The Buffalo Sabres say left wing Evander Kane won't play Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators after missing practice on Monday.

Coach Dan Bylsma says Kane attended the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto on Sunday night and slept in the next morning, missing practice. Bylsma says he is "disappointed" that the forward broke a team rule.

The 24-year-old Kane has 16 goals and 8 assists in 47 games with Buffalo this season after being acquired from Winnipeg last year.
