Jordan Caron Railroaded by Colten Teubert


Wow, that was a big hit, and for those of you wondering the name of the freight train is Colten Teubert, a 6′ 4” 200 pound defenseman property of the Los Angeles Kings. The victim, Boston Bruins first round pick Jordan Caron. Caron suffered a broken collar bone from this hit and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, including the Bruins rookie camp in Kitchener Ontario. The one thing that kind of gets me is the way Teubert handles the interview after, as though it wasn’t that big of a deal and he’ll pat Caron on the back and apologize. I guess that’s what makes hockey so sweet, keep your head up and you won’t be taking inventory of your teeth.

Some people are calling the hit dirty, but clearly Caron had his head down, and was primed up for Teubert to tee-off. My only question is why is this happening in the tryout camp for the World Junior Championships. I realize it is a tryout, but that was a big hit. Zack Kassian also seemed to have an interesting take on the situation saying he would have gone after Teubert for the hit, but didn’t due to the circumstances. Either way, I give Caron credit for getting up after that hit. I would have probably laid on the ice hoping my dignity would have found its way to the bench.

Boston.com has the entire story:

Only some six weeks after being selected in the first round of the draft by the Bruins, winger Jordan Caron sustained a fractured collarbone last week while trying out for Canada’s entry in the World Junior Championships, prompting Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli today to label Caron ”doubtful” for Boston’s upcoming rookie camp in Kitchener, Ont.

”It doesn’t appear to be a [bad] fracture,” Chiarelli said today, speaking by phone from his office at the TD Garden. ”We expect that it will be a 4-6 week recovery. I don’t know the full extent of it yet, but given the standard 4-6 weeks for this kind of injury, and the start date for rookie camp, I would say he is doubtful.”

The Bruins, Senators, Leafs and Penguins will convene in Kitchener, Ont., for rookie camp Sept. 6-10.

According to numerous news accounts, the 18-year-old Caron was leveled by a hit from fellow Canadian Colten Teubert during an intrasqaud scrimmage. Teubert, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound defenseman, was chosen 13th overall by the LA Kings in the NHL’s 2008 amateur draft. Caron, 6-2 and 205 pounds, was selected 25th ovearall by the Bruins this June 26.

”I haven’t seen the video of the hit,” said Chiarelli. ”A couple of guys told me it was dirty and a couple of others said it was suspect, and without seeing it I really can’t say. Teubert’s a big, aggressive defenseman, and from what I’ve been told Caron was looking over his shoulder for a pass and got hit kind of blindsided.”

Chiarelli said Don Sweeney, Boston’s director of hockey operations and player development, had spoken to Caron and that right winger was in good spirits.

Caron was among 24 players the Bruins intend to bring to Kitchener, leaving Chiarelli to surmise that the club will extend an invite to another hopeful to fill out the roster. Boston’s full training camp, to be staged this year as always in Wilmington, will open Sept. 12, which would be just about the time Caron would be expected to be fully healed.
