Buffalo Sabres winger Evander Kane might've enjoyed the 2016 NBA All-Star Game in Toronto a little too much.

On Monday morning, Sabres coach Dan Bylsma announced the winger would not play on Tuesday against the Ottawa Senators, only specifying that the talented winger "broke a team rule" by missing practice.
