BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo is set to play in a summer league game in his next step recovering from an undisclosed illness that placed his future in question in March.
"Da Beauty League " announced on its Twitter account that Okposo will make his debut on Wednesday night. The six-team league features a combination of mostly American-born professional and college players competing in four-on-four formatted games in Edina, Minnesota.
Okposo was sidelined after feeling ill on March 28, and spent a week undergoing tests at Buffalo General Hospital's neurosurgical intensive care unit. The Sabres have cited medical privacy laws in declining to reveal the nature of the illness.
