Habs Prospect Bozon Sent Up To Brampton

Alex Galchenyuk & Tim Bozon

Montreal Canadiens’ prospect Tim Bozon will now be heading to Ontario, where he will play for the ECHL’s Brampton Beast, an affiliate of the St. John’s IceCaps.

The Beast announced today that the 21 year old left-winger has been reassigned from the St. John’s IceCaps and will report to Brampton. There wasn’t any information released as to why he was sent up from Newfoundland, but it’s a possibility that he still needs to work on his defensive and offensive play in order to land a top-six role.

Bozon had his best season during his 63 WHL games back in 2012-13 with the Kamloops Blazers, where he grabbed 91 points (36 goals, 55 assists). Bozon also picked up 63 points with the WHL’s Kootenay Ice during the 2014-15 season before being sent to the Hamilton Bulldogs. He is a four time 30 goal scorer who has an excellent combination of a quick release and hard wrist shot, as well as pulling a Brendan Gallagher and driving the net in order to fool the goaltender. A big surprise from him, however, was how quickly he recovered after spending four weeks in hospital last March recovering from a bout of meningitis that nearly cost him his life. Bozon was also able to take part in the Habs’ development camp this summer, weighing 207 pounds.

You can see Bozon play with the Beast at the Powerade Centre in Brampton this weekend as they host the Kalamazoo Wings on November 15 at 2:00PM. You can buy your tickets HERE.

    Jessica-Lyn may have an encyclopedic knowledge of tea, but apparently failed geography. Thanks anyway for the update on Tim.

    Hello, Wayne. I’m curious as to how I “failed geography,” considering the Brampton Beast is in fact located in Brampton, Ontario. Have a nice day though!

    Hey Jessica – Mr. McCrae is retired and has LOTS of time on his hands. Although he’s technically right about Brampton being lower (geographically) than St. John’s, I honestly say “going up to Ontario” when chatting with friends… That said, I’d say the same thing when referring to any city in Ontario (despite being “higher geographically” than Brampton). Also, I doubt that most people would question you on this, nor would they actually slap a map in your face like Mr. McCrae did on Twitter. You can’t win with this 1% of the population, which is why I never bother replying… Wow! I’ve spent way too much time on this reply… Great job on getting the news out 🙂

    You should have said “sent down”, because it’s a lower level of play…

    The “up” / “down” debate is geography related… Jessica never meant it in a “promotion / demotion” way. See my reply above. Either way, we should be focusing on the message – which is about Bozon joining the Beast!
