KALETA TO MISS AT LEAST THREE WEEKS

Buffalo Sabres Head Coach Lindy Ruff reported that winger Pat Kaleta will miss at least three more weeks with a neck injury he sustained Dec. 19.

Kaleta will wear a hard collar to stabilize his neck after being struck by Los Angeles Kings’ defenseman Denis Gauthier.

“He can still work out and probably skate but his neck has to be immobilized,” Ruff said.

Kaleta previously missed seven games in early December with a similar injury when he took a hard hit in Montreal from Canadiens’ forward Andrei Kostitsyn.

The winger has registered three points (2+1) and 50 penalty minutes through 23 games this season.

Although Kaleta remains out of the lineup, forwards Paul Gaustad and Nathan Gerbe will both return to the ice tonight as the Sabres take on the Washington Capitals at HSBC Arena at 7 p.m.

Gaustad and Gerbe each missed time with an upper body injury; Gaustad absent for five games while Gerbe was out for the last six contests.

“We had some good chemistry with Nathan in there and Paul in there and we are hoping to regain that,” Ruff said.
