Kaleta was eligible to return to action on Saturday as his ten-game suspension for a head shot on Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson expired. Instead, the Sabres decided to send a message to Kaleta: clean up your game, and then we'll talk about bringing you back to the NHL.

Kaleta has been suspended three times in his career. He was benched for five games for checking Brad Richards from behind in March and four games for headbutting Jakub Voracek in 2011. Kaleta hasn't recorded a point this season for Buffalo, and clearly the Sabres have had enough with Kaleta's antics.
