Tyler Bozak will play tonight as the undefeated Leafs take on the New York Islanders at home. The first line center, who was struck with a puck in the ear during practice yesterday, will stick it out and play as expected.
Playing with Phil Kessel and Kris Versteeg has been an excellent fit for the young pivot as he has three assists in his first four games. The 24-year-old also produced 27 points in 37 games last season for the Leafs, centering Kessel.
In his only game against the Islanders in his young career he was held pointless with a -1 rating.
