The rosters are taking shape, and the Rangers are down to their last few decisions to make. Dylan McIlrath and Jarret Stoll will get looks tonight in what could be their roles as regulars while Tanner Glass and Kevin Klein watch from above. It wouldn’t shock me to see Glass and Klein in for the […]
Much was made yesterday of Alain Vigneault’s decision to dress defenseman Kevin Klein back-to-back nights this week given the developing competition for the final spots on the blueline in training camp. On the one hand, Klein only dressed Monday because Dan Boyle was a last minute scratch, so perhaps some are reading into it too much. However, there were many […]
In Elliotte Friedman’s final column of the summer, there’s was a mention regarding Kevin Klein and how apt the Rangers were to moving him out for increased cap space…. “I’ve heard they’ve been asked about Kevin Klein, but don’t want to go that route. He’s signed for three more years at a very reasonable $2.9 million — not easy to replace at that cost. In a perfect...
It’s no secret that the New York Rangers are in a bit of a cap crunch. They are already deep in conversations to clear $1.45 million by trading Cam Talbot, but even that’s not enough to sign their four key RFAs.

Klein has been out with an injury since blocking a shot taken by Alex Ovechkin on March 11, and, in spite of a recent announcement claiming he’d be ready for game 1, it looks as though he...
New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein lost a piece of his ear on Monday night, but it didn’t stop him from winning a game for his team. Klein took a high stick from Pittsburgh Penguins forward Zach Sill in the first period, and his ear was bleeding pretty badly. He went into the locker room...Read More
Tough might be an understatement when it comes to describing Kevin Klein on Monday night. The New York Rangers defenseman took a high stick to the ear from Pittsburgh Penguins forward Zach Still during the first period of their matchup, and there was quite a bit of blood. But, as most NHL players do, Klein received some stitches and reentered the game. In fact, he ended up scoring...
The New York Rangers have had an inconsistent start to the season, at times looking almost unbeatable, at times sluggish and uninspired. Overall, however, there are more positive aspects of the Rangers’ game than negatives, and improved consistent play should be expected in the coming months. One of those positive aspects so far has been the play of Kevin Klein, who has done almost...
