Source: Okposo Released from Hospital

Tom Martin of News 4 Sports in Buffalo reports that Kyle Okposo has been discharged from Buffalo General Hospital, according to an unnamed source. Okposo was admitted to the hospital on Sunday April 2 and later moved to the neurosurgical intensive care unit (ICU). He last played for the Sabres on March 27th.

According to News 4's report, the source could not verify the illness. The Sabres have been tight-lipped about the nature of Okposo's illness, saying that it was "unspecified."

"It's a difficult situation and a difficult time for Kyle and his family, and we want to do everything we can to be with him and help him through the time that he's in right now," said head coach Dan Bylsma on Wednesday, after declining to comment on any details. "It's something we're all playing with right now."
