Nashville Predators sign Kevin Klein to 5-year, $14.5M contract

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators signed defenceman 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.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
