Patrick Kaleta (born June 8, 1986, in Angola, New York) is a professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted by the Sabres in the sixth round, 176th overall, of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Career

Kaleta spent his junior hockey career with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL where he compiled 147 points and 460 penalty minutes over four seasons. In the 2006 OHL playoffs, Kaleta scored 8 goals and added 10 assists as Peterborough reached the Memorial Cup. Kaleta signed his first professional contract in June, 2006, with the Buffalo Sabres.

On February 21, 2007, Kaleta was called up from the Rochester Americans by his parent club in Buffalo. In his first NHL game on February 22, 2007, against the Ottawa Senators, he earned his first NHL point, an assist on a goal by Clarke MacArthur, and his first NHL fight against Ottawa's Chris Phillips. Kaleta scored his first NHL goal on February 10, 2008 against the Florida Panthers.

Kaleta recorded his first 2 goal performance on Saturday, December 21, 2012, against the New York Rangers, a 3-0 victory for Buffalo. He scored the game winner on a short-handed breakaway, beating Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist high on the glove side.

Kaleta is just the fourth Buffalo-area resident to play for the hometown Sabres in the regular season. Buffalo's Peter Ciavaglia played in 5 games between 1991 and 1993. Scott Thomas played 39 games for the Sabres between 1992 and 1994. Also, Fort Erie's Randy Burridge played with the Sabres from 1995 to 1998.
