Kevin Klein picked up two assists on Saturday to give him eight points this season.

Klein has four goals and four assists as he has surprisingly given the Rangers some unexpected scoring this season. He was not expected to do this as his usual fantasy assets have been hits and blocked shots. If you drafted him, you have to be thrilled with his start.
Nov 30 - 8:36 AM

Kevin Klein has already tied his career-high for goals scored in a single season.

Klein found the back of the net in the Rangers' 2-0 victory on Wednesday, giving him four markers in 18 games. He previously reached that mark in 2008-09 and 2011-12, but obviously with most of the season still ahead of him, there's a good chance Klein will set a new personal best.

Kevin Klein (foot) is expected to play on Wednesday.

The Rangers have already taken the step of sending Dylan McIlrath back to the AHL. Klein has two goals and three points in 10 games in 2014-15.
Nov 5 - 1:26 PM

Kevin Klein will miss at least two games with a foot contusion.

Klein suffered the injury 28 seconds into Saturday's game when he blocked a shot. He was on crutches at practice Sunday but how long he will be out will need to wait until the swelling in his foot subsides. The Rangers are reeling with injuries on the blueline so this extra one hurts.
Nov 3 - 7:14 AM

The swelling hasn't gone down in New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein's foot, so the team wasn't able to provide an update on his condition.

Klein has been ruled out for at least Monday. Klein, 29, has two goals and three points plus seven PIM and a +2 ratings in 10 games with the Rangers this season.
Nov 2 - 1:38 PM

Kevin Klein (foot) will have an MRI on Sunday.

Klein blocked a shot 28 seconds into Saturday’s game and suffered a foot contusion. He has three points in nine games this season. Most importantly, though, he is one of potentially three regular defensemen (Dan Boyle, Ryan McDonagh) who could be missing from the lineup. Expect more specifics to be released Sunday.

Kevin Klein sustained a foot contusion while blocking a shot Saturday night.

Klein was injured when he blocked Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba’s shot 28 seconds into the game. He’d play another shift, and then left the game for good. New York seems to have dodged a bullet here, especially with Ryan McDonagh out with a separated shoulder. The Rangers have been forced to play with four blueliners. Klein has three points this season.
Nov 1 - 8:49 PM

Kevin Klein (face) was able to play on Tuesday.

Klein's status was in doubt after he was struck in the face by the puck in the final seconds of Sunday's game. He went on to score the overtime winner in the Rangers' 4-3 victory over New Jersey.

Kevin Klein was hit in the face by the puck in the dying seconds of Sunday's game.

Klein needed stitches as a result. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault regards his status as day-to-day.
Oct 20 - 8:53 AM

Kevin Klein had his best game as a Ranger on Friday night.

The blueliner had two assists in 18:03 and he blocked three shots. Klein won't wow you in the offensive department -- he has six points on the season -- but he's a steady, stay-at-home blueliner. There was some thought that he could take a seat for Raphael Diaz, but this game should put that on hold for now.
Mar 15 - 9:41 AM

Defenseman Kevin Klein is likely to be a healthy scratch tonight despite scoring the lone goal for the New York Rangers in a 3-1 loss to Carolina on Tuesday.

It was Klein's first goal as a Ranger. Defenseman Raphael Diaz, acquired by the Rangers on March 5, is likely to make his New York debut in the team's game tonight against the Wild in Minnesota.
Mar 13 - 9:56 AM

Kevin Klein scored a goal in the Rangers' 3-1 defeat to Carolina on Tuesday.

It was Klein's first point since the Nashville Predators acquired him on Jan. 22. He has just two goals and four points in 61 games this season.

Kevin Klein made his New York Rangers debut on Thursday.

The Rangers sent Michael Del Zotto to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Klein. He had a shot on goal in 15:46 minutes of play time in his first game with New York. "He did what I expected him to do," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "He's safe and dependable and he's good defensively."
Jan 24 - 7:56 AM

Kevin Klein is expected to join the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Klein was acquired from the Nashville Predators in exchange for Michael Del Zotto. Klein gives the team another right-handed shot, which they needed. The fact that he's signed through 2017-18 also gives them some insurance against Dan Girardi potentially leaving as an unrestricted free agent.
