Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta won’t wear ‘RoboCop’ visor in game

BUFFALO – Sabres winger Patrick Kaleta spent weeks experimenting with different forms of facial protection after essentially breaking his face Sept. 28.

The agitator finally settled on a standard-looking tinted visor to help his vision problems.

Today, however, Kaleta practiced looking like RoboCop, wearing a shiny, mirrored visor.

Relax, he has no plans to wear it in a game.

“Oakley made it up,” Kaleta said this afternoon inside the First Niagara Center. “I was just trying it out today. I’m wearing the other one.”

He added: “I was just basically test-driving a car.”

If the mirrored visor made Kaleta’s eyesight better, he would have looked into wearing it, he said. NHL players can’t wear “glitzy” visors like that, though.
