"You put your right skate take your right skate out..."

Editor's Note: Andrey Osadchenko has another interview with a Leafs prospect. This time it's PPP's # 5 on their ranking of the Top 25 Under 25 Maple Leafs prospects: Joe Colborne .

You were recently sent down from the NHL where ironically enough you played 2 games against the team that originally drafted you - the Boston Bruins. What was that like?

It was a pretty cool experience obviously. Playing in the NHL it's a dream come true. The Bruins are a great team. They dominated us pretty bad but it's still great to play against a team that let you go. You kind of want to go and show them what they've missed. Again, they had a great season so far. Hopefully the Leafs are going to make it to the play-offs and we're going ot beat them there.

Editor's Note : Andrey Osadchenko is back with another interview with a Leafs prospect. This time he speaks to the player that finished 8th on PPP's Top 25 Under 25.

It's really surprising to learn that despite having never played in the CHL, the Leafs drafted you 99th overall in the 4th round, which is huge. Were you surprised you got picked so high?

Yeah, I was playing juniors in Alberta. I kind of had a feeling I was going to get drafted but I didn't know with who. I talked to Toronto and I talked to a bunch of teams... I had a pretty good year that year. It was definitely as high as I thought I was going to go.

How did that happen that you never played in the CHL in the first place?

I went to college. I couldn't play in the CHL because otherwise I couldn't go to the college. So I went to college. I went to North Dakota for 4 years. For it was either college or CHL. I chose college.
