Kahun (knee) will not play on Wednesday.

Kahun was acquired from the Penguins on Monday but his knee injury will keep him from making his Sabres debut on Wednesday. Head coach Ralph Krueger wants him to get into a practice before he plays, so monitor his status leading up to their Friday/Saturday back-to-back.

Simmonds will make his Sabres debut on Wednesday.

Simmonds was acquired from the Devils on Monday and will make his debut tonight in Colorado. Simmonds is expected to start on a line with Marcus Johansson and Jeff Skinner and should see some power-play time as well. He hasn't had the best year, posting just 24 points (8G / 16A) in 61 games but could see increased usage with the Sabres.

Hutton will start Wednesday in Colorado.

Hutton stopped 41 of 43 shots in the Sabres win in Pittsburgh last Saturday. Hutton has been excellent in his last six starts, going 5-1-0 with a 2.83 GAA and .916 SV%. As good as he's been, the Avalanche come in playing very well too. They've gone 11-3-1 while averaging 3.20 goals for and 1.93 goals against in their last 15 games.
