Flames Forward Joe Colborne Shares a Little Love with Kodiaks

oe Colborne doesn’t need a key to get into a particular city in northern Alberta.

But he’s got one just in case.

The Calgary Flames forward was handed a key to the city by Camrose mayor, Norm Mayer, during the Olympic break.

It will be a centre-piece of Colborne’s new Calgary home.

“I’m just about to move into my new place, so I’m sure that will be front and centre somewhere,” Colborne said. “It’s such a cool spot and point of pride to me to say I played for the (AJHL’s Camrose) Kodiaks.

“It was two of the biggest years of my life both in hockey and as a human being.”

Of course, the Kodiaks — the AJHL team Colborne played for during his junior days — also rolled out the red carpet.

The Kodiaks retired his No. 12 jersey last week in a full day of celebrations.
