There was a scary incident in the Air Canada Centre press box on Saturday night.

With his team in a heated battle with the Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis began feeling ill and had to be attended to by arena physicians.

For precautionary reasons, he was then taken to nearby St. Michael's Hospital and kept overnight.

A team spokesman reported on Sunday afternoon that Nonis, who was said to be experiencing "flu-like" symptoms during the game, was discharged from hospital and was now "resting comfortably" at home.

"During the second period of last night's home opener, Toronto Maple Leafs Senior Vice President and General Manager Dave Nonis felt unwell," the team's statement on the incident said. "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 today."
