  • Nashville Lands Caron in Trade

    News: Sebastien Caron was dealt along with a pair of second-round picks and a third-round pick to the Predators on Friday, the Globe and Mail's James Mirtle reports.
    Analysis: The Lightning received Kyle Wilson, Andres Lindback and a seventh-round draft pick in return. Sebastien Caron is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, so Nashville likely had their eyes on the second round picks over the 32-year old goalie.
  • Bolts' Caron Lit Up

    News: Sebastien Caron, making just his second NHL start of the year, allowed five goals on 25 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Canadiens.
    Analysis: He'd actually looked good in limited exposure in the approximately 75 minutes of NHL hockey he'd played for the Bolts before this one, but Sebastien Caron is a middling goalie and a victim of circumstance behind the less-than-responsible Tampa defense.
  • Caron Likely Starter For Lightning Wednesday

    News: Sebastien Caron was the first goalie off the ice at Wednesday's morning skate, suggesting that he will start the Lightning's evening game against Montreal, the team's official site reports.,
    Analysis: Sebastien Caron is an option if you are digging deep for a stretch-run goalie filler, but Wednesday's outing will be just his second start of the season, so temper your expectations.
  • Lightning's Caron Returns To NHL With A Win

    News: In his first NHL start since playing with the Blackhawks in 2006-2007, Sebastien Caron turned away 26 of Winnipeg's 28 shots on net Saturday. The Lightning went on to win the contest in overtime.
    Analysis: Though a net-minder adjusting to the pace of the NHL so quickly after taking his reps in Germany for the past five seasons is certainly impressive, Sebastien Caron should in no way be employed on any fantasy roster at this stage in the game.
  • Lightning To Start Caron Between Pipes Saturday Vs. Jets

    News: Sebastien Caron is expected to start Saturday against Winnipeg, according to Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Times.
    Analysis: This will be Sebastien Caron's first NHL start since 2006-07 following several seasons playing overseas. This year with the Iserlohn Roosters of the DEL (German Ice Hockey League), Caron was 25-23-0 with a .932 save percentage and 2.57 GAA. It will be interesting to see how long it takes him to re-acclimate himself to the more demanding NHL style of play.
  • Bolts To Start Caron Monday Or Tuesday?

    News: Sebastien Caron may start one of the Lightning's back-to-back games at the beginning of next week, reports Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Times.
    Analysis: It's a tough straw to pull either way -- Philly on Monday or Boston on Tuesday. Sebastien Caron has not played in the NHL in five years and adrenaline will make or break him. Either way, he's not really a viable fantasy option unless you're really pained between the pipes. Really pained.

    News: Ducks G Sebastien Caron, who appeared in just one game for the Ducks after being recalled from American League affiliate Portland, Maine, on Dec. 30, was reassigned to the Pirates on Thursday.

  • Caron replaces Ilya Bryzgalov
