BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Matt Moulson wants hospitalized Buffalo Sabres teammate Kyle Okposo to know he has the team's support.
"You're family here," Moulson said after the Sabres closed their home schedule with a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. "And no matter what type of injury or what you have, you always feel for them and their family and giving them support."
Okposo has spent the past three days in a Buffalo hospital undergoing a battery of tests to determine an undisclosed illness that has sidelined him for more than a week.
A person with direct knowledge of Okposo's status confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the player is in the neuro surgical intensive care unit at Buffalo General Hospital. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Sabres have not revealed Okposo has been hospitalized.
"Kyle continues to be under the care of our doctors as he deals with symptoms from an illness," the Sabres said in a statement Wednesday night. "Out of respect to Kyle and his family, we will have no further comment at this time."
Buffalo's WGR-Radio first reported the development earlier in the day.
Coach Dan Bylsma would only say Okposo is with team doctors and tests have yet to pinpoint the cause of the illness. >> Read more...
