Providence Welcomes Caron to Fold
2009 First Round Pick has Appeared in 20 Games for Bruins
The Providence Bruins, in their 19th season in the American Hockey League, today announced that the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins have assigned rookie forward Jordan Caron to Providence.
Caron, 20, has appeared in 20 of Boston's 25 games this season, recording three goals and four assists for his first seven career points, along with a plus-four rating. The rookie made his professional debut on Oct. 10 at Phoenix and later scored his first pro goal for his first point at New Jersey on Oct. 16. He has been a healthy scratch for Boston's last two contests.
Prior to turning pro, Caron spent four seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Rimouski Oceanic and Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, totaling 116 goals and 120 assists for 236 points in 237 games between the regular season and playoffs. He played parts of his first four years with Rimouski before a trade to Rouyn-Noranda last Jan. 7.
The Sayabec, Quebec, native was selected by Boston 25th overall in round one of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
