Nick Johnson is on his way down to Providence (if not picked up by waivers) and Jordan Caron has made the Bruins squad as the 13th forward… amazingly.
Nick Johnson placed on waivers by Bruins, which means Jordan Caron has made the Bruins as the 13th forward #BruinsTalk

Caron has a craptastic one-way contract (least it's for one year), so gotta think this is his last chance to show he belongs in the NHL. Alas, he hasn't shown any growth or development of his game over the past few years. He's had a few good games, but has been pretty lackluster for the most part. AHL Lifer in the making.
Johnson had about four goals this preseason; Caron had one point.
Greg predicted Caron would start with the team in DOY Live, but we don't expect him to finish the season with the Bruins.
