Jordan Caron Recalled to Bruins as Chris Bourque Clears Waivers En Route to Providence

Jordan CaronThe Bruins didn’t exactly make a trade on Friday, but it appears they’ve swapped a pair of forwards between Boston and Providence.

According to a team statement, Jordan Caron has been recalled to the Bruins’ NHL squad, while Chris Bourque has cleared waivers and will be joining the AHL’s Providence Bruins. Caron skated with the Bruins at Ristuccia Arena during practice Friday.

Bourque was waived by the B’s on Thursday after posting 1-3-4 totals and a minus-6 rating in 18 games played.

Caron had a cup of coffee in the NHL last season, totaling seven goals and eight assists in 48 games played. The team’s first-round pick in the 2009 draft, the 22-year-old has 10 goals and five assists through 48 games with the P-Bruins this year.
