Defenseman Mark Pysyk has been released from the hospital after collapsing Saturday afternoon, Buffalo Sabres coach Ted Nolan told the Buffalo News.

"It seems everything is OK and that's a great thing," Nolan said.

Pysyk, who was reassigned by the Sabres to Rochester of the American Hockey League on Friday and played in the Americans' 4-3 overtime loss to the Toronto Marlies that night, was playing pick-up basketball when he collapsed, according to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.

Dubas explains value of hockey analytics at Sloan

BOSTON -- Kyle Dubas was putting the finishing touches on his list of prospects for the 2015 NHL Draft when he noticed a troubling trend.

The ones who played in the IIHF World Junior Championship were, relatively speaking, ranked higher than similar prospects who did not. Dubas found this to be a form of bias, something he was desperately trying to weed out of his rankings.

"Does playing in the world juniors at 17 make you a better prospect than someone that doesn't?" Dubas said during his presentation of "How Analytics has Limited the Impact of Cognitive Bias on Personnel Decisions" at the 2015 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. "I don't think so. I think we know that from years of going through and measuring at different points."

Dubas, whose hire as an assistant general manager by the Toronto Maple Leafs was the highlight of the NHL's "Summer of Analytics" in 2014, spoke for more than 20 minutes Saturday about his experiences as general manager of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

The Anaheim Ducks acquired forward Tomas Fleischmann from the Florida Panthers on Saturday in a trade for forward Dany Heatley and a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

"It has been pretty obvious that we aren't skilled enough," Ducks general manager Bob Murray said, according to the Orange County Register. "He brings skill and smarts."

Fleischmann, 30, has seven goals and 21 points in 50 games this season. He had career highs of 27 goals and 61 points in 2011-12, his first season with the Panthers.

"We did what we had to do, for our case and for Fleischmann,'' Panthers GM Dale Tallon said, according to the Miami Herald. "[Fleischmann] is a real pro, a real good guy. It was all about performance.''

The Washington Capitals acquired defenseman Tim Gleason from the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday in a trade for defenseman Jack Hillen and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

"I'm pretty excited, obviously," Gleason said. "It's a playoff team … so this is real exciting to be in the race. I'm really looking forward to moving along here."

Washington hosts the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday. Gleason played against the Capitals for the Hurricanes on Friday in Carolina.

"It's funny how things work, you play these guys last night," Gleason said. "You have some battles on the ice, and words said, and this and that, and low and behold you're playing with those guys the next day.

"I'll be shaking hands with those guys."
