The Buffalo Sabres announced that winger Patrick Kaleta has been released from the hospital after staying overnight following a crushing hit against the boards by Toronto’s Mike Brown when Kaleta was at least semi-defenseless.
Teammate Mike Weber immediately sought out retribution against Brown for the hit, although as the video below shows (courtesy of Hockey Fights.com) he didn’t get much of it.
Kaleta is not making the trip to Boston when Buffalo faces the Bruins tomorrow night. The injury is unfortunate as is, but especially since it will keep Kaleta out against their hated rival.
There’s been no word yet on how long Kaleta may be out.
