Tyler Bozak will be back in Toronto’s lineup tonight at home to the Blue Jackets.

For the 27-year-old center, the game will be his first since Oct. 25 when he suffered a hamstring injury in Columbus.

Apparently Bozak had wanted to play Saturday versus Washington, but the doctors wouldn’t let him.

Toronto went 7-4-1 without Bozak, who signed a five-year, $21 million contract extension in July.

The Leafs are still waiting for the return of Dave Bolland, who’s out indefinitely after ankle surgery.
