A HockeyBuzz Q & A with The Buffalo Sabres Homegrown Patrick Kaleta.

INTRO

SC07: Patrick do you have a minute?
PK: Sure.

SC07: I wanted to ask you a few questions for HockeyBuzz.
PK: No problem

THE PLAYER

SC07: What was your favorite team when you were a kid?
PK: The Sabres

SC07: Patrick how did it feel to be drafted by the team you grew up rooting for?
PK: It was really a dream come true.

SC07: Patrick, who was your childhood idol?
PK: Michael Peca

SC07: Is he also your favorite player?
PK: Yes Definitely

SC07: Who do you pattern your game after?
PK: Michael Peca

SC07: Pat I often call you a human scud missile. The way you go out and hit anything in an
opposing sweater is amazing.
PK: (laughs a bit and gives a big smile)

SC07: Where do you see your career in 5 years from now?
PK: Hopefully playing for the Buffalo Sabres
SC07: What is the highlight of your career to this point?
PK: My first NHL game. It was awesome.

SC07: Pat, what are your personal goal(s) for this upcoming season?
PK: Make the Sabres.

SC07: At any point or out of camp?
PK: Out of training camp for sure.

THE PERSON

SC07: What is your favorite band / group or musician?
PK: I'd have to say Nickelback
SC07: What are your hobbies outside of hockey?
PK: A little bit of lacrosse. I also have been know to rock out the occasional 3D
puzzle.

SC07: Pat do you ever read HockeyBuzz?
PK: I have checked it out a few times.

SC07: Thanks for taking the time to talk with me & good luck this year.
PK: No problem and thanks.

I'd like to thank Patrick for his time. He was openly receptive to taking the time out to talk with me. He is a great kid with a promising future. I really feel bad for opposing players who will have to face him in camp this year. He is dead set on making this club from day 1. Well Patrick if you get to see this. Thanks again & good luck in camp.

Check in for Friday for a Q & A with Tim Kennedy

SC7, you should really be a ''Blogging the NHL'' blogger here at HB. Why don't you guys have more than one blogger anyway? It would be nice to see some different opinions on things. Anyway, great stuff... keep up the good work. I like you're reading you're blogs.

great hitter but has yet to prove his offensive skills. granted he has tons of upside, a lot of time to prove himself, and is a western new york product. frankly, i got his back.
