Everything you need to know about Buffalo Sabres at Colorado Avalanche – The Denver Post

BUFFALO AT COLORADO, 7 p.m. Tuesday, ALT, 950 AM

Spotlight on Evander Kane:

The Sabres forward leads the team with 12 goals and 24 points but probably won’t finish his third season with Buffalo if he doesn’t sign a contract extension before the March 1 trade deadline. Kane, 26, can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, making him a valuable rental player for a contending playoff team. With just six wins in 27 games, the Sabres are on track to be trade-deadline sellers, and Kane could bring them a sizable return.

NOTEBOOK

Sabres: They waived Matt Moulson on Monday, and the forward will report to Rochester of the American Hockey League if he clears waivers Tuesday. Moulson, 34, was scoreless in 14 games this season, his fifth with Buffalo. … Former Avalanche forward Ryan O’Reilly is minus-19, tied for the NHL’s worst rating with Arizona defenseman Oliver-Ekman Larsson. Buffalo (16 points) and Arizona (19) are the NHL’s two weakest teams, and they combined to have the six worst plus-minus players in the league. … The Sabres on Monday acquired forward Scott Wilson from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019. … Buffalo is minus-38 in goal differential and is allowing a league-most 3.44 goals-per-game.

Avalanche: Center Dominic Toninato, a first-year pro from Minnesota Duluth, was reassigned to San Antonio of the American Hockey League on Monday, and winger Rocco Grimaldi was called up from the Rampage. Grimaldi is expected to play right wing on the Alex Kerfoot-centered line with Tyson Jost. … Captain Gabe Landeskog will serve the final game of his four-game suspension for his cross check on Calgary’s Matthew Tkachuk. Landeskog practiced Monday with Kerfoot and Jost while J.T. Compher continues to replace Landeskog on the top line with center Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen. … Forward Colin Wilson, who has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, is cleared to play and expected to center the fourth line, replacing Toninato. … Semyon Varlamov will start in goal. … Defenseman Patrik Nemeth practiced with contact Monday but is a game or two away from returning to the lineup. Nemeth has missed the last 11 games with a back injury.
