Kaleta undergoes tests at hospital

Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta left Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs with what could be yet another neck injury for the winger.

Kaleta, 26, was taken to the hospital for tests after getting hit late in the first period by gritty forward Mike Brown.

Kaleta has had a history of head and neck problems.

"It's a neck injury," Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff told reporters after the game. "He was X-rayed here and they took a precaution. They took him for some further tests. I have no update."

Ruff was unable to reveal the severity of the injury and how long Kaleta could be sidelined.

In 63 games with the Sabres last season, Kaleta collected five goals and five assists for 10 points, and 116 penalty minutes.
