No word on the cap hit and term yet, but “Bozie” himself has confirmed that he will be returning with the Leafs. Sportsnet were the first to break the news and TSN 1050 Radio’s Rick Ralph has since reported it’s a two-year deal.
As a player who only produced 32 points in a full 82 game season of top six minutes alongside an elite finisher in Phil Kessel, and who is now expected to shift to a bottom six role going forward, you would expect something around $1.5 million per annum. More details as they become available.
Per TSN: “Bozak will reportedly earn $1.95 million over the two seasons of his contract.” $975,000 per annum.
Updated Update: Dreger reports that Bozak will actually make 1.5 million dollars per season over a two year deal.
