Tim Bozon, a Montreal Canadiens prospect currently starring in the Western Hockey League, is in critical condition in hopsital after being diagnosed with a severe form of meningitis, the WHL stated Wednesday.

"Tim Bozon was admitted to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon on Saturday, March 1 and has been diagnosed with Neisseria Meningitis," the statement says.

"Tim’s parents, Phillippe and Helene Bozon, have been with him at the hospital in Saskatoon since arriving on Sunday from their home in Cureglia, Switzerland. The family has indicated to the WHL that Tim’s condition is critical."

All players from Tim's team the Kootenay Ices and even the team they played against on Friday, the Saskatoon Blades, have been taking antibiotics since the illness can be contagious.

19-year-old Bozon is in his first season with the Ices after being drafted by the Canadiens in the third round of the 2012 draft.

Bozon has 62 points in 50 games this season in Kootenay, after being traded from Kamloops where he played the majority of his WHL career.
