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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
