Caron in Boston to stay?
By Luke Lapinski
As we noted earlier in the week, the Boston Bruins are hopeful that some of their top prospects will be able to step in and make a noticeable impact in the 2013-14 campaign. A number of vets have either left or been dealt away already this summer and, while a couple experienced players have been brought in, it would be great if guys like Jordan Caron or Ryan Spooner were able to deliver on their immense potential this season.
Caron, in particular, has been one of the most highly regarded young players in the system since Boston took him in the first round of the 2009 draft (No. 25 overall). And today he signed a one-year contract with club. According to Joe Haggerty of Comcast New England, it's a one-way deal worth $640,000. That means the Bruins could be in position to get very good value from Caron if he does take the next step -- and the "one-way" element means they seem committed to keeping him at the NHL level now.
