Jordan Caron meets Colton Teubert

Sad news out of the Canada World Junior tryout last week via Fluto

First round pick Jordan Caron got smashed by '08 first rounder Colton Teubert and broke his collarbone. In '08 I was rooting for Colton to drop to the B's against all odds but luck was not on my side. Kid is a Chris Pronger clone. Gist of Fluto's story is that Caron will be out for about 4-6 weeks.

ANALYSIS-Caron was going to be returned to Rimouski for '09-'10 anyways so it doesn't affect this season really at all. Caron won't play for the B's rookies in Kitchener this fall which is too bad because I was excited to see play since he's supposedly Blake Wheeler only with an edge. Should be ready for training camp with the big boys, good experience for him although his chances of making the big club are very close to zero.

Good indication of the kind of competition that can be seen at these tryouts. Obviously another example for Paul Kelly to point to when telling NHL players to not participate slash insure themselves when they are heading to Olympic camps.

Since you asked. Yes I think Kaner should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law if this story about him and the cabby is true. What a dumbass.
