Sebastien Caron from the Iserlohn Roosters in the DEL will be returning to the NHL. This time….with Tampa.
Not much is known yet, but the Iserlohn Roosters website says that Caron will be heading to the Lightning, as his team has been eliminated from the DEL playoffs. An official announcement is expected on Monday.
Caron was a fourth-round pick in 1999 and is a butterfly goaltender best 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 byWashington Capitals defenseman Ivan Majesky. He started the season as backup to Jocelyn Thibault and ended it as back-up to Marc-Andre Fleury.
