Bruins re-sign Caron: one year, $640,000

The Boston Bruins have re-upped with restricted free agent Jordan Caron on a one-year, $640,000 deal, according to CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty.

Caron, 22, was Boston’s first-round pick (25th overall) at the 2009 Entry Draft, but has yet to emerge as a full-time contributor at the NHL level.

His best season came in 2011-12, when he posted career highs across the board — games (48), goals (seven), points (15) — making his postseason debut in the process.

This year, though, Caron appeared to take a step back.

He dressed for just 17 regular-season contests, scoring once, and didn’t play a single game for the Bruins in the playoffs.

As such, Caron took a sizable pay cut — he was making $1.1 million annually on his entry-level contract — and it looks as though GM Peter Chiarelli engineer a “prove-it” deal with Caron, much like he did with Tuukka Rask.

Rask, you’ll recall, was signed last summer to a one-year, $3.5 million extension, designed for him to show the Bruins he was capable of being the club’s full-time No. 1 netminder.

The Finn did that and more, backstopping the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Final. His reward? An eight-year, $56 million contract signed last week.
