Good news from Buffalo -- Kyle Okposo has reportedly been discharged from hospital.

WIVB-TV cites a source with knowledge of the situation for the report. The same source could not verify Okposo’s illness.

The Sabres have been tight-lipped about Okposo’s situation. The last thing they said came Wednesday: “Kyle continues to be under the care of our doctors as he deals with symptoms from an illness. Out of respect to Kyle and his family, we will have no further comment at this time.”

The Associated Press reported earlier today that Okposo was “showing signs of improving” from the undisclosed illness.
