Bozak Decides As Does St. Pierre

Tyler Bozak has made up his mind. The Regina product, who was sought after by many NHL teams, has decided to sign with the Maple Leafs as he inked a two year deal with them today. The 23 year old had his last season with Denver cut short because of a knee injury that cost him most of the season. He returned for a game that the team lost to end their season. With five games to go in the season for the Leafs, its not known if he will play this season. People in Saskatoon have a reason to watch Toronto for Luke Schenn and now Reginans have a reason to take in the Leafs.
The man said to be Jeremy O'Day's replacement is a Rider. Word is the team has signed center Jonathan St. Pierre to a contract. He was taken in the 2nd round of last year's draft. It was thought St. Pierre--an Illinois State grad---might see what happened in the NFL draft before making up his mind but that apparently won't happen. With guys like St. Pierre, Shologan and Stadnyk in the mix, you know this team has some guys ready to step in in the upcoming years for some of the vets. Those predicting bad times for this football team may be surprised.

Mitch. I'm about as big a Leafs fan as you are but you gotta admit that Burkie is slowly turning this team around. I think he is ready to add some big time players in the off-season.
