Tyler Bozak has been white hot over the Maple Leafs' last five games.

The second-line pivot has seven points in those five contests skating between Mitch Marner and James vanRiemsdyk. What's even more impressive is that Bozak has been playing hurt. If for some reason Bozak is a free agent in your hockey pool, we suggest you make a play for him right away.

As expected, Tyler Bozak was OK to play on Thursday night against Philadelphia.

Bozak didn't take part in the morning skate because of an undisclosed injury, but he made an impact in a 4-2 win for the Maple Leafs. He netted his 16th goal of the season in the match after he stripped the puck from Sean Couturier. Bozak also picked up an assist on Mitch Marner's game winner. Toronto has a 19-7-7 record when Bozak accounts for at least one point.

Tyler Bozak didn't take part in the morning skate, but coach Mike Babcock expects him to play Thursday night.

He is being listed as a game-time decision. Bozak acknowledged Monday that his previously infected finger was still bothering him, but it isn't clear if that is the issue here. Nazem Kadri skated between James van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner in Bozak's place Thursday morning.

Tyler Bozak scored in Toronto's 3-2 shootout loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

Bozak's 15th goal ties what he had last year where he only took part in 59 games. His career high is 23, set back in the 2014-15 season. He has 40 points in 59 games and has been a nice snag for fantasy owners at his ADP. Nikita Zaitsev scored the other tally for the Leafs who blew a 2-0 lead in this game.

Tyler Bozak expects to be back in the lineup on Tuesday night against San Jose.

He wasn't able to play versus Montreal on Saturday because of an infected finger on his right hand. "It was brutal," Bozak said. "Every time we went on the ice (after the initial cut), it kept re-opening. I was sitting at home (later in the week) and my hand blew up and I had to go to the hospital. It was a little scary but we got it taken care of and it's feeling a lot better now." Bozak will probably be back between James van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner, who appears to be ready to return as well.
