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.
Coach Bylsma: Evander Kane missed practice. Broke a team rule. We will be dealing with it internally.— Buffalo Sabres (@BuffaloSabres) February 15, 2016
What could've possibly kept him out so late he missed practice the next day? His Instagram account leaves a clue:
Makes sense. Toronto is just a hop, skip and a jump from Buffalo, after all. As long as it doesn't interfere with your jo-oh, no, Evander:
Evander Kane was at the NBA all-star game yesterday and he called Sabres to say he won't be at practice today. Kane will not play tomorrow.— Scott Swenson (@ScottSwenson4) February 15, 2016
This is not a good look for Kane, who had various off-the-ice indiscretions in Winnipeg that helped necessitate a trade to Buffalo. Since joining the Sabres, however, Kane has been one of their most productive players without incident.
