Jordan Caron returns to Boston's lineup Tues. | 03/05/2014 7:50 AM
NewsJordan Caron got back into Boston's lineup on Tuesday night.
ImpactHe made his first appearance since Jan. 27 because Loui Eriksson wasn't in the fold because of a "minor issue." Caron generated an assist, four hits, three shots, four penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating in 12:18 of ice time.

NewsJordan Caron returned to action on Saturday January 25.
Jordan Caron sits Saturday with back injury | 01/06/2014 9:48 AM
NewsJordan Caron missed Saturday's game with a sore back.
ImpactHe has one goal in 23 appearances this season and shouldn't be on your fantasy radar. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.
Jordan Caron isn't serving as a regular | 12/24/2013 3:22 PM
NewsJordan Caron has been used sparingly this season.
ImpactAlthough Caron got a one-way contract for the 2013-14 campaign, he hasn't been able to establish himself as a regular with the Bruins. He has played in just 19 games and is averaging 11:20 minutes per contest. It's starting to look like the former first round pick will never have any meaningful fantasy value in standard leagues, but we wouldn't write him off entirely.
Caron continues to be a healthy scratch | 11/16/2013 8:57 AM
NewsJordan Caron was once again a healthy scratch.
ImpactThe 23-year-old forward has only played in nine games this season and has registered only one point. For those of you waiting for Caron to break out, we suggest you give up the dream. It does not look as if he will be a fantasy asset in the near or long term.
Jordan Caron gets back into Boston's lineup | 10/30/2013 6:34 AM
NewsJordan Caron has gotten back into Boston's lineup with Loui Eriksson sidelined by a concussion.
CSN New England
ImpactHe was relegated to the press box when Carl Soderberg got back into the lineup from injury, but he's back in now with Eriksson hurt. "Two games sitting in the stands I wasn't very happy, but I just need to keep ready for when I'm needed," said Caron. "I know they have confidence in me, and so far I've been playing pretty good. I just need to make plays offensively, and I need to finish off any of my checks." He can play either wing position and does a good job defensively, but he shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.
Jordan Caron, Bartkowski likely to sit again | 10/23/2013 6:48 AM
NewsJordan Caron was a healthy scratch last Saturday and he'll probably watch Wednesday's game from the press box as well.
ImpactHe was taken out of the lineup because of Carl Soderberg's return from injury. Defenseman Matt Bartkowski is likely to scratched again too.
Jordan Caron's currently playing for his spot | 10/11/2013 5:34 AM
NewsJordan Caron has continued to stake his claim for an active roster spot with the Boston Bruins.
ImpactCaron has looked good on the team's third line with Chris Kelly and Reilly Smith. He had a great chance to score against Colorado, but was robbed by Jean-Sebastien Giguere in a 2-0 loss. Caron has one goal in three games but he's playing like he doesn't want to be scratched once Carl Soderberg is able to return from injury.
Jordan Caron finds the back of the net | 10/06/2013 9:29 AM
NewsJordan Caron scored a goal in Saturday's contest.
ImpactIt was Caron's first of the season. He's getting ready playing time with Carl Soderberg (ankle) sidelined, but needs to make a strong impression if he wants to earn a more permanent spot in the lineup.
Jordan Caron plays well in Bruins win | 10/05/2013 7:48 AM
NewsJordan Caron played well in only 10:21 minutes of action Thursday.
ImpactCaron was held off the scoresheet but managed a couple of shots on goal, two takeaways and a blocked shot. He made the team as the 13th forward but with Carl Soderberg out of action, Caron saw fourth line minutes. "I think I had a good game," Caron said. "We could've had a few goals and I had some chances. Obviously they didn't go in tonight, but I think we did a good job tonight." Don't expect much fantasy wise from Caron as he will be happy to remain in the NHL all season as a fourth line player.
Jordan Caron likely to be on 3rd line Thurs. | 10/03/2013 9:52 AM
NewsJordan Caron has been skating on Boston's third line for the last couple of days.
ImpactIt looks like he will fill in for injured forward Carl Soderberg in Boston's first game of the 2013-14 campaign Thursday night. Caron made the Bruins as the team's 13th forward.
Jordan Caron stays with Bruins as an extra | 10/01/2013 6:18 AM
NewsJordan Caron made Boston's roster as the club's 13th forward.
ImpactHe may get a chance to play Thursday if David Krejci or Carl Soderberg is unable to suit up for Boston's first game of the season. Caron can play well defensively, but he admits that his offensive game still needs work. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar heading into the season.
Jordan Caron fights for final roster spot | 09/29/2013 9:27 AM
NewsJordan Caron is waiting to see if he secured the Bruins' final roster spot.
ImpactIt has come down to Caron and Nick Johnson. "I think they know that I really want this," Caron said. "I've been working hard the last three years, this is my fourth year, and I'm just hoping the chips fall into place. I'm just trying to work really hard, be good on the forecheck, be good on the stick, create some battles down low. That's my game and it's what I'm trying to do." Caron was taken with the 25th pick overall in 2009 and has struggled to maintain a spot with the Boston Bruins. He had a goal and three points in 17 games with Boston in 2013.
Jordan Caron impresses in 5-0 win Friday | 09/28/2013 8:24 AM
NewsJordan Caron really improved his chances of grabbing the Bruins' last roster spot with a two-goal performance in Friday night's 5-0 win over Winnipeg.
ImpactThe Bruins will pare down their roster to 23 in preparation for the team's regular season opener scheduled for Tuesday night and have only a reserve forward spot to settle on. GM Peter Chiarelli indicated that the team will carry eight defenseman so Kevan Millar will make the squad as an eighth rearguard. That leaves one forward spot open and four candidates to fill it. Caron is competing with Ryan Spooner, Nick Johnson and Matt Fraser and seems to have the upper hand. Stay tuned.
Jordan Caron might be heading for waivers | 09/27/2013 6:44 AM
NewsJordan Caron may have one last chance to impress Boston's brass.
ImpactIf he gets to play in Friday's preseason finale then it could be his last opportunity to land a spot in the Bruins' lineup. Caron would require waivers to be sent down and there's a chance that he could be claimed. "I'm trying not to think about it," he said, "These are not my decisions, obviously. But I want to be a part of this organization and I want to stay here."
Jordan Caron not having a good camp | 09/21/2013 8:46 AM
NewsJordan Caron, who was expected to start the season on the Bruins' third line, has not been making much of an impression in the pre-season thus far.
CSN New England
ImpactIn fact, according to Joe Haggerty of CSN New England he has been "largely invisible in training camp" and is at risk to be demoted to the AHL. Caron did not show up to camp early as many expected and he has played poorly in games to date, including Thursday's contest where he took a bad penalty leading to three Detroit goals and was involved in a terrible line change. Those of you who were thinking of drafting Caron expecting a modest break out from the talented forward this season, may want to re-think that strategy.
Jordan Caron will probably play on 3rd line | 09/15/2013 8:41 AM
NewsJordan Caron is likely to start the 2013-14 campaign on the third line.
CSN New England
ImpactCaron has been bouncing between the AHL and NHL for years, but he's on a one-way contract this season. He's not expected to do enough offensively to warrant selecting him in standard fantasy league drafts.
Bruins want Jordan Caron to play 2-way game | 09/13/2013 7:43 AM
NewsThe Boston Bruins want to see more of an offensive punch from Jordan Caron.
Impact"We don't want him to just think about not getting scored on," said coach Claude Julien. "We want him to think about being a good two-way player, because we know he's capable of doing it." Caron wasn't available after the lockout ended because of a shoulder injury and when he did get his opportunity, Chris Kelly went down with a broken leg. He signed a one-year, one-way deal worth $640,000 during the summer and is competing for a third-line spot at training camp.
Jordan Caron will be seeking 3rd-line role | 08/21/2013 10:10 AM
NewsJordan Caron might be in line to earn a spot on Boston's third line at training camp.
ImpactChris Kelly is expected to center the third unit and it is being projected that Carl Soderberg will play at left wing. Caron, who got a one-way deal in July, may be the favorite to get the last spot on that trio. Prospects Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight, as well as former Dallas Stars Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser, will be competing with Caron for the position though.
Jordan Caron signs a one-way contract | 07/19/2013 1:32 PM
NewsJordan Caron has agreed to a one-year, one-way deal with the Boston Bruins.
Joe Haggerty on Twitter
ImpactCaron will earn $640,000 in 2013-14. Given that he managed to get a one-way contract, it's very likely that he will start the season on Boston's roster.
J. Caron might get larger role with Bruins | 07/04/2013 9:19 AM
NewsJordan Caron might land a regular spot with the Boston Bruins next season.
ImpactNathan Horton is expected to leave the team as an unrestricted free agent. The Bruins are expected to pursue alternatives, but with their cap situation, they might attempt to fill the void internally. Caron has 11 goals and 25 points in 88 career NHL games.

Fluto Shinzawa on Twitter
ImpactCaron appeared in 17 games with Bruins, compiling one goal and two assists. Both Camper and Miller spent the entire season with Boston's AHL affiliate in Providence. All three players will be restricted free agents Friday but serve no fantasy value.
Bruins' Jordan Caron may play in Game 2 | 06/13/2013 5:24 PM
NewsJordan Caron may get to play in Game 2 Saturday depending on the status of Nathan Horton.
ImpactHorton suffered an undisclosed injury in the first overtime session of Wednesday's triple overtime loss to Chicago and he didn't return. Caron will probably skate on Boston's third line if he plays.

NewsJordan Caron scored his first goal of the season Monday night.
ImpactHe was a healthy scratch for the past two games and has three points in 14 matches with Boston this year. Caron isn't worthy of fantasy consideration at this time.
Jordan Caron enjoys solid season debut | 03/11/2013 9:06 AM
NewsJordan Caron contributed an assist on a goal by Chris Kelly in his season debut Saturday against Philadelphia.
ImpactThe Bruins' third line, which has mostly featured Kelly and Rich Peverley, has had issues defensively and offensively this season, but Caron's presence appeared to stabilize it better. "I thought he had a real good game today, and so did they," coach Claude Julien said of Caron and his linemates after the contest. "Let's not overlook the fact that Caron didn't make that line all of a sudden be better. All three guys were really good today. I thought Pevs was skating well and was good. He was strong with the puck. So was Kells. That whole line was better today as a threesome." Caron played 13:45 and he added two penalty minutes, a hit and blocked shots.
Jordan Caron practices on Bruins 3rd line | 03/09/2013 7:50 AM
NewsNewly-proomoted Jordan Caron practised on the Bruins' third line Friday.
ImpactThere is a good chance he will be in the Boston lineup Saturday afternoon against the Flyers playing alongside some combination of Rich Peverley, Chris Kelly and Jay Pandolfo. Although Caron may have some promise, we do not expect him to make much of a fantasy impact this season.
Boston promotes Jordan Caron | 03/08/2013 3:19 PM

J. Caron returns to action for AHL P-Bruins | 01/30/2013 11:10 AM
NewsJordan Caron has recovered from the shoulder injury he sustained while playing in the AHL with Providence during the lockout.
ImpactHe returned to the lineup last Saturday in a 4-3 shootout win over Worcester. Caron was expected to compete for a roster spot at training camp with Boston, but his shoulder ailment prevented him from doing so. The Bruins plan to give Chris Bourque, who is playing on the team's third line instead, a longer look which will keep Caron in the minors for the time being.
| 01/19/2013 9:00 PM
NewsJordan Caron returned to action on Friday January 18.
Jordan Caron (upper body) could miss 3 weeks | 01/07/2013 12:07 PM
NewsJordan Caron suffered an upper body injury on Friday night while playing for AHL Providence and according to coach Bruce Cassidy the ailment is expected to keep him on the shelf for almost three weeks.
CSN New England
ImpactIf this projection is accurate then the Boston Bruins would have to begin the 2012-13 campaign without the services of Caron, who was penciled in to play on the third line alongside Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly. Caron's NHL roster spot may have been in doubt anyway because he has struggled in the minors this year with just eight points and a minus-6 rating in 31 matches.
