Calgary’s Homeboy                                  

Kristen Hallett: You cut your beautiful curls, who gave you the most shit about it?
Joe Colborne: “I got it from the guys on who are losing or have lost their hair already. They told me to take advantage of it while I can.”
Who was your favourite NHLer as a kid?
“My favourite player, growing up, was Al MacInnis. When he was traded I was still really young and I remember balling my eyes out, because I didn’t understand what ‘getting traded’ meant. I just knew he wasn’t a Flame any more. Every year, for my birthday, my parents would take me to watch him play for St. Louis at the Dome.”
What do you do to escape and relax when everybody is up in your grill?
“Naps. I can nap anywhere, anytime. Couch, chair, bed- doesn’t matter.”
What do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
“Independence, especially with my busy schedule.”
Favourite road city?
What are you reading?
“I read a ton of different stuff. But, I guess, the political thrillers by Vince Flynn on his character Mitch Rapp.”
Song on your iTunes you do not want anyone to know?
“Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus. I just can’t bring myself to delete it.”
What is your cutest or funniest fan experience in Calgary?
“Well, I was never the most outgoing kid. I was pretty quiet when I was younger. You see the kids who sprint up to you and are talking your ear off, and then you see the kids in the background, that was always me. The kid that wanted the autograph so bad, but was too nervous. So I always try and make sure I take care of those kids.”
Whats your favourite thing about Calgary?
“Stampede. The entire city comes together.”
What did you miss most about Calgary when you were away?
“The mountains. I always took them for granted until I moved.”
Your go-to meal in Calgary?
“Fergus and Bix for the Teri-Hot Wings.”
Who would you say you are the closest with on the team?
“I’m probably close with Boums (Lance Bouma) and Monny (Sean Monahan), but we have a very tight-knit team.

Johnny Gaudreau is registered in summer classes at Boston College....

He makes me feel so unaccomplished. Here he is, just finished playing 100 games in the NHL in his first season with 64 point, is going to win the Calder Trophy, and isn’t even taking a few months off to just train and relax- he’s going back to College.


It’s Stampede time in Calgary, Y'all 🐴 (ft. Ferklund, JoCo, and Coach Hartley)

Johnny Gaudreau, our perfect son

What is your idea of perfect happiness? Having a family somewhere warm.

In a ‘dream world’ where do you see yourself in 10 years? Playing in the NHL

In the real world, where do you see yourself in 10 years? Have a family and being successful.

Interests? Community service with kids at a local rink.

So Johnny is basically perfect, and extremely adorable. The family answers are the cutest, and the interests bit was s’cute. (x)
