Head/neck injury lands Kaleta on IR; Sabres recall Weber
Kaleta, who ranks second on the team with 49 hits, was hurt in a 3-2 loss at Montreal last weekend and did not play in a 2-0 loss to Nashville on Monday. The fourth-line player has a goal and assist and 48 penalty minutes in 21 games this season.
The Sabres, who open a three-game road trip at Florida on Thursday, recalled defenseman Mike Weber from their AHL Portland (Maine) affiliate to bolster a banged-up blue line.
