Caron/By S. Bradley

The Bruins today assigned forward Jordan Caron to their Providence (AHL) farm club.

This is the second straight season that Caron broke camp with the parent club but failed to stick.

In four games this season, Caron hadn’t recorded a point and was minus-2. He’d been relegated to a healthy scratch the last two games after the return of David Krejci from injury, as the Bruins are trying to give free-agent signee Benoit Pouliot every opportunity to earn his lineup spot.

Last season, Caron played in 19 of the Bruins’ first 20 games before suffering an injury. He posted 3-3-6 totals and a plus-4 rating. He played one more NHL game before he was sent to Providence Dec. 6. He returned to Boston once at midseason because of an injury and then was a member of the “Black Aces” in the playoffs.

Today for the P-Bruins Caron was plus-1 with an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to Albany.
