Sébastien Caron (born June 25, 1980 in Amqui, Quebec) is a professional ice hockey goaltender for Fribourg-Gottéron in Switzerland's Nationalliga A.



Caron was a fourth-round pick in 1999 and is a butterfly goaltender most well 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. He started the season as back-up to Jocelyn Thibault and ended it as back-up to Marc-Andre Fleury.

During the 2007 playoffs, Caron served as a spare goaltender for the Anaheim Ducks. He was not called on to dress during the playoffs. Caron was included on the Stanley Cup winning picture, and has a Stanley Cup ring; however, because he only played one regular season game, he did not qualify to have his name engraved on the Stanley Cup.

Caron has a young son, Andrew, who was born premature and almost did not survive.
