Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill issued the following statement Wednesday in regards to Sabres defenseman Matt Hunwick:

"After further medical evaluation this offseason, we unfortunately do not expect that Matt will be physically able to play this upcoming season due to a neck condition."

The Sabres acquired Hunwick last summer in a trade with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He recorded two points in 14 games in 2018-19 after missing the first 30 games of the season due to a neck injury.
