Kevin Klein will dress today, Dylan McIlrath to sit

In case you missed it, Kevin Klein will return after missing exactly one game with a broken thumb. He will play and Dylan McIlrath will sit. It is certainly good news that Klein is back, but I was honestly hoping to get an extended look at McIlrath. Oh well.

The Kevin Klein injury presents an opportunity to get better long-term defense results

The Rangers will be without defenseman Kevin Klein for the foreseeable future with a broken thumb, and the injury came at the worst possible time. Klein has been arguably the Rangers’ best defenseman, and absolutely the best right-handed defenseman. Dylan McIlrath will get extended playing time, likely with Keith Yandle. On paper, the drop-off from […] The post The Kevin Klein...

Klein Out Indefinitely… Again

#NYR Kevin Klein suffered a fractured thumb and will be sidelined indefinitely. — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 3, 2016 Gotta feel for Klein. Second long term injury this season. This is one way to get McIlrath back into the lineup. Again not the ideal way for him to play. And if history repeats itself as it did in December, it’s going to be an ugly February. For those...

Strong play from Kevin Klein stabilizing Rangers defense this season

We’re at the halfway point of the 2015-16 season and one thing that’s been readily apparent about the Rangers so far is that their often vaunted defensive game has struggled. Although the team has improved considerably in the recent weeks, it’s no secret that their defense corp is not what it once was, with injuries catching […] The post Strong play from Kevin Klein stabilizing...

Klein Out 2-3 Weeks

#NYR Injury Update: Kevin Klein has a strained oblique and will miss 2-3 weeks of action — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) December 1, 2015 For the time being, I would expect the Rangers to go with what they have given they’re at home at least through next week.

Rangers In No Rush To Trade Kevin Klein

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...

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.

Rangers’ Kevin Klein Lost Part Of Ear, Had It Reattached, Scored OT Goal (Video)

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...
