Buffalo Sabres star Kyle Okposo received some good news Friday. He was able to leave the hospital, WIVB-TV reported.

The station reported that Okposo had been in the hospital since Sunday and spent time in the neurological care unit. He has not taken the ice since March 27 when Buffalo played the Columbus Blue Jackets.

What makes his case more interesting is that the illness has not been disclosed.

“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 team said in a statement Wednesday.

According to WIVB-TV, the neurological care unit is usually a space for patients with brain or spinal cord damage.
