Denver's Bozak to Miss Rest of Regular Season
CHN Staff Report
DENVER Denver sophomore forward Tyler Bozak will be out the remainder of the regular season, it was determined following arthroscopic surgery on Friday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
Bozak injured his left knee in a knee-on-knee collision with Andrew Sackrison during the second period of Denver’s 3-2 win over Minnesota State on Friday, Dec. 12. A precautionary MRI taken on Monday revealed the tear.
"Tyler will miss the Denver Cup and we’ll know more about his status after the surgery on Friday,” Denver coach Gwozdecky had said prior to the surgery.
After, however, Gwozdecky said Bozak will undergo a lengthy rehab and aim for a return in the postseason.
Bozak ranks second for the No. 5 Pioneers (13-5-1, 9-4-1 WCHA) in scoring with 21 points on seven goals and 14 assists. He leads the team with a plus-14 plus/minus rating. Bozak led the Pioneers in scoring last season with 34 points on 16 goals and 18 assists.
Bozak is a Preseason All-CHN Second Team selection this year.
