Tyler Bozak's days in Toronto may be numbered.
The 29-year-old Bozak is entering the third year of his five-year, $21M deal which dings the cap at $4.2M per season. Bozak however is reaching the height of his salary, $5M in 2015-16 before dropping by half a million dollars the next two seasons. He also owns a partial No-Trade Clause in which he can submit a list of 12 teams he can be traded to. Bozak is coming off a career year in which he set a new high in goals with 23, and matched his high in points of 49 for the second straight year. For what it's worth, only New Jersey, Arizona, and Nashville currently sit under the cap floor. Jul 5 - 8:35 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs tried trading center Tyler Bozak during the NHL Draft.

The Leafs didn't find any takers for Bozak at their asking price, and now Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman is reporting that there is a good chance that Bozak will start the 2015-16 on Toronto's roster. The 29-year-old had 23 goals and 49 points in 82 games last season.

Tyler Bozak earned a pair of assists in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Buffalo.

He had helpers on goals by Eric Brewer and James van Riemsdyk to give the Leafs a 2-1 lead at the time. Bozak was on pace for a much better season before Toronto's incredible slump, but he could still end up with a new personal best in points. He is two away from matching his career high of 49, which he set in 2013-14.
Apr 2 - 10:45 AM

Tyler Bozak broke out for three goals and an assist in the Maple Leafs’ 4-3 overtime win against the Senators on Saturday night.

Bozak had last scored March 11 and had two goals (and two points) in March. Toronto erased a 3-1 third-period deficit in this one, with Bozak scoring three in the third to tie it up. Bozak has 22 goals and 45 points in 76 games this season, so even though he’s finally been healthy he hasn’t exactly produced at a high clip. Eric Brewer scored the other goal, while Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk chipped in with three assists apiece.

Tyler Bozak amassed 24 minutes in penalties on Monday night.

He was assessed a tripping penalty on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins late in the third period. Bozak didn't like the call and he received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty along with a 10-minute misconduct and game misconduct. It's been a frustrating season for the Maple Leafs and it boiled over a bit for Bozak. He only has 40 minutes in the sin bin this season.
Mar 17 - 10:31 AM

Toronto center Tyler Bozak scored a power-play goal at 16:35 of the third period to tie Buffalo 3-3 in a Wednesday night game that the Maple Leafs ultimately won 4-3 in a shootout.

Bozak also scored in the shootout in Toronto and the Maple Leafs ended a three-game losing streak. The Sabres have lost five in a row. The Leafs also got goals from Brandon Kozun, his second of the season, and Leo Komarov, his seventh. Bozak's game-tying goal was his 19th of the season. The Leafs are now 27-35-6.
Mar 11 - 10:27 PM

Leafs coach Peter Horachek doesn't seem interested in breaking up Toronto's top line for the sake of experimentation.

For now it looks like Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak, and James van Riemsdyk will stick together. "We've experimented with that all year long," Horachek said. "That's always a possibility, but right now they have to put it on themselves. They have a chemistry there. I think right now it's better for them to stay together. That's not to say I won’t change it up, but for the last little while it’s looking for a little bit of consistency and getting used to who you are playing with." That's good news for Bozak, who is the most likely to take a hit from a fantasy perspective if that line was broken up.

Tyler Bozak generated a goal and an assist in Toronto's 3-2 win versus Philadelphia.

He has 17 goals and 39 points in 61 games this campaign. Bozak had a great start to the year, but he struggled to produce during Toronto's descent down the standings.
Feb 27 - 11:05 AM

Tyler Bozak is drawing interest from around the league, according to Sportsnet’s Damien Cox.

The Maple Leafs have seemingly put everyone on the trade block, and now it’s up to the front office to determine the best course of action as they look to remold this team. Bozak has 15 goals and 36 points this season.
Feb 14 - 9:20 PM

Tyler Bozak is on the list of Toronto players who could be dealt prior to the NHL trade deadline.

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Bozak despite the fact he has three years left on his contract with a $4.2 million cap hit per season. Bozak could yield a fair return if there is a team out there that sees him as a strong number two center. Stay tuned.
Feb 14 - 12:28 PM

Tyler Bozak scored the Maple Leafs' only goal in a 4-1 loss in New Jersey Friday night as the lamentable Toronto team set a franchise record for most consecutive losses.

The Leafs have now lost 11 consecutive games, erasing the dubious record they set in 1966-67. After losing 10 in a row, that Toronto team rebounded that season with a 10-game unbeaten streak (eight wins, two ties) and eventually won the Stanley Cup, the last time the Leafs won the NHL championship. Such a turnaround, however, seems more than a trifle unlikely this season. The Leafs have deteriorated woefully and are serious longshots to make the playoffs. Interim coach Peter Horachek is 1-10-1 since taking over for Randy Carlyle, who was fired. The one victory under Horachek came against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 9. The Leafs have lost 25 of 31 games this season when they have allowed the first goal (6-22-3). They have scored one or fewer goals in nine of their past 11 games. Bozak's goal was his 15th of the season but first in 11 games. With the Leafs trailing 3-0, Bozak scored on a power play at 11:51 of the third period.

Tyler Bozak was absent from practice on Thursday because of a death in his family.

However, he is expected to play Friday night against the Minnesota Wild. We extend our sincere condolences to Tyler and his family for their loss.
Jan 2 - 9:53 AM

Tyler Bozak recorded a goal and an assist in Toronto's 6-2 win over Anaheim on Tuesday.

The Leafs' top line of Bozak, Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk combined for three goals and seven points in the victory. Coach Randy Carlyle used home ice to his advantage by keeping his top players away from Anaheim centers Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler for most of the contest. Bozak has amassed 12 goals and 27 points in 31 games this year.

Tyler Bozak has scored a goal in four straight games.

He got the Leafs off and running with his 12th goal of the season just 27 seconds into Tuesday's contest against Dallas. Bozak has recorded six markers and two assists during a five-game scoring spree. He is enjoying a great year with 23 points in 24 matches and he's been excellent in the faceoff circle with a 56.9 winning percentage.

Tyler Bozak netted two goals for the Maple Leafs in their 6-2 victory against the Capitals on Saturday night.

The pivot scored both of his markers in the second period, to give him 11 on the season, along with 22 points. Bozak has been on fire lately, as he has points in four straight games and five goals over that span. Morgan Rielly and Joffrey Lupul each picked up a goal and an assist. David Clarkson and Cody Franson notched the other goals. James van Riemsdyk, Jake Gardiner and Phil Kessel chipped in with two assists.
