TORONTO (AP) -- Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis has been released from the hospital after feeling sick during Saturday night's game.

The team says the 47-year-old executive spent the night in the hospital. He became ''unwell'' during the second period against Ottawa and saw team physicians at Air Canada Centre.

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment said in a statement he went to the hospital as a precaution and for further tests.

Nonis is in his second season as Toronto's general manager.
