By his own admission, Patrick Kaleta has a bone-breaking attitude when he plays hockey. The Buffalo Sabres’ right winger is known as a tough guy in a tough sport. But that’s his play; it’s not him.

In real life, Patrick is a cool guy with a warm heart, and he’s started a charity in his hometown of Buffalo with some big goals.

LSY! teen reporters Christine Fiorella, Charlotte Christy and Melissa Niemiec from Mount St. Mary Academy caught up with Patrick at his HITS Foundation Christmas party to learn more about how he’s using his fame as a professional athlete to help the community.
