WHL player critical with Meningitis

The Western Hockey League and the Kootenay Ice hockey club today provided an update on Kootenay Ice player and Montreal Canadiens prospect Tim Bozon.

Tim Bozon was admitted to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon on Saturday, March 1 and has been diagnosed with Neisseria Meningitis. 

Tim’s parents, Phillippe and Helene Bozon, have been with him at the hospital in Saskatoon since arriving on Sunday from their home in Cureglia, Switzerland. The family has indicated to the WHL that Tim’s condition is critical.

Public health officials are in the process of reviewing the case to ensure all the necessary precautions are taken and anyone who had direct contact with the player receives appropriate treatment.

The WHL requests the privacy of the family be respected during this most difficult time.

Bozon, 19, was acquired from the Kamloops Blazers earlier this season.

In 50 games with the Ice, Bozon has 30 goals and 32 assists.

In three seasons with Kamloops and Kootenay Bozon has 105 goals and 231 points in 203 games.
