Montreal, Quebec, Canada (4E Sports) – After over a four month lay-off due to Neisseria meningitis, Tim Bozon will stage a comeback to competitive hockey when he plays for an under-23 exhibition tournament in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
The 20-year-old prospect was a member of the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League.
Bozon was diagnosed earlier this March after a 4-2 win against the Saskatoon Blades.
On March 28, the left winger was released from the hospital and is working with the Canadiens’ training staff.
Bozon expressed his excitement to get back and play via Twitter.
“glad to join france national team again in less than two weeks! #backplayingames #hockey #beenawhile,” Bozon posted, together with a photo of him in his national team jersey.
The son of former NFL player Philippe Bozon will compete with teams from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland once the U23 France team plays in the tournament.
Bozon scored 105 goals along with 231 points, in 203 WHL games with the Ice and Kamloops Blazers.
