The Tampa Bay Lightning have sent Sebastien Caron, a pair of second-round picks, and a third-round selection to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Kyle Wilson, Anders Lindback, and a seventh-round draft pick.
The centerpiece of this deal from the Predators perspective is the picks rather than Caron. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and it wouldn't be surprising if Nashville simply let him walk. Fri, Jun 15, 2012 04:25:00 PM

Sebastien Caron will probably get his first start with the Lightning shortly, with the team set to open the week with back-to-back games.

Tampa Bay plays in Philadelphia on Monday and at Boston on Tuesday, so Caron will face a stiff test no matter which team he matches up against. He is hoping to use the remainder of the regular season as a tryout to earn a contract for next year.

Sebastien Caron practiced with the Lightning on Tuesday after clearing waivers.

Caron was signed to a one-year deal by Tampa Bay on Monday. The goalie was playing in the Germany. Before a player in Europe can join an NHL club in-season, that player must clear waivers. With Dustin Tokarski assigned to Norfolk and Mathieu Garon injured, Caron and Dwayne Roloson are Tampa Bay’s active goalies.

Sebastien Caron has officially agreed to a one-year, one-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning were forced to place Caron on waivers before he can play with them. They will find out if he cleared Tuesday afternoon. He has a 3.45 GAA and .892 save percentage in 92 career NHL games and hasn't played with an NHL squad since 2006-07.

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Sebastien Caron to a pro-rated $500,000, one-year contract.

Caron, who has not played in the NHL since 2006-07, had been playing in the Swedish Elite League. Assuming he clears waivers, Caron might play in Friday's game against Montreal as the Flyers desperately try to find a solution to their goaltending woes. Brian Boucher left plenty to be desired in Philadelphia's 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday. Because Caron was signed after the March 3rd trade deadline, he is not eligible to participate in the postseason.

The Anaheim Mighty Ducks have sent goaltender Sebastien Caron back to the minors.

He was acquired in late December with the injuries at the time to both Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Ilya Bryzgalov, but both are now healthy and Caron has been sent to Portland of the AHL. He has no fantasy value.
