Jordan Caron was selected in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He was selected twenty-fifth overall. He was playing for Rimouski Océanic of the  Quebec Major Junior Hockey League(QMJHL). He was selected to be another big power forward for the Bruins and their aggressive play style.  The Bruins liked him because of his desire to win battles and how he worked for space on the ice.

Caron’s first season as a Bruins’ prospect started rocky, with him getting injured at the World Junior summer camp. It limited his play to only forty three games. However, in that abbreviated season his numbers were explosive. He racked up twenty six goals and twenty seven assists.   He had eighteen additional points in his eleven playoff games for his new QMJHL team, the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. His on-ice maturity improved as well. His PIM dropped from sixty six minutes to twenty four . His plus/minus, was +14 when the Bruins selected him, had also shot up to + 25. It looked like Jordan Caron was ready for the big game.

Caron signed with the Boston Bruins on March 31, 2010. His skills in development camp earned him a slot  in the Bruins starting lineup.  He scored his first NHL goal on October 16, 2010 against Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils. Jordan spent the season moving up and down between Boston and its AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins. He put up three goals and four assists for Boston, and twelve golas and sixteen assists for Providence. He did not play in the 2011 Stanley Cup Championships.  Due to the limited amount of games played in Boston, he was not eligible to have his name placed on the Stanley Cup, but he did qualify for a ring.

The 2011-2012 season found Caron as a full time Bruin.
