Why was Kyle Okposo hospitalized?

Kyle Okposo, a forward for the Buffalo Sabres, is in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit of a Buffalo hospital, undergoing tests for an undisclosed illness that coach Dan Bylsma said has him "very concerned."

Okposo, 28, has been ailing and undergoing tests since March 28. He entered Buffalo General Medical Center on Sunday and later was moved to the ICU, according to WIVB's Tom Martin.

"It's a difficult thing for him to be dealing with now in this situation," Bylsma said (via the Buffalo News) Wednesday. "Very, as a coach and a person, concerned for him and his situation."

WGR radio first reported that Okposo was in the NICU and on Wednesday night the Sabres issued a statement in which they said only:

"Kyle continues to be under the care of our doctors as he deals with symptoms from an illness."
