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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
