KAMLOOPS - Former Blazer and Montreal Canadiens prospect Tim Bozon hit the ice this week as he continues to bounce back from a serious case of bacterial meningitis, treated in part through a medically induced coma.
“Wow great feeling to be back on the ice !!! #firsttime #boyzba,” Bozon posted to Twitter Thursday. “First time back on the ice since the accident! #greatfeeling #sohappy.”
Bozon, who was playing with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League after being traded from the Blazers in October, was hospitalized at the beginning of March. He was placed in a coma and listed in critical condition for a couple weeks. He was slowly woken from the coma then released from hospital at the end of March. He dropped the ceremonial puck at game six of the playoff series between the Ice and the Calgary Hitmen, March 29.
He had 33 goals and 69 points in 63 games last season split between the Kamloops Blazers and Kootenay.
