Observations:

October 2016 - Tim Bozon has been traded by the Montreal Canadiens to the Florida Panthers in exchange for defenseman Jonathan Racine. The second-year pro never really took off with the Habs since being drafted in the third-round of 2012, though a battle with meningitis didn't help/ Bozon has worked hard to overcome obstacles and has a nice skill level and some size, with the right situation and even more work, there is still some hope he can play in the NHL one day. Mike Barrett

March 2015 - On the surface, Bozon's 58 points in 51 games with the WHL's Kootenay Ice would seem disappointing considering he turns 21 soon. However, given his major health problems the fact that he is playing full-time is good news. Regardless, the bout with meningitis severely hampered Bozon's development. If he ever makes the NHL it will not be for a few more years. Eric Daoust

 

October 2014 - Bozon will spend the 2014-15 campaign in the WHL as he has been assigned to Kootenay. Eric Daoust

 

August 2014 - Bozon has returned to the ice, suiting up for six games for France's under-23 team in a tournament held in the Czech Republic. Eric Daoust

 

June 2014 - Bozon is on the road to recovery after a long battle with meningitis. He has his sights set on the Canadiens' prospect development camp in July. Eric Daoust

 

March 2014 - An unfortunate issue has arose in the WHL with the news that Kootenay Ice forward Tim Bozon has been taken to hospital with meningitis. His family has informed the WHL that Tim is in critical condition. Bozon has registered 29 goals and 64 points in 59 games with the Kamloops Blazers and Kootenay Ice. Thoughts are with Tim and his family. Brendan Ross

 

June 2013 - The Canadiens have signed Bozon to a three-year entry-level contract. Eric Daoust

 

February 2013 - Bozon has developed nicely this year. He is an offensive leader on the Kamloops Blazers and his hard-working attitude is infectious. In 55 games he has 74 points and is a plus-30. It is unlikely that Bozon will make the jump to the NHL as a 19 year-old so expect him to be in the WHL for at least one more season. Zenon Herasymiuk

 

April 2012 – Bozon is a small, hardworking forward that has a very good scoring touch. Bozon has an extremely awkward looking stride, but he is very fast and overwhelms the opposition with his wheels. He also has a quick, hard shot that he likes to use frequently. In his rookie season with the Kamloops Blazers he scored 36 goals and 35 assists for 71 points. Bozon will need to pack on a few more pounds to be an even greater offensive risk. Zenon Herasymiuk

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

Solid player that could fill a various number of roles in the NHL. Time will tell if he develops into a scorer or a grinder.
