Nashville, Tenn. (January 19, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed defenseman Kevin Klein to a three-year, $4.05 million contract that runs from the 2010-11 season through the 2012-13 campaign.

Klein, 25 (12/13/84), is averaging 20:12 per game in 2009-10, an increase of more than 7:30 over last year's average ice time (12:39). It the highest season-to-season increase in the League this campaign. Additionally the Kitchener, Ont., native has logged more than 20 minutes 30 times this season after doing so just twice in 81 career contests prior. The 6-1, 201-pound blueliner has appeared in 48 of Nashville’s 49 games this season, and has already tied a career high in assists (8). He is also ranked 21st in the League in blocked shots (93).

In 129 career games since 2005-06, Klein has 24 points (6g-18a) and 40 penalty minutes.
