Former Gophers standout Kyle Okposo is hospitalized in Buffalo.

There are concerns about the health of former Gophers standout Kyle Okposo. According to a report from WGR-AM reporter Paul Hamilton, the St. Paul native is hospitalized and is undergoing tests.

According to the report, Okposo is hospitalized in intensive care in the Neuro Surgical ICU at Buffalo General Hospital.

The Sabres released a statement Wednesday evening.

"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."

Earlier in the day Sabres coach Dan Bylsma admitted that he is "very concerned" about Okposo's health.

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

Pro Hockey Talk reports that Okposo is out for the remainder of the season. He hasn't played since March 27, but no one has announced a possible diagnosis.
