Bruins reassign Jordan Caron to AHL | 04/16/2013 4:41 PM
NewsBoston Bruins reassign Jordan Caron to AHL Providence.

ImpactWith Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron on their way back into the lineup, there was no room for Caron at the NHL level. He's not worthy fantasy consideration this season.
Jordan Caron nets first goal of the year | 04/09/2013 7:17 AM
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.

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.
