Caron sent down to Providence

By James Murphy

The Bruins announced Sunday that they have assigned forward Jordan Caron to Providence of the AHL.

Caron played in four games this season, averaging 9:03 in ice time, with no points. The Bruins' 2009 first-round pick made the team out of camp for the second straight season after playing 23 NHL games in 2010-11, but was unable to sustain a spot in the lineup.

As of now, the Bruins are carrying only 12 forwards and seven defenseman (counting the injured Adam McQuaid). With four days off between games, a call-up for a forward from Providence could be coming before Thursday's home game against the Montreal Canadiens, the first of a home-and-home set with their rivals that concludes Saturday at the Bell Centre.
