Montreal Canadiens prospect Tim Bozon's condition 'improving'

The Saskatoon Health Region says the condition of a Kootenay Ice hockey player in a Saskatoon hospital "remains critical but stable and improving."

Tim Bozon was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Saskatoon's Royal University Hospital on March 1 with Neisseria Meningitis.

The health region said the Montreal Canadiens prospect has been in a coma but doctors are now working to slowly wake him. The WHL player's family said he's responded to verbal stimuli. 

More to come.
