Canadiens prospect Tim Bozon has been moved out of the Saskatoon Royal University Hospital intensive care unit and his condition has been upgraded to ‘stable’ following a battle against life-threatening bacterial Meningitis.
In an update Wednesday, the Saskatoon Health Region stated that Bozon’s condition is improving and he has been moved into one of the Royal University Hospital wards.
Bozon was admitted to hospital March first with lthe disease and was placed in a medically induced coma. Last week, his condition was listed as critical but stable and improving as doctors slowly began the process of bringing him out of the coma.
Bozon’s parents said he is now awake, moving around, trying to feed himself and speak.
Bozon, who was drafted in the third round of the 2012 NHL entry draft, fell ill following a game Feb. 28 against the Saskatoon Blades.
The WHL has established a trust fund to assist Bozon and his family with medical and rehabilitation costs.
