NEW YORK -- Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for high sticking Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris in NHL Game No. 276 Saturday night in Buffalo, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 17:55 of the second period. Kaleta was assessed a minor penalty for high sticking on the play.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
