Biography[edit | edit source]
Caron was a fourth-round pick in 1999 and is a butterfly goaltender most well known for his great save from Brian Savage against the Philadelphia Flyers. This save came early in the 2005–2006 season with his former team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. The puck went off the left goal post. Savage then tried to tip the puck in the goal but Caron quickly scooped the puck up with his glove almost on the goal line. Caron was also known for allowing a 170 foot shot by Washington Capitals defenseman Ivan Majesky. He started the season as backup to Jocelyn Thibault and ended it as back-up to Marc-Andre Fleury.
During the 2007 playoffs, Caron served as a spare goaltender for the Anaheim Ducks. He was not called on to dress during the playoffs. Caron was included on the Stanley Cup winning picture, and has a Stanley Cup ring; however, because he only played one regular season game, he did not qualify to have his name engraved on the Stanley Cup. On April 1, 2010, Caron was signed by the Philadelphia Flyers. He was the seventh goaltender acquired the Flyers' for the 2009-2010 NHL season. Caron was never in net for Philadelphia during his short visit.
On August 23, 2010, Caron was signed by Traktor Chelyabinsk.
