The 6-1, 195-pound defenseman ranked third among Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) blueliners with 20 points (5g-15a) in 70 games in 2006-07. Klein was originally Nashville’s third choice, 37th overall (second round), in the 2003 Entry Draft.

 Klein will be paid $500,000 at the NHL level and $70,000 at the minor-league level in 2007-08.

Thuresson’s contract is a three-year deal that will pay him $475,000 in the first season, $500,000 in the second season and $525,000 in the third season at the NHL level.  He will be paid $60,000 at the minor-league level throughout the length of the contract.
