CHRIS THORBURN RUMORS

Thorburn lifts Jets to 2-1 win over Hurricanes

Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who are 9-2-0 since Paul Maurice took over as coach on Jan. 12. Maurice coached 920 games for the Hurricanes franchise during two stints with the team. Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for the Jets...

Video: Jordin Tootoo Fights Chris Thorburn 16 Seconds Into Red Wings-Jets Game

With a large contingent of friends and family on hand for the Detroit Red Wings’ game against the Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba native Jordin Tootoo wasted no time dropping the gloves. Mike Babcock gave Tootoo a rare start, and Tootoo responded by fighting Chris Thorburn 16 seconds into the game. Both players got a couple punches away — mostly of the swing-and-miss variety — before...

Hockey Fights of the Week: 3/11 - 3/17

It's always fun when two teams face each other multiple times in the same week. Typically, tempers and emotions run high and gloves hit the ice. This was the case when Toronto and Winnipeg met twice last week, skating on March 12th and March 16th. Round one saw Colton Orr upset Chris Thorburn when he continued to throw punches even after he was out of his sweater. The second...

Colton Orr destroys Chris Thorburn in heavyweight fight

After Colton Orr (6’3″ 222 lbs) and Chris Thorburn (6’3″ 210 lbs) mixed it up during the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on March 12th, they went for round 2 on Saturday night.  Unfortunately for Thorburn, like round 1, Colton Orr tuned him up.  The best punch was thrown at about the 36 second mark by Orr.  He worked his arm inside and Thorburn could do nothing...

Chris Thorburn Not Happy With Colton Orr

from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, Thorburn, however, is beloved in the Jets dressing room for his willingness to stand up for teammates. So when Orr slighted him near the end of what until then had been an honourable exchange, the rest of the Jets took notice. With less than three minutes expired in the game, the two big men engaged. Orr's jersey came...

Epic heavyweight tilt between Colton Orr and Chris Thorburn

Early in the first period of the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on Tuesday night, Colton Orr and Chris Thorburn got into it.  This was a true heavyweight tilt with Orr weighing in at 6’3″ 222 lbs and Thorburn checking in at 6’3″ 230 lbs.  Thorburn did a good job of keeping Orr at bay early, but once Orr was able to wriggle his arm free by getting his sleeve off...

Jets All Out Top 25 II: #20 Chris Thorburn

  Chris Thorburn, 29, RW, 6’3, 230 lbs Last Year's Ranking: #17 This Year's Ranking: #20 Difference: -3 Chris Thorburn is a touchy subject for me. First of all, he is a fourth line player. Second of all, he doesn't score much. And third of all, he isn't that great of a scrapper. So, the only thing he was going for...

Worst Player So Far This Season

I find it interesting to try to try to keep track of the worst regular player in the NHL each season.  I want to see what kind of player keeps himself in the lineup despite not providing anything positive for his team.  Generally the worst regular in the league is either a goon with limited ice time or a hard working but untalented depth player.  Both of these types of players...
