Bruins Acquire Kaberle from Toronto
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has acquired defenseman Tomas Kaberle in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs, in exchange for the Bruins own first-round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, forward Joe Colborne, and a conditional second-round pick in 2012 (Toronto will receive the Bruins own second round pick in 2012 if the Bruins make it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2011 or re-sign Kaberle following the end of the 2010-11 season).

Kaberle is expected to join the Bruins in Ottawa tonight (Friday, February 18) and be available for tonight’s game against the Senators.

Kaberle, a 6’1”, 214-lb native of Rakovnik, Czech Republic, has 3-35=38 totals in 58 games this season, along with 16 PIM.

In 878 career games, all with the Maple Leafs, Kaberle has 83-437=520 totals with 246 PIM. His best statistical season came in 2005-06, when he registered 9 goals and 58 assists for 67 points. Over the last three seasons, Kaberle has combined totals of 6-60=66 on the power play.

Originally drafted by Toronto in the 8th round (204th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, the 32-year-old Kaberle is in his 12th NHL season. Kaberle is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Kaberle has represented the Czech Republic in the Olympics three times (2002, 2006, 2010), with 3-5=8 totals in 17 games. He won a bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and at the 2010 Winter Olympics he played alongside fellow Bruin David Krejci in Vancouver, BC.

Colborne, 21, who has yet to make his NHL debut, has 12-14=26 totals and 35 PIM in 55 games this season with the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League). Originally drafted by the Bruins in the first round (16th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Colborne has appeared in 61 career AHL games, all with Providence, with 12-16=28 totals and 37 PIM. The 6’5”, 213-lb native of Calgary, Alberta played two seasons of college hockey at the University of Denver, where he registered 32-40=72 totals and 54 PIM in 79 games.
