Just as his 10-game suspension comes to an end, controversial Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta has been placed on waivers. If he clears he will be sent down to the franchise’s AHL affiliate Rochester Americans.

Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier’s statement about the decision to send Kaleta to the AHL:

“This was a move we thought was necessary to help Pat change his game and preserve his career in this league. 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.” 

Kaleta will clear waivers by noon Sunday if another NHL team doesn’t pick him up.
