Evander Kane is in trouble, again.

The Buffalo Sabres forward will miss Tuesday's game against the Ottawa Senators as punishment for oversleeping and missing practice Monday, Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma said, according to's Joe Yerdon.

Bylsma added that the team will deal with it internally.

Kane attended the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto on Sunday night, unbeknownst to his head coach.

Kane uploaded videos and pictures to Snapchat of his apparent postgame partying, according to Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News, but those have since been deleted.

Bylsma said he had no issue with Kane going to the All-Star Game, but explained there was more than enough time to travel back afterward.

The 24-year-old winger reportedly boarded a private flight to Toronto for the All-Star festivities after the Sabres defeated the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on Sunday afternoon.

A pair of videos of the All-Star Game are still up on Kane's Snapchat account, as is this photo he posted on Instagram on Sunday night.

Thanks to my man @esilver82 for the great seats tonight! #nbaallstargame
