Pens' Vokoun out of the hospital

Pittsburgh goaltender Tomas Vokoun has been released from the hospital and is resting at home, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday.

Vokoun had been hospitalized since undergoing a procedure on Saturday to dissolve a blood clot in his pelvis. There is no timetable for his return.

The 37-year-old Czech supplanted incumbent Penguins starter Marc-Andre Fleury during the playoffs this past spring, going 6-5 with a 2.01 goals-against average and backstopping the club to the Eastern Conference finals.

Vokoun also missed the end of the 2005-06 season and the entire postseason, when he was the starter in Nashville, due to blood clots in his abdomen.
