The Bruins announced today that they have recalled forward Jordan Caron from the Providence Bruins.
Caron begin the year with the big club and appeared in 20 games posting 7 points (3-4-7) and a +4 rating before being sent down to Providence. At the AHL level, the 20-year-old rookie has 17 points (6-11-17) in 27 games this season.
The moves comes just hours after the Bruins announced that center Marc Savard has been placed on the LTIR for the remainder of the season. The additional cap room created by placing Savard on the LTIR allowed the club to call up Caron to add additional depth to the NHL roster, a luxury that the Bruins have not had this season due to cap constraints.
