FILE - In this March 28, 2017, file photo, Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno carries the puck against the Columbus Blue Jackets during an NHL hockey game in Columbus, Ohio. Marcus Foligno has left the leap behind in Buffalo. That doesn’t mean his offensive production can’t or won’t continue to rise in Minnesota. Coming off a career-high 13 goals for the Sabres last season, the soon-to-be-26-year-old was acquired in a trade earlier this summer to bring some needed grit and strength to the left wing position.

FILE - In this Dec. 1, 2016, file photo, Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo (21) is tripped up New York Rangers forward Derek Stepan (20) during an NHL hockey game in Buffalo, N.Y. Okposo has spent the past three days in a Buffalo hospital undergoing a battery of tests to determine an undisclosed illness that has sidelined him for more than a week.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Sabres have not revealed Okposo has been hospitalized. (AP Photo/Jeffrey T. Barnes, File)
