Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis spent the night in a hospital after feeling "unwell" during the team's game Saturday night, but he has been released, according to multiple media reports.
"During the second period of last night's home opener, Toronto Maple Leafs Senior Vice President and General Manager Dave Nonis felt unwell," the Maple Leafs said in a statement Sunday before his release. "He was assessed by team physicians at Air Canada Centre, and as a precaution, was asked to go to the hospital for further testing. He has progressed very well overnight and is expected to be discharged [Sunday]."
The Maple Leafs' next game is Tuesday at Air Canada Centre against the Colorado Avalanche.
You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
