  • Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Feels confident he can play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/25/17) Okposo (illness) penned an open letter Tuesday, thanking family and teammates for their support and indicating that he expects to be ready for the start of the season.

    "I know I can play again," Okposo wrote, opening up about his battle with weight loss, inability to sleep, and an adverse reaction to medication that sent him to the intensive care unit at Buffalo General. He missed the final stretch of the season due to his condition, finishing with 19 goals and 45 points in 65 games. Okposo said he's been in touch with new head coach Phil Housley and new general manager Jason Botterill, and reiterated his optimism about the Sabres' ability to win the Stanley Cup. The talented winger is expected to play a big role on the top line next to Ryan O'Reilly, and he should easily reach 20 goals and 50 points if his health holds up.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Suits up in summer league

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/20/17) Okposo (concussion) hit the ice as part of Da Beauty League on Wednesday.

    While it may be just a semi-competitive summer league, the fact that Okposo is playing hockey again should be an encouraging sign for fantasy owners. After spending the end of the 2016-17 campaign in the ICU due to medication complications, the winger appears to be working his way back to game readiness in preparation of training camp. Once cleared, the 29-year-old is a near lock to return to the first line as well as the top power-play unit.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Expected to recover, attend camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/15/17) General manager Jason Botterill says Okposo (concussion) "should be ready for camp," Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    It was a scary finish to the season for Okposo, who was sent to intensive care after suffering adverse effects from medication, forcing him to miss the final six games. He finished with 19 goals and 45 points in 65 games in his first season in Buffalo, and also tied a career-high 23 power-play points. The Sabres should be making some big changes after a disappointing and frustrating season, but Okposo's considered one of the team's top players and will likely remain the team's top right winger.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Expected to be ready for camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/16/17) The Sabres expect Okposo (concussion) to be available at the start of camp, Sportsnet reports.

    Okposo suffered a concussion in late March and experienced adverse effects from medication, which landed him in intensive care. This is great news, although training camp is still many months away. Okposo scored 19 goals and 45 points in 65 games in his first season with Buffalo, and if he reports to camp 100 percent healthy, he'll surely put up similar or better numbers in the 2017-18 season. He's expected to remain Buffalo's top right winger as the team focuses on fixing its defense.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Put through scary situation

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/12/17) Okposo reportedly suffered a concussion in late March as well as an adverse reaction to medication to treat the injury that landed him in the neurological intensive care unit in a Buffalo hospital, The Buffalo News reports.

    One of the few things scarier than a concussion is a negative reaction to the treatment of it, and that reportedly at one point had Okposo's life and career in some sort of danger. It does appear that whatever the specifics, Okposo is on the road to recovery -- the report even states the forward could end up being fine for summer training camp.
