Penguins' Vokoun out of the hospital

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun is out of the hospital and resting at home, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday.

Vokoun had been hospitalized since Saturday when he had a procedure performed to dissolve a blood clot in his pelvis.

There is no timetable for him to return to the team.

Vokoun went 13-4-0 with a 2.45 goals-against average in 20 regular season games for the Penguins last season, and went 6-5 with a 2.01 GAA in 11 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He replaced Marc-Andre Fleury as starter for Game 5 of the team's first-round series against the New York Islanders, and backstopped the Penguins to the Eastern Conference Final.

Quote of the Day

I'm here to develop a winning culture and a winning team. There is a bright future ahead of this team.  A lot of young, great hockey players here and on the way … a fan base that's passionate about the game of hockey.

— Dan Bylsma after being introduced as new coach of the Buffalo Sabres
