Sabres re-sign Kaleta to multiyear deal

Patrick Kaleta signed a multiyear contract with the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday. The Buffalo News reports the deal is for three years, $3.825 million.

Kaleta, who was a restricted free agent, had five goals and five assists in 63 games for the Sabres last season.

The 6-foot-1, 206-pound forward is known more for his ability to antagonize than to score. He had 116 penalty minutes last season, most on the Sabres, and led the team's forwards with 139 hits.

In 267 career games with the Sabres, Kaleta has 26 goals, 24 assists and 434 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
