|Fifth time for everything: Bruins send Jordan Caron back to Providence||01.03.12 at 12:27 pm ET|
WILMINGTON — Following Tuesday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena, the Bruins sent forward Jordan Caron to Providence.
The move marks the fifth time this season that B’s have sent Caron, their 2009 first-round pick, to the AHL. In nine games for Providence this season, Caron has one goal and five assists for six points.
Caron’s demotion means that former eighth overall pick Zach Hamill will be the team’s extra forward for the time being. In eight games for the Bruins this season, Hamill has two assists and is still looking for his first career goal.

The Bruins recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron Monday after the two were sent to Providence for the weekend.
It was the second time this month the B’s have sent the two young players to the AHL, as it has allowed the healthy scratches to get game action to remain fresh. Caron had an assist in two games this weekend for Providence.

The Bruins announced Friday that they have sent forward Jordan Caron and defenseman Steven Kampfer to Providence.
Much like when they were sent down on the first of the month, the move allows the two players who are usually the team’s healthy scratches to get some game action. The two will play for Providence on Saturday and Sunday.
The fact that the B’s sent Kampfer down suggests captain Zdeno Chara, who has missed the last two games with a leg injury, will be ready to play Saturday against the Flyers in Philadelphia.

|Morning skate notes: James Reimer starting for Leafs||12.03.11 at 11:42 am ET|
The Bruins got back on the ice Saturday morning in anticipation for the second game of a home-and-home with the Maple Leafs. Boston currently leads Toronto by one point in the Northeast division after Wednesday’s 6-3 victory at Air Canada Centre.
All of the regulars were on the ice for the Bruins Saturday morning, with the exception of defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron. Both players were sent to Providence Wednesday so they could get some game action, and both players played in Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Connecticut Whale. Caron had an assist, while Kampfer went without a point and had an even rating.
One are that remains a bit of a question mark for Saturday is the Leafs’ goaltending situation. Jonas Gustavsson is slated to be the starter, but No. 1 netminder James Reimer has been cleared to play.
[UPDATE: 12:32 pm] Both Reimer and coach Ron Wilson told reporters that it will indeed be Reimer in net. The Leafs have not lost a game in regulation this season with Reimer in net (4-0-1).
