News: The Bruins have sent Jordan Caron to AHL Providence, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: With Patrice Bergeron poised to return to the Boston lineup, Jordan Caron is the odd man out for now for the B's up front. In 17 games with the big club to date, Caron has one goal and three points.
News:Jordan Caron was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Leafs.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who had suited up for eight straight games, scored a point in his season debut with the B's, but has been held scoreless since. With Caron in the press box Saturday, Rich Peverley returned to the lineup on a line with Jay Pandolfo and Ryan Spooner. Now that Spooner has been returned to the AHL, however, Caron figures to suit up again Monday against Toronto.
News:Jordan Caron notched an assist in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Flyers.
Analysis:Jordan Caron saw 13:45 worth of ice time in his season debut with the Bruins, skating on the team's third line, with Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly. It's an assignment that carries modest upside, but as long as Caron holds it, he's worth a look for those looking for left wing depth in deeper formats.
News:Jordan Caron has been called up from AHL Providence, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: With forward Chris Bourque clearing waivers, a roster spot opened up for Jordan Caron at the NHL level. Though Caron hasn't lit it up at Providence this season (10 goals and 15 points on 44 games), he played 48 games with the big club last season and didn't look out of place. Look for him to slide into Bourque's spot on the B's third line for now, though there is speculation that one way or another the B's will try to add another top-nine forward to the mix in the coming weeks.
Bruins' Caron No Longer Dealing With Shoulder Injury
News:Jordan Caron (shoulder) returned to ice last Saturday for AHL Providence, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron had a decent chance at earning a spot with the Bruins heading into the season, but after sustaining the shoulder injury the night before the 119-day lockout ended, those hopes were but on hold. Chris Bourque ended up earning the role as left winger on the No. 3 line, put if he should struggle as the season drags on, Caron could eventually get his long-awaited call to Boston.
News:Jordan Caron (upper body) skated briefly on his own Thursday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: The report adds that Jordan Caron will likely return to AHL Providence once he is closer to being ready for game action. Caron's injury cost him a chance to compete for a slot on the B's third line, but once he is healthy and up to speed, the winger is a candidate for an in-season callup.
News:Jordan Caron suffered an upper body injury while playing for AHL Providence this past Friday that could sideline him for around three weeks, csnne.com reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Jordan Caron left the ice Friday "holding his left arm gingerly" after sustaining the injury. With the NHL lockout settled, and a shortened season around the corner, it looks like Caron may not be available to the Bruins for the early part of the season. Assuming that's the case, his injury would presumably pave the way for either Chris Bourque or Ryan Spooner to battle for a third line spot out of the gate. It's worth noting that Caron hadn't exactly been dazzling during his latest stint with Providence, racking up just eight points in 31 games, so once he's healthy, he may not have a spot waiting for him right away if the Bruins are healthy up front.
News:Jordan Caron was among the 19 players the Bruins assigned to AHL Providence in anticipation of an NHL lockout, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who stands to benefit from the playing time he'll see with Providence as he continues to develop, will be eligible to play in AHL (along with the other 18 players) in the event that the lockout happens. Also assigned were: Matt Bartkowski, Ryan Button, Carter Camper, Colby Cohen, Tommy Cross, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek, Michael Hutchinson, Jared Knight, Torey Krug, Kevan Miller, Adam Morrison, Tyler Randell, Max Sauve, Ryan Spooner, Niklas Svedberg, Zach Trotman,and David Warsofsky.
News:Jordan Caron is expected to fill the void left by Benoit Pouliot during the upcoming season, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Over the 2011-12 season, Jordan Caron, the Bruins' 2009 first-round draft pick, played 48 games while scoring seven goals, recording eight assists and averaging 11:32 minutes of ice time. Barring the Bruins signing another forward prior to the 2012-13 season, Caron should see increased ice time on the second or third line.
News:Jordan Caron (flu-like symptoms) will not play Tuesday against the Penguins, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Assuming that's all that is ailing Jordan Caron -- he took a shot off the foot Sunday -- then this is good news for the Bruins, with Caron presumably no worse than day-to-day.
News:Jordan Caron, who took a Zdeno Chara shot off his right foot Sunday, was not present for Tuesday's morning skate, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who has bounced between the B's first and fourth line of late, was replaced on the first line Tuesday morning by Rich Peverley, with Daniel Paille back with the team's energy line.
News:Jordan Caron skated on the Bruins' fourth line with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton in Sunday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who had a nice run in an expanded role earlier this month, was bumped down from the Bruins' first line Sunday, with Rich Peverley having returned to action. Caron took Sunday's switch in stride and meshed well with his new linemates. It remains to be seen if the combo sticks, but the return of Peverley gives the B's an extra forward, with Daniel Paille having taken a seat in the press box Sunday.
News:Jordan Caron, who notched an assist on the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over Buffalo, finished the game on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who now has six points over the last three games, continues to take advantage of injuries to top right wingers Nathan Horton and Rich Peverley and Thursday's bump up to the Bruins' second line is a promotion that could stick. It's not like the 2009 first-rounder suddenly developed new skills in order to blossom, but he's taken his recent opportunities, ran with them, and appears to be playing with a high degree of confidence, which has elevated his game considerably.
News:Jordan Caron scored two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Leafs.
Analysis:Jordan Caron now has five points over his last two games and while we don't expect him to keep such a pace up, Caron is playing with confidence these days, as he skates a regular shift on the Bruins' third line along with Benoit Pouliot and Chris Kelly. He's worth a pickup in deep leagues to see if he can continue to produce.
News:Jordan Caron scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis:Jordan Caron hadn't scored a point in his previous seven games, but with the Bruins hurting up front, he will have some opportunities to chip on while skating on the B's third line with Benoit Pouliot and Chris Kelly.
News:Jordan Caron was recalled by Boston on Saturday, BostonBruins.com reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron is averaging just 9:43 in ice time when he makes NHL appearances, and that number will need to spike upward for him to be a fantasy consideration in most cases.
News:Jordan Caron has been assigned to AHL Providence, the team's official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: The 21-year-old winger has put up four points (2G, 2A) in 17 games with the Boston Bruins this season. He has the skill set to make an impact in the future, but in the meantime, he'll work on his game as a Providence Bruin.
News:Jordan Caron grabbed his second goal of the season in Thursday's win over Montreal.
Analysis: A recent call-up from Providence (AHL), Jordan Caron got Boston on the board just 1:23 into the game and has two goals in 14 games on the season. More than likely, he'll be an extra body on the team's roster while Brad Marchand sits on the remaining four games of his suspension. Boston's forwards are rather set when they have a full complement of players; odds are Caron will be back in the minors soon.
News:Jordan Caron has been recalled from AHL Providence, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron who has one goal and two assists in 13 NHL games so far this season, gives the Bruins an extra forward on hand with Brad Marchand slated to sit out the team's next four games due to a suspension.
News: The Bruins assigned Jordan Caron to AHL Providence on Tuesday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron was recalled Monday, but apparently more for precautionary purposes than anything else. He is currently serving as the team's taxi player between Providence and Boston, so a return to the big club shouldn't be far off.
News:Jordan Caron has been recalled from AHL Providence, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron gives the Bruins some added forward depth, but it looks like he's been passed by Zach Hamill on the team's organizational depth chart, so he's an injury or two away from getting a chance to be a regular contributor with the big club.
News:Jordan Caron has been assigned to AHL Providence, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who has three points in 13 games for the Bruins, will be back before too long, but he is obviously better served by playing a regular shift with Providence than sitting in the press box with the big club.

Analysis: After sending Jordan Caron down to the minors on Thursday, the Bruins quickly recalled the winger. He will be available for Monday's game against Pittsburgh.
News: The Bruins have assigned Jordan Caron to AHL Providence, the team's official site reports.
Analysis:Jordan Caron, who has played in 11 games for Boston this season, recording one goal and two assists, will be back before too long, but he'll be well served seeing a regular shift in the AHL, as opposed to being a healthy scratch with the big club.
News:Jordan Caron scored his first goal of the season in the first period of Thursday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: The young forward has been seeing somewhat increased ice time over the last three games, and he's now got a point in consecutive games despite seeing almost no power-play time. The 2009 first-round pick seems to be coming along as he gets more opportunities, so don't be surprised to see his role increase further at some point this year.
News:Jordan Caron was recalled by the Bruins on Monday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: He picked up an assist in his return to Providence (AHL) on Sunday night, but could continue to see fourth-line minutes with the big club for the time being.
News:Jordan Caron was returned to Providence on Sunday, the Bruins' official Twitter feed reports.

News: Caron was among the players recalled from AHL Providence by the Bruins to bolster the team's playoff depth, NECN.com reports.
Analysis: Joining Caron are goalies Michael Hutchinson and Anton Khudobin, along with forwards Jamie Arniel, Zach Hamill, Lane MacDermid, and Trent Whitfield, plus defensemen Yury Alexandrov, Matt Bartkowski and Steven Kampfer. Everyone in the above group is an injury or two away from seeing the ice in the playoffs, but if Caron is needed, the budding power forward demonstrated earlier this season that he can keep up with the NHL pace.
News: The Bruins have assigned Caron to AHL Providence, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Caron, who has seven points in 23 NHL games this season, figures to be back up with the big club in time when the team needs some help up front. In the meantime, he'll benefit from regular ice time with the Baby B's.
News: The Bruins have recalled Caron from AHL Providence, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The 20-year-old Caron appeared in 20 NHL games earlier this season with the Bruins, with three goals and seven points in that span. Caron, who may skate on the team's fourth line this time around, figures to see work as a penalty killer (a role he was effective in with the big club) in the short term. In time though, he has the upside to develop into a solid power forward at the NHL level.
News: The Bruins have assigned Caron to AHL Providence, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Caron, who had 3-4-7 totals in 20 games, has more than held his own at the NHL level, but after being a healthy scratch for the Bruins' last two games, on the heels of Marc Savard's return, the team is wisely sending him down to get some regular playing time. He'll be back with the big club before too long.
News: Caron has been the odd man out for the Bruins up front since the return of Marc Savard, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Caron is just an injury away from getting back into the B's forward mix, but watching games from the press box isn't doing the youngster much good, so unless something breaks his way, he may need to see a stint in the AHL in order to get some needed ice time.
News: Caron (illness) returned to the Bruins' lineup in Wednesday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Caron, who saw 11:29 worth of ice time, continues to hold his own at the NHL level, but with seven points in 20 games, his fantasy impact has been limited thus far.
News: Caron (flu) did not travel with Bruins for Sunday's game against Atlanta, NESN.com reports.
Analysis: David Krejci is is also battling the flu, forcing the Bruins to recall Jamie Arniel from AHL Providence on an emergency basis.
News: Caron, who is battling the flu, sat out of practice Saturday, according to ESPNBoston.com.
Analysis: No need to rush Caron back if he is not 100 percent. His status for Sunday's game against Atlanta is unknown, but it doesn't sound good at this point.
News: Caron won't play against the Hurricanes on Friday due to a case of the flu, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: The 2009 first-rounder checks in with three goals and seven points in 19 games, marginal fantasy numbers, but overall the 20-year old has more than held his own at the NHL level and has already carved out a role with the B's as a solid penalty killer.
News: Caron scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Working on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Blake Wheeler, Caron has impressed coach Claude Julien and in dong so has earned significant penalty-killing time. "A guy I can't say enough about is Jordan Caron," Julien said Thursday. "He had an outstanding game tonight. But he's been so good on our penalty kill. Smart plays, stripping guys from the puck, being in the shooting lane. Him and (Bergeron) have formed a good pair." The budding power forward may not be quite ready for fantasy prime time, but it looks like his standing with the big club is secure and working on the B's second line, as he is now, does carry some upside.
News: Caron played left wing on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Blake Wheeler in his NHL debut Sunday, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Caron, who saw some penalty-killing shifts in the game, joined the B's lineup Sunday at the expense of Daniel Paille. As long as he is a candidate to be cycled in and out of the lineup, Caron is not a strong fantasy option, but he's worth stashing in keeper leagues, given his power forward upside.
News: Caron skated on a line with Mark Recchi, centered by Patrice Bergeron against the Belfast Giant Select squad Saturday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: From all indications, Caron will make the Bruins' final roster and not only that, he's likely to stick on the aforementioned trio, a.k.a. the team's No. 2 line. "He's a big body (6-foot-3, 205) who skates well and protects the puck well," said coach Claude Julien. It remains to be seen how much scoring the 19-year-old will provide out of the gate, but as long as he can stay healthy -- which has been a challenge for Caron -- he has a chance to develop into a good power forward for the B's.
News: Caron has caught the eye of coach Claude Julien, Boston Globe reports. "You look at him and he doesn't look nervous," Julien said of the Bruins' 2009 first-rounder. "I know I've talked a lot about him. But what I liked about Jordan is that he's as reliable as can be. If somebody came to the game tonight and didn't know anything about anybody, they would have looked at Caron and probably thought he was a veteran."
Analysis: It's early, but Caron could bypass the AHL if he continues to impress the B's coaching staff. That is, if he can stay healthy, not a given with the budding power forward, as he's had durability issues in the past.
News: The Boston Globe reports that RW Jordan Caron, the Bruins' top pick in this year's draft, was sent home to his junior team on Sunday. Caron was hindered in camp by a fractured collarbone "For sure, it was disappointing, my first NHL camp," said Caron. "But I learned a lot just being in camp. It was still a great experience and I think Im going to be ready for next year."
Analysis: Caron had a nice 67-point campaign last year in the juniors, which led to him being selected with the 25th overall pick in June. He might have some keeper value in deeper formats, but the 18-year-old is likely at least a couple of years away from the NHL.
