French national team forward Tim Bozon is in critical condition at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Canada, after being diagnosed with Neisseria Meningitis.

Bozon, who was selected in the third round, 64th overall, by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2012 NHL draft and is currently playing with the Western Hockey League's Kootenay Ice, was admitted to hospital on 1st March. He played in a game against Saskatoon the night before and recorded a goal in a 4-2 win for Kootenay.

Meningitis is an inflammation of membranes around the brain and spinal cord, and can be fatal if not treated quickly.

His parents, Philippe and Helene, arrived in Saskatoon from their home in Switzerland. Philippe Bozon played for the French national team in four Olympic Games and eight World Championships. His father Alain, Tim’s grandfather, is a member of the French Ice Hockey Hall of Fame.
