Report: Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta appealing 10-game suspension

BUFFALO – Sabres winger Patrick Kaleta will be appealing his 10-game suspension, TSN’s Bob McKenzie tweeted this afternoon.

Kaleta consulted with his agent and the NHL Players’ Association following Tuesday’s suspension, according to McKenzie.

The 27-year-old agitator has already served three games for his illegal check to Jack Johnson’s head in Thursday’s 4-1 loss to Columbus.

Kaleta has been suspended four times since 2009-10 and twice in his last 21 games.

The appeal goes to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman first. Kaleta is still suspended through the appeal process.
