Braydon Coburn (born February 27, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).


Playing careerEdit

Coburn played major junior hockey with the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League (WHL). He was awarded the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as rookie of the year for the 2001–02 season. Although his points total dipped from 37 points to 19 the following year, he remained a top prospect and was drafted 8th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Atlanta Thrashers.

Upon being drafted, he returned to the WHL for two more seasons and was awarded the Doug Wickenheiser Memorial Trophy in 2004 as humanitarian of the year. On February 4, 2005, Coburn tied a WHL record for most goals by a defenceman in a game with 4 against the Seattle Thunderbirds in a 7-4 win.[1] He completed his final year with the Winter Hawks in 2004–05 with a junior career-high 44 points.

During Coburn's time in the WHL, he also competed in two World Junior Championships for Team Canada, winning silver in 2004 and gold in 2005.

After several years in the Thrashers organization, splitting time between the NHL and the Thrashers' minor league affiliate, the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League (AHL), he was dealt on February 24, 2007, at the trade deadline, to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for defenceman Alexei Zhitnik. The following season, in 2007–08, Coburn emerged with a 9-goal, 36-point season with Philadelphia. In the midst of the Flyers' 2008 playoff run, Coburn was injured on May 11, 2008, two minutes into game 2 of the Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins when a deflected puck hit him above the eye. The resulting gash required 50 stitches to be closed; Coburn did not return for the rest of the series.

On July 1, 2010, Coburn signed a two-year contract extension with the Flyers.[2]
