The Bruins ended up keeping their first round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and selected Jordan Caron from the Rimouski Oceanic (QMJHL). At 6'2" 205 lbs, the right winger already has NHL size. He is a two-way forward with good offensive ability and a solid shot, who likes to play physical. He is admittedly more of a shooter than a playmaker. While he excels in the offensive zone, he is still responsible in his own end and can play on the penalty kill. NHL scouts were very impressed with his attitude and work ethic. He likes to drive to the net and is not afraid to go to the danger areas of the rink. He put up 67 points (36-31-67) in 56 games this season for Rimouski, narrowly recording more points than PIMs (66 PIMs).
Date of Birth: 11/2/90

I should have audio or at the very least transcripts from interviews with Jordan Caron. I owe a huge thank you to Brandon from Defending Big D for taking time out from covering the Stars tonight to help me get some great stuff on the Bruins' first round pick.
