Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The Buffalo Sabres have placed forward Patrick Kaleta on waivers.

Kaleta is coming off a 10-game suspension for his hit on Columbus defenseman Jack Johnson on Oct. 10. He played in five games before the suspension.

"This was a move we thought was necessary to help Pat change his game and preserve his career in this league," Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said. "We believe in Pat as a person and we hope he will continue his career in our organization and, if the circumstances are right, with the Buffalo Sabres."

The 27-year-old Kaleta has 27 goals and 24 assists to go along with 506 penalty minutes in 306 career contests with the Sabres.

Kaleta, who is no stranger to suspensions, will be eligible to report to the Sabres' AHL affiliate in Rochester if no NHL team claims him on waivers.
