Not in the NHL. But here in France, Bozon is a household name. Tim's grandpa played for the french national team. And his father Philippe was the first french player to ever play in the NHL, and is seen by everyone as the best french hockey skater in history. And he's also a legend in Switzerland, where he played most of his carreer. Tim was not picked on his name, but his blood lines are a big deal.
