Sabres place right-winger Kaleta on IR; recall defenceman Weber @NHLdotcom

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Hard-hitting Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta is out indefinitely after being placed on injured reserve Thursday because of a head and neck injury.

Kaleta, who ranks second on the team with 49 hits, was hurt in a 3-2 loss at Montreal last weekend and did not play in a 2-0 loss to Nashville on Monday. The fourth-line player has a goal and assist and 48 penalty minutes in 21 games this season.

The Sabres, who open a three-game road trip at Florida on Thursday, recalled defenceman Mike Weber from their AHL Portland (Maine) affiliate to bolster a banged-up blue-line.
