Caron played for the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in 2005-2006 prior to being drafted by the Rimouski Océanic in the first round, eighth overall in the 2006 QMJHL Draft. In his rookie season with the team, Caron finished fifth in team scoring, earning 40 points in 56 games, and led Rimouski with a +11 rating.
In his second year in Rimouski, Caron would miss some time due to injuries, appearing in only 46 games, however, he would improve on his point total from the previous year, scoring 20 goals and adding 23 assists for 43 points, helping the Océanic make the playoffs. Caron added four points in nine post-season games.
In 2008-09, Caron would once again improve with his numbers, appearing in 56 games, scoring a team high 36 goals, while earning 67 points, third highest on the club. In the playoffs, Caron earned 11 points in 13 games. Since Rimouski was hosting the 2009 Memorial Cup, the team had an automatic berth in the tournament. In four games, Caron scored two goals, as Rimouski was eliminated after losing to the Windsor Spitfires in the tie-breaking game.
Caron began the 2009–10 season with Rimouski, where in 20 games, he had nine goals and 20 points. At the trade deadline, Caron was traded along with teammate Patrice Cormier to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. Caron finished the season with Huskies, where in 23 games, he scored 17 goals and 33 points. Caron then added seven goals and 18 points in 11 playoff games for Rouyn-Noranda.
Caron signed with the Boston Bruins on March 31, 2010. He started the 2010–11 NHL season in the Bruins starting lineup. He scored his first NHL goal on October 16, 2010 against Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils. When Boston won the Stanley Cup in 2011, Caron received a Stanley Cup ring and was included in the team picture, although did not meet the requirement to have his named engraved on the Trophy.
On July 16, 2014, Caron re-signed for his fifth season within the Bruins organization on a one-year deal. At the beginning of the 2014–15 season, despite making the Bruins opening night roster, Caron was placed waivers on October 4, 2014. Going unclaimed, Caron was later reassigned to Bruins AHL affiliate in Providence. Caron maintained his scoring touch in the AHL and appeared in 11 games over two call-ups with the Bruins before March 2, 2015, when he was traded along with a sixth round selection in 2016 to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Maxime Talbot and Paul Carey. Caron made his debut with the Avalanche on March 4, 2015, in a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Initially promoted to play on the top scoring lines, Caron was unable to produce and endured a diminishing role to end the season, going scoreless in 19 games with the Avalanche. As an impending restricted free agent, Caron was not tendered a new contract by Colorado, releasing him to free agency.
On July 2, 2015, Caron signed a one-year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues.
Caron played for Team Canada during the 2010 World Junior Championships in Saskatchewan, Canada. He won a silver medal with the team while scoring four assists.
