Um. What. Caron’s not even doing good in Providence. He’s just netted his tenth goal for the PBruins for this SEASON with only five assists in 44 games. If they didn’t want to go back with Tardif or Spooner there was always Camper, Cunningham, Hanson, or MacKinnon. Maybe they’ll keep Pandolfo in for now.
They wanted Caron originally this season instead of Bourque. But even last season Caron wasn’t spectacular when he came up to play. They definitely needed to make a change on that third line, so I hope it works out, but I’m not exactly enthusiastic over here.

BOSTON (CBS) — On Thursday, the Bruins placed Chris Bourque on waivers with the intention of sending him to the AHL. On Friday, they’ve called up his replacement.
The Bruins recalled forward Jordan Caron from Providence. The Providence Journal’s Mark Divver (via Twitter) was first to report the news.
Caron, still just 22 years old, has 71 games of NHL experience. He scored three goals and had four assists in 23 games in 2010-11, and he posted 7-8-15 totals in 48 games last season.
