The Boston Bruins have assigned forward Jordan Caron to Providence, the team announced late Friday.
The 21-year old Caron has played in 13 games for the Bruins this season, but hasn't seen any game action with Boston since Nov. 15. The right wing has one goal and two assists this season with Boston.
Moving to Providence will provide Caron with more ice time to aid his development. This is the third time Caron has been assigned to Providence in December. After Caron's previous assignments in Providence, both Caron and coach Claude Julien have spoken about the benefit of receiving playing time.
"I think those two games he played in Providence helped him," Julien said of one of Caron's stints in Providence earlier this December.
In five games with Providence this season, Caron has one goal and four assists.
