Gong Show Gear:
90 MPH Slapshot to the face of Jordan Caron in the AHL last week, that the way she goes sometimes eh? GONGSHOW
A.B. According to The Hockey News, “Caron was expected to compete for a roster spot at training camp with Boston, but his shoulder ailment prevented him from doing so.” Now just a few weeks after returning to the Providence Bruins on 1/18/13 he catches this clapper to the face. And while I’m no doctor, it certainly appears like his orbital bone took the brunt of the impact.
No mention of the incident appears on the websites of the Providence or Boston Bruins and no video is available at this time either. Hopefully with the release of this painful picture, we will know more about the severity of the injury soon. Hopefully for Caron and the Bruins, this wont be another set back in an already shortened season.
