|Bruins assign Jordan Caron to Providence||02.14.11 at 11:37 am ET|
The Bruins announced Monday that they have assigned rookie forward Jordan Caron to Providence. Caron played in three games since being called up last week, registering a combined zero points and a minus-1 rating against the Canadiens and two contests vs. the Red Wings.
Caron, 20, has seven points (3 G, 4 A) in 23 games for the Bruins this season. He spent the last three contests playing on a line with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton. Winger Daniel Paille‘s four-game suspension is up, allowing for him to return to the Bruins lineup Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
|Tyler Seguin a healthy scratch vs. Red Wings||02.11.11 at 11:45 am ET|
Bruins coach Claude Julien said that the team will be going with the same lineup Friday against the Red Wings as they had in Wednesday’s 8-6 win over the Canadiens. That means that as far as rookies go, Zach Hamill and Jordan Caron are in and second overall pick Tyler Seguin is out.
It will be the second consecutive game Seguin has been a healthy scratch, and technically the third time this season. He was scratched twice in December, one of which was the result of flu-like symptoms.
In 51 games this season, Seguin has eight goals and nine assists for 17 points and a plus-1 rating. He has averaged 12:18 of ice time, though he has played less than 10 minutes of the last four games.
|Bruins work on power play prior to practice, Patrice Bergeron leaves early||02.08.11 at 11:25 am ET|
WILMINGTON — A familiar face was on the ice at Ristuccia Arena Tuesday as Jordan Caron and the Bruins practiced after having Monday off. The first 20 minutes were spent working on the power play, with units consisting of Zdeno Chara, Mark Recchi, David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic, as well as a unit of Dennis Seidenberg, Steven Kampfer, Brad Marchand, Gregory Campbell, and Michael Ryder getting work in.
The rest of the B’s took the ice at 11 a.m. Caron is skating on the Campbell/Thornton line, while a grey sweater-wearing unit of Tyler Seguin, Blake Wheeler, Zach Hamill, and Ryder was used in all sorts of different combinations. Bergeron left the ice at about 11:20 a.m. after a puck hit him in the face area on a drill. Tuukka Rask immediately opened the door at the other end of the ice, with Bergeron leaving practice in a hurry.
Here is a look at the lines:
Lucic – Krejci – Horton
Marchand – Bergeron – Recchi
Seguin – Wheeler – Hamill – Ryder
Caron/Paille – Campbell – Thornton
We’ll have more from the room after the conclusion of practice.
|Bruins recall Jordan Caron from Providence||02.07.11 at 6:28 pm ET|
In an announcement that would probably be much bigger news if it weren’t for Marc Savard‘s season ending, the Bruins on Monday recalled winger Jordan Caron from Providence. Caron began the season in the NHL 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 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 draft. He impressed early on in training camp but struggled with confidence, making him a healthy scratch in the game’s first season. He went on to score his first career goal against Martin Brodeur on Oct. 16, his second NHL game. Caron did not score a goal over the 13 games leading to his demotion.
|Bruins send Caron to Providence||12.06.10 at 4:42 pm ET|
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced Tuesday afternoon that the team had assigned Jordan Caron to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.
In his first pro season, the forward made the Bruins roster out of training camp. The 20-year-old has appeared in 20 games for the B’s, recording three goals and four assists. Caron was a healthy scratch for the last two games.
The Sayabec, Quebec native was selected by the Bruins in the first round (25th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

|Jordan Caron and David Krejci return to Bruins’ practice||11.29.10 at 1:40 pm ET|
WILMINGTON — The Bruins wrapped up practice at Ristuccia Arena on Monday with some familiar faces back on the ice. David Krejci and Jordan Caron, both of whom were held out of Sunday’s loss to the Thrashers with the flu, made their returns to the ice. Caron missed two games with the flu, while Marco Sturm, recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, also caught it but was back on the ice Monday.
|David Krejci and Jordan Caron expected to miss Sunday’s game vs. Thrashers||11.28.10 at 3:28 pm ET|
Bruins center David Krejci, who was held out of Saturday’s practice with the flu and was not on the team flight to Atlanta, will not play on Sunday vs. the Thrashers, according to multiple reports. Claude Julien had left open the possibility of Krejci or Jordan Caron, also out with the flu, potentially meeting the team in Atlanta, but neither ended up travelling, according to the Boston Globe. Sunday’s game will be the second straight contest Caron has missed, as he was kept out of Friday’s 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes after getting sick on Thursday.
With the two out, Jamie Arniel will make his NHL debut. Arniel was recalled on an emergency basis on Saturday. In 19 games this season, the 21-year-old Arniel has nine goals and seven assists, leading the Providence Bruins with 16 points.
