Forward Tim Bozon was traded to the Florida Panthers by the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Jonathan Racine on Saturday.
Bozon, 22, was diagnosed with Neisseria meningitis in March 2014, a rare and potentially fatal bacterial form of the disease. He spent two weeks in a coma in a hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and recovered to play 57 games in 2014-15 with Kootenay of the Western Hockey League.
Last season, his first as a professional, Bozon had five goals and eight points in 41 games with St. John's of the American Hockey League. The Canadiens selected Bozon in the third-round (No. 64) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
Racine, 23, had one goal and nine points in 69 games with Portland of the American Hockey League last season. A third-round pick (No. 87) in the 2011 NHL Draft, he played one NHL game with the Panthers during the 2013-14 season.
