Montreal Prospect Bozon Released From Hospital


Tim Bozon, the Montreal prospect that had been placed in a medically-induced coma following a meningitis diagnosis, was released from Saskatoons Royal University Hospital on Friday.

Bozons father, Philippe, is a former NHL player that spent four seasons with St. Louis in the early 90s. He said his sons recovery was amazing considering Tim spent most of the past month in intensive care, including several days in the aforementioned coma, designed to reduce swelling around his brain.

As for the future, Dr. Gary Hunter said he has high hopes for Bozon the 64th overall pick at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft resuming his playing career.

Its very difficult to speculate exactly on his long-term neurological prognosis but his early progress has been so tremendous and hes such a healthy guy that Im very optimistic about that [playing hockey again].
