Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with restricted free agent winger Patrick Kaleta. Kaleta was previously scheduled for a club elected arbitration hearing later this month.
Kaleta (6/8/1986, 5’11”, 205 lbs.) set career-highs in goals (10), points (15) and games played (55) during the 2009-2010 season. Kaleta also picked up two points (1+1) in six playoff games. Overall, the Angola, NY native has appeared in 153 NHL games with Buffalo, collecting 31 points (17+14) and 241 penalty minutes.
Kaleta was selected by the Sabres in the sixth-round (176th overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
