Kootenay forward Tim Bozon out of hospital a month after meningitis diagnosis

SASKATOON - Kootenay Ice forward Tim Bozon was released from the hospital Friday a month after falling ill with meningitis.

Bozon, who was in a medically induced coma for most of his hospital stay, says staff at Saskatoon's Royal University Hospital went to "amazing lengths" to save his life.

Doctors say Bozon is expected to make a full recovery but is likely facing months of rehabilitation.

The 19-year-old Montreal Canadiens prospect is expected to drop the puck at Game 6 of Kootenay's playoff series against the Calgary Hitmen on Saturday in Cranbrook.

Bozon scored 30 goals and had 32 assists and 34 penalty minutes in 50 games this season with the Ice.

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
