Blazers Deal Caron

As reported earlier on our post-game show tonight following the Blazers 4-3 win in Victoria, the Blazers have dealt Josh Caron for a 4th round bantam pick in 2014.

Here's the news release:


Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers announced Tuesday evening that they have sent 20-year-old defenseman Josh Caron to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a 4th round draft pick.

Caron spent three and a half seasons with the Blazers and played 128 games. He racked up 375 penalty minutes in that time.
“With eight defensemen on the roster, we felt the need to give more ice time to our younger defensemen,” General Manager Craig Bonner said. “We’d also like to thank Josh for his time as a Blazer and wish him the best of luck.”

The Kamloops Blazers are back on home ice this weekend as they host the Prince George Cougars on Friday night and Victoria Royals on Saturday. Friday night is the annual Teddy Bear / Toque Toss. For tickets, call the Box Office

toughness is going to be needed down the stretch and hopefully they dont regret the decision. The team could have kept him and used him sparingly but the class of the organization shows that they would like to see him improve and master his skills elsewhere. If only he could have learned to not get that stupid 2 min or 4 min penalties and let the guys come after him. He is a proven tough guy and doesnt need to go find it. Good luck in everett and to the blazers
