Bozak will sign a three-year contract with the Blues worth $5 million AAV, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blues biggest need in free agency was a top-six center. While teams continued to wait on the John Tavares decision, they were able to nab their man. Bozak posted 11 goals and 43 points while averaging 15:39 through 81 games in 2017-18. The 32-year-old will be the Blues' second-line center behind Brayden Schenn.

Bozak made the most of his minutes, scoring a goal and a power-play assist during a 4-3 victory over the Bruins on Saturday. The Bruins still lead the series 3-2.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old played just over 11 minutes, including 31 seconds on the man advantage, and yet, he posted his first multi-point game in nearly a month (March 22). Owners have to love that efficiency, but don't count on his minutes remaining that low. Bozak was averaging 16:26 per game in the first round prior to Game 5, so he very well could be back north of the 16-minute mark on Monday in Game 6. Bozak has two goals and four points in the series.

Bozak picked up a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's win over Nashville.

EDGE Analysis

Bozak has been producing well of late, managing a goal and seven points in his last six games. The third-line center is now sitting on 11 goals and 38 points in 72 games on the season. He's been inconsistent, but Bozak's recent hot stretch makes him worth starting in the majority of deep leagues.

Bozak picked up two assists while adding two shots and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center now has three points, all helpers, in his last two games. It's been a mostly disappointing season for Bozak, who has just 10 goals and 36 points in 69 games while primarily toiling on the third line, but he could be due for a bit of puck luck down the stretch -- he's shooting a career-low 8.1 percent this season, four points lower than his previous floor.

Bozak scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

The goal snapped a 16-game drought for the much-maligned pivot. Bozak's fantasy value is in free-fall this year and with his 32nd birthday quickly approaching, it's not about to come back.

Bozak had a pair of assists in a 4-3 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

On a team like Toronto, scoring will frequently get spread around, and Wednesday was Bozak's turn to step up. He's now contributed four points (one goal, three assists) in the past three games, but before that, he'd failed to score in five of his past six contests. Given the volatility of chances with the Leafs' offense, he's best as a depth player in season-long leagues and a solid daily option while his surge is in progress.

Bozak scored the game-tying goal and netted the shootout winner Saturday against the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Bozak had gone four straight games without recording a point, so Saturday's breakthrough comes at a much-needed time. The third-line center has netted eight goals and 21 points through 42 contests and is a solid depth scorer for the Maple Leafs. He does see some power-play time, but Bozak goes through lengthy scoring droughts and is now overshadowed by the young guns in Toronto, so know what you're getting.

Bozak registered a goal and three assists during Tuesday's 8-1 win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The four-point showing improves Bozak to seven goals and 11 assists for the campaign, which is a considerable downtick in production following last year's 55-point season. Additionally, with Bozak more of a supporting piece when Auston Matthews (upper body) and Nazem Kadri are both in the lineup, it's not out of the question to expect the 31-year-old veteran to continue posting modest offensive numbers moving forward.

Bozak scored a pair of goals and added an assist in a 4-3 victory against the Penguins on Saturday. He also posted a plus-3 rating and five shots on goal.

EDGE Analysis

He began his night with a secondary assist on the Maple Leafs second goal, and then Bozak scored to extend the lead to three at the end of the first period. The Penguins worked to make the game 3-2, but 22 seconds after it became a one-goal game, Bozak scored one a beautiful deflection, where his stick was nearly level with the crossbar. The officiating crew reviewed the goal, and the play stood. Maybe this performance will get Bozak going because he only had four goals and 11 points coming into Saturday.

Bozak (illness) confirmed that he'll play Wednesday against Calgary, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran pivot missed Saturday's loss to Vancouver and hadn't returned to the ice until Wednesday's morning skate. Bozak will fill his normal role as the team's third-line center, where he'll be flanked by James van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner. After recording a career-best 55 points a season ago, Bozak has only 11 points in 27 games this campaign. Much of this drop in production can be attributed to Bozak's decline in power-play scoring, dropping from 0.23 points per game in 2016-17 to 0.15 this season.
