Bruins sign Jordan Caron to one-year contract worth $640K

Jim Rogash

Prove yourself, Jordan Caron. Prove that you were worth the first round pick spent on you in 2009. That's what this deal says, and it's fairly effective. No one's going to offer sheet an underperforming third liner like Caron; so he'll get paid less than a fourth-line face-puncher in an effort to motivate him to take his game to the next level.

As mybruinsoface pointed out in his report card, Caron had three points (one goal, two assists) in 17 NHL games this season, and saw no time in playoffs. If necessary, he can be sent to the minors (after clearing waivers) and still not cause the Bruins too much cap trouble.

This is a solid low-risk deal, and it'll be interesting to see if Caron can bring his level of play up enough to warrant a better, lengthier contract next summer.
