Sabres' Okposo suffers yet another concussion

18 novembre 2019
The Buffalo Sabres have announced that veteran forward Kyle Okposo is out indefinitely after being diagnosed with a concussion. This is his fourth in just over two and a half years.

Okposo was hurt in the Sabres' 4-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. With five minutes left in the third period, he accidentally collided with Sens' defenseman Ron Hainsey.

The 31-year old suffered a serious concussion in the final two weeks of the 2017-18 season, spending nearly a week in hospital. The injury happened in practice in what was described as a routine hit. In March of 2018, he missed three games after a collision with Ottawa's Bobby Ryan. He also missed a week last February when punched in the face by New York Rangers defenceman Tony DeAngelo.

The 31-year-old is in his 13th season in the NHL and his fourth with Buffalo. He has a goal and five points in 19 games.

The Sabres also announced that centre Tage Thompson will miss three to five weeks with an upper-body injury after being hurt in a 4-1 loss to Chicago Sunday. He had been called up from the minors to replace Okposo.
