His job is to, well, agitate. New Buffalo Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma coached against Kaleta from 2008 to 2014. And to say Kaleta didn't get on Bylsma's nerves may be a bit of an understatement. "I have a...

Kaleta faces crossroads in life, career

Patrick Kaleta might have played his last game in a Buffalo sweater. Just don't tell him that.The agitator will turn 29 in June, and as a player who features in the less glamorous side of the game -- killing penalties, defending teammates in brawls, chipping in through small plays to help the team with little glory in return -- Kaleta is unlikely to be a vital part of Buffalo's plan...

Patrick Kaleta Stops Hitting Jared Cowen Momentarily To Punch Himself (Video)

Uh, Patrick Kaleta, you’re doing that whole fighting thing wrong. The Buffalo Sabres forward dropped the gloves with Ottawa Senators defenseman Jared Cowen late in the first period Monday night, but it wasn’t your average bout.

GIF: Patrick Kaleta punches himself in the head

Patrick Kaleta dropping the mitts and engaging in a fight is a pretty common occurrence, but it’s not often you see a guy punch himself in the face. The weirdest part is that the punch to the face looked intentional, as if Kaleta is pumping himself up while the fight was going on. He may have been trying to adjust some equipment and got a little carried. Bizarre.
