The Buffalo News reported the news Saturday.
Kaleta, 27, was injured Friday when the Rochester Americans played the Lake Erie Monsters. Kaleta crashed into Lake Erie goalie Calvin Pickard and his leg struck the crossbar. He had a goal and three assists in seven games with the Americans after being sent down by the Sabres on Nov. 3.

An NHL pro scout, after watching the Buffalo Sabres, said: “Ryan Miller is about all they’ve got. He’s playing unreal.” So where do the Sabres send the goalie at the trade deadline? Are the New York Islanders on his list of teams he’d play for? Are the Nashville Predators, if Pekka Rinne is out for longer than they thought?
- I find it interesting that the NHL was dead...
Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres is close to being traded to the New York Islanders. The 33 year old unrestricted free agent is coming off a $6.25 million per season contract. Miller is looking to make the USA 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics team and requested a trade to a NHL contender to help showcase his abilities.
The Islanders were successful last season, making the playoffs. The success from
Christian Ehrhoff scored 38 seconds into overtime and the Buffalo Sabres snapped a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.
Matt Moulson and Luke Adam also scored for the Sabres, who got 22 saves from Ryan Miller and came from behind twice to force overtime.
Nikolai Kulemin and Phil Kessel scored for Toronto, which has lost six straight...
As the Buffalo Sabres tweeted out this morning, on this day in 1969, Buffalo was awarded an NHL franchise.
At that time, if I knew the Sabres would be around for 40+ years, I would have expected them to win a Cup. They've only been close a couple of times and we're still waiting for it. Some fans have waited their entire lives.
I would like to witness at least one...
Christian Ehrhoff scored the game-winner in overtime of Friday’s Sabres-Maple Leafs game when he snuck a point shot through the gap between Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Carl Gunnarsson’s skate blade and boot. Ehrhoff’s shot just barely snuck in through the spacing on its way to beating James Reimer five-hole. It was one of those “better to be lucky than good” moments...
Now, this is what you call “threading the needle.”
The Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs went into overtime Friday night, so Sabre’s defenseman Christian Ehrhoff‘s game-winning goal was a welcome sight just 38 seconds into the extra period. Ehrhoff’s stickwork and eventual goal were impressive enough, but thanks to some slowed down footage from Fansided, we can see...
Christian Ehrhoff scored 38 seconds into overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs at First Niagara Center on Friday.
Ehrhoff's goal came just as a penalty to Toronto's Paul Ranger ended, and the shot from the point beat Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer through the five-hole. It was Ehrhoff's second goal of the season.
The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch must be doing triple time this weekend. He's offered all but "embedded" coverage of Daniel Alfredsson's return to Ottawa, but he still found the time to posit his weekly roundup of trade rumors, and he leads off with the suggestion that the New York Islanders and Buffalo Sabres may make another blockbuster trade:
After discussing the impacts of the new Rogers television deal with the NHL and how it may elevate the cap floor to $60 to 70$ over the course of the next few years, tonight on Hockey Night in Canada’s Hotstove Tonight panel discussion contained one juicy nugget of information relating to the Ottawa Senators.

The Toronto Maple Leafs had a different kind of Black Friday in Buffalo, as they held a lead on two separate occasions but could not put away the 30th place Sabres and lost a 3-2 overtime decision at the First Niagara Center.
Christian Ehrhoff scored the game winner 38 seconds into overtime, seconds after Toronto defenseman Paul Ranger escaped the penalty box to give Buffalo...
