Canadiens prospect Tim Bozon will be released from Saskatoon hospital on Friday according to his Western Hockey League team, the Kootenay Ice. Bozon was hospitalized on March first after coming down with life threatening bacterial Meningitis. At one point in his treatment he was put under an induced coma and was listed in critical condition. Doctors began to slowly bring him out of the coma last week and changed the designation of his condition as “critical but stable”.
Bozon is expected to drop the ceremonial puck at Game 6 of Kootenay’s playoff series against the Calgary Hitmen Saturday in Cranbrook. His hockey future is still unclear.
Bozon scored 30 goals and had 32 assists and 34 penalty minutes in 50 games this season with the Ice after being traded early in the season by the Kamloops Blazers. He was selected in the third round of the 2012 NHL entry draft by the Canadiens.
