According to a league source, the Bruins have signed forward Jordan Caron to a one-year, one-way contract worth $600,000. The signing was first reported by Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

Caron, 23, was a restricted free agent after playing last season on a one-year, one-way, $640,000 pact. He served as the team’€™s 13th forward, skating in 35 regular-season games with a goal and two assists for three points.

The 2009 first-round pick also played seven playoff games, scoring in Game 3 of the first round against the Red Wings.

Though Caron is under contract with the Bruins, the team has been looking at trade options for him in order to find him a team that has more playing time to give him. A defensively sound wing, Caron has not played more than 48 NHL [2] games in a season since turning pro in 2010.

With Caron now under contract, the Bruins have $3.818 million in salary cap space, assuming Marc Savard [3] ($4.027 million cap hit) is placed on long-term injured reserve.
