The Leafs have signed their second highly touted NCAA forward in less than a week, inking Tyler Bozak to an entry level contract today. The native of Regina, Saskathewan and product of the University of Denver Pioneers had 23 points in 19 games this past season.
“He’s described by many in hockey circles as a strong two-way centre that possesses good speed and is a key face-off man on both the power-play and penalty kill.”
“We tried to make lots of contact. It’s disappointing when you put in a lot of effort and you don’t get a guy. We certainly offered him a pretty good opportunity.”
