Tyler Bozak wants to build on his success last season.
Bozak recorded a personal best 55 points (18 goals, 37 assists) in 78 games. "We expect a lot from each other and everyone wants to improve and get better as a team, so we're excited for things to get going," he said. "As athletes, we always expect to improve and play better as individuals and as a team. We expect to be better than we were last year and we expect each guy to take another step forward. We want to win and that's what we expect to do." Bozak is the longest tenured Maple Leafs player (513 games) and there's a chance he could be traded at some points this year. Sep 12 - 11:07 AM

Tyler Bozak is unlikely to be dealt to the Rangers, according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

Brooks speculated earlier this month that the Rangers may be interested in acquiring the Maple Leafs center, but Bozak's $4.2 million cap hit is an issue. New York would need to buy out Marc Staal by Thursday's deadline, but there is "zero indication" that will occur.

Larry Brooks speculated that the Rangers would be in the hunt for Tyler Bozak if he became available on the trade market.

Brooks went on to list defenseman Nick Holden as a piece that could potentially be involved in such a trade on the Rangers' side. It's an interesting speculation and the idea of the Maple Leafs shopping Bozak, now or in the not-so-distant future, can't be dismissed. Bozak is entering the final season of his five-year, $21 million contract and re-signing him could be an issue for the Maple Leafs given that they'll need to keep money open for William Nylander, Auston Matthews, and Mitchell Marner, who will all likely get big contracts once their entry-level deals are up. Toronto's cap situation at the moment is also a bit tenuous. They are technically significantly over the ceiling, but Nathan Horton and Joffrey Lupul will likely go on the LTIR, which will provide Toronto with considerable relief once the season begins.

Tyler Bozak is set to play in his 500th career game Thursday night.

"It's something you don't expect as an undrafted guy," Bozak said. "It's a pretty big accomplishment that I'm proud of." He joined the Maple Leafs for the 2009-10 season after two seasons with the University of Denver. Bozak currently has 313 total points, including 46 in 64 matches this season.

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.
Mar 10 - 8:48 AM

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.
Mar 9 - 12:53 PM

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.
Mar 3 - 2:28 AM

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.
