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.
