Bruins rookie forward Caron recalled to Boston

By JoeHaggerty
BOSTON The Bruins' first move in the wake of the news that Marc Savard was finished for the season was to bring back a familiar face.After breaking training camp as a member of the Bruins and showing promise during his time in Boston, Jordan Caron was recalled to the Bruins on Monday night for a second go-round with the Bs.Caron will be with the team at Ristuccia Arena for practice on Tuesday morning. The 20-year-old appeared in 20 games with the Bruins and managed 3 goals and 4 assists before he was assigned to the Providence Bruins on Dec. 6 amid a numbers issue on the Boston roster following Marc Savards activation.Bostons 2009 first-round pick, Caron has shown the versatility to play the wing up and down several different lines and was a key member of the Bs penalty kill unit earlier in the season. Caron put up 6 goals and 11 assists in 27 games for the P-Bruins in Providence in the first taste of AHL action in his career.The promotion of both Caron and Zach Hamill could also spell some competition for a starting spot with Tyler Seguin in the game-day lineups. Seguin isnt as good a fit in a fourth-line role as the gritty Caron has proven to be, and it appears the Bruins want to give Hamill a shot as one of the top three centers before trade options are pursued.

Tuesday, Jan. 17: Hershey Star Wars jerseys raise big bucks

Here are all the links from around the hockey world and what I’m reading, while feeling like Felicity Jones could have been a little better on SNL last weekend. It didn’t feel like it was the right platform for her and she was just straight reading the cue cards in her monologue.  

*Congrats to the Hershey Bears, who raised over $42,000 for charity with their Empire-inspired Star Wars jerseys from last weekend.

*When Bruins winger Brad Marchand begins to score his value goes way, way up, according to TSN stat maven Scott Cullen.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mike Harrington wants the Buffalo Sabres to get into “attack mode” rather than the passive mode they’ve been in for some time.

*A discussion about the NHL trade deadline and which players are likely to get moved still weeks and weeks away from that deadline.

*The Winnipeg Jets are searching for answers after another loss, and have called upon Ondrej Pavelec in a move of desperation.

*Funny commercial with Brent Burns and Joe Thornton, who have to be the ultimate bosom, bearded buddies in the NHL.

*For something completely different: as the next Lando, Donald Glover understands why the character is vital to the Star Wars universe.
