Bruins’ top pick Caron breaks collarbone

According to a report on TSN, Boston Bruins first round Jordan Caron broke his collarbone Saturday while playing in the first intrasquad game during tryouts for Canada’s junior hockey team entry for the World Juniors tournament. The tryout camp is taking place in Saskatoon, and Caron was stretching out for a pass when he was flattened by Regina Pats defenseman Colen Tuebert at the blue line.

A broken collarbone takes roughly 6-8 weeks to heal up, so the injury may put Caron in danger of falling behind amid his first B’s training camp in September. Caron had impressed Bruins officials during July’s prospect development camp with his skill level, size and strength on the puck.

 ”We saw him this morning. He didn’t look too great,” fellow Team Canada hopeful Ryan Ellis told TSN on Sunday. “He was in a lot of pain.”
