Bruins recall Jordan Caron from Providence

In an announcement that would probably be much bigger news if it weren’t for Marc Savard [1]‘s season ending, the Bruins on Monday recalled winger Jordan Caron from Providence. Caron began the season in the NHL [2] before being sent down on Dec. 6.

In 20 games for Boston this season, Caron had three goals and four assists for seven points and averaged 13:17 of ice time per night. The 20-year-old had 6-11=17 totals for Providence over 27 games.

The Bruins are currently without winger Daniel Paille [3] for the next three games due to a four-game suspension, which could potentially help Caron find a spot in the lineup given that both players are strong on the penalty kill.

Caron was selected by the Bruins with the 25th overall pick of the 2009 NHL [4] draft. He impressed early on in training camp but struggled with confidence [5], making him a healthy scratch in the game’s first season. He went on to score his first career goal against Martin Brodeur [6] on Oct. 16, his second NHL game. Caron did not score a goal over the 13 games leading to his demotion.
