Bourque Clears Waivers, Caron Called Up from Providence

 

No one clamied Chris Bourque so he's on his way down to Providence. This chapter of the Bourque Experiment is done but doesn't mean we won't see Raymondson in Boston in the future. Julien laments the decision to waive Bourque, according to CSNNE:

 

“This is not a coach’s decision. This is an organizational decision,” said Claude Julien. “It wasn’t an easy one because we know the type of person Chris is, and he’s a great player.

“Just because right now we’re waiving him, we’re hoping not to lose him. His team here [in Boston] isn’t over. He took a little bit of time to find his game and it was coming around a bit. He also knows that his last game wasn’t his best one. When you look at what he did in Providence you can’t count him off your lineup here. Right now it could just be a bump along the way. Certainly if we need a guy called up I’d have no issues about seeing him back up here.”

To fill the third line winger void, the Bruins also called up Jordan Caron from Providence.

In 71 games with the Bruins, Caron has notched 10 goals and 12 assists and is a +3. He's not doing so hot in Providence this year, though. He has 15 points in 40 games with the Baby Bs. Oof. He also had an upper-body injury during the Bs shortened training camp after the lock out.

From Boston.com:

After Chris Bourque was placed on waivers, Caron was in line to audition for the No. 3 left wing job. Caron scored a goal in each of Providence’s last two games. When playing at his best, Caron is a big, two-way winger. 

Gotta wonder if this is the Bruins giving Caron legit shot at the third line winger spot or if they're just showcasing him. Sounds like a lot of people think Caron's being showecased and his time in Boston is running out. And with news that Carl Soderberg wants to join the Bruins after his SEL Playoffs are over, that sounds a little bit more likely.
