Publish date:

Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta has been suspended for four games by the NHL for head-butting Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek, according to the Associated Press.

Kaleta had a hearing today with NHL senior vice president of player safety and hockey operations, Brendan Shanahan, to discuss the incident.

This is not Kaleta’s first documented head-butt in an NHL game. Earlier this season, Kaleta was fined by the league for his attempted head-butt on New Jersey Devils’ Travis Zajac.
