Bozak, making his return from a 21-game absence due to a concussion, scored two goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-5 overtime win against the Ducks. Well, that's one heck of a way to welcome yourself back to action. The pivot played only 12:42 in his first game since Feb. 6, but it was plenty enough time for him to contribute. Look for his minutes to return to their normally plentiful level now that he's proven his health.
Bozak (head) will return to the ice Thursday against Anaheim, Mark Masters of TSN reports. Bozak hasn't seen time on the ice since Feb. 6 while dealing with a head injury. It remains unclear whether he'll have a full workload immediately, but the 30-year-old's eventual role on the team will likely mirror his role before the absence where he was able to compile 31 points on 47 outings.
Bozak (head) may return to the lineup Thursday against the Ducks, Mark Masters of TSN reports. Bozak was cleared for contact earlier in the week, suggesting his return date was drawing near. The Maple Leafs continue to suffer from a plethora of injuries among both forwards and defensemen. His return will certainly provide some relief and added offensive support (31 points in 47 games), and he should regain a top-six role and a spot on the power play. Expect another update when he's activated off injured reserve and fit to play.
Bozak (head) has been cleared for contact but will not be ready in time to play on Thursday against Florida, Mark Masters of TSN reports. Bozak has missed the last 18 contests, but is on track to be available soon. When healthy, the center has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season in Toronto, as he's tallied 31 points in 47 outings, including two goals and six helpers with the man advantage. If you're set on using a Maple Leaf in daily lineups, you could certainly do worse than the 29-year-old.
Bozak (head) is still without a timetable for his return, TSN's Mark Masters reports. The Maple Leafs are focused on building for next season, with zero incentive to rush Bozak as he rehabs from a head injury sustained in a game against the Senators on Feb. 6. Bozak's been skating but reportedly isn't 100-percent healthy at this juncture.
