NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators signed defenseman Kevin Klein to a five-year, $14.5 million contract Saturday.

The 27-year-old Klein had four goals and 17 assists in 66 regular-season games last season, and added two goals and two assists in 10 playoff games. In 309 career games, he has 12 goals and 53 assists.
