM Brian Burke did not have a good year.
But in one element, Burke has been in front of the curve.
Big and bad is the new black.
In January, Burke reluctantly sent Colton Orr to the minors and publicly fretted the era of the fighter was over.
At the Leafs season-ending press conference Burke stressed the need to be bigger and stronger. “We need to address the size of the group and the compete level of the group,” he said.
“I like teams that go into buildings ...
Dallas Eakins remembers the moment if he can’t quite place the date.
It was 1992 and the Marlies coach was in the second year a 15-year playing career that would see him manage 120 games in the NHL. He would touch down in 10 different American and International League towns: Baltimore, Binghamton, Chicago, Cincinnati, New Haven, Moncton, Winnipeg, ...
Jake Gardiner isn’t quite done yet.
The 21-year-old defenceman has settled in with the Toronto Marlies as they finish their regular season with games in Abbotsford B.C. against the Heat, Friday and Sunday.
Leaf rookies Gardiner, Carter Ashton and Matt Frattin will contest their first pro playoff next week.
Mapleleafs.com writer Mike Ulmer caught up with Gardiner to get his view on his season with the Leafs and his upcoming playoff with the Marlies.
Mike Ulmer: You led all rookie defencemen with 30 points and were third in ice time for first-year defencemen. Now ...
A couple of Maple Leafs will be taking part in the World Hockey Championships in Finland/Sweden starting May4th. Captain Dion Phaneuf will be representing Canada at the Worlds while Joey Crabb has been named to the USA roster. Both John-Michael Liles and Phil Kessel have said they will not take part while Carl Gunnarsson was injured the last week of the season and his status for the tournament was in doubt.
Leafs assistant coach Scott Gordon has been named head coach for Team USA. This is the third straight year that ...
We now know the Leafs are scheduled to draft fifth in the June entry draft.
The next question is who will be available.
The Oilers are long shots to trade their first overall. There isn’t the depth of quality in the draft that would prompt the Oilers to trade down. Sarnia Sting winger Nail Yakupov (42 games, 31 goals, 38 assists, 69 points, 30 PIMs) is the stand-alone choice in the draft.
To get the skinny on this year’s player ...
To The Citizens of Leafs Nation:
Your ardour has sometimes moved me past words. You help pay my mortgage. When you cheer so earnestly as your team beats Tampa in the last home date of the season there isn’t much good in human nature I would not ascribe to you.
I love the fact that the parking lot attendant and the guys in the dressing room for Sunday night hockey have pithy jabs and exasperated complaints at the ready.
Sometimes I wonder if you are a ...
