Report: Bruins sign Jordan Caron to one-year contract.

According to Renaud Lavoie, the Bruins have signed fan favorite Jordan Caron to a one-way, one-year deal worth $600,000. Since being drafted 25th overall by the Bruins in 2009, Caron has been the definition of a first round bust. Appearing in 123 regular season games with the Bruins over the span of four seasons, Caron has scored 12 times while adding 16 assists. In nine career playoff games, Caron has just one goal.

Caron’s battle with inconsistency has made him a familiar face in press boxes around the league. After another lackluster season in 2013-14, it was expected that Caron’s tenure in Boston would be over. But with the Bruins in salary cap trouble and in need of forwards, Caron will be back in 2014-15 for his fifth season in Boston.

With a handful of spots open on the Bruins’ roster and a good amount of young, talented forwards chomping at the bit, the leash on Caron could be and should be very short.

When meeting with the media a month ago, General Manager Peter Chiarelli did admit that several teams were calling the Bruins to inquire about Caron. With a cap hit of just $600,000, the 23-year old Caron becomes very affordable. A change of scenery could be exactly what Caron needs to prove he belongs in the National Hockey League.

At 6’ 3” and 204 pounds, Caron has the perfect body for a third or fourth line guy. He’s a big body who has found success when he uses his big frame to get to the net. Caron has shown glimpses of the talent the Bruins saw when they drafted Caron in the first round, but the Sayabec, Quebec Canada native has yet to put to the total package together.

The Bruins obviously see something in Caron that not many others do. Maybe this is the year Caron finally breaks out and shows why the Bruins keep on bringing him back. With that being said, I’m certainly not holding my breath.
