I read in a GDT thread that he might be going to IR. Is that right? I couldnt find any news on an injury or a move to IR.
Also, who is he likely to be paired with this year?
Yes, he will start the season on IR while recovering from a separated shoulder sustained in the first preseason game.
As for who he will be paired with...your guess is as good as mine. He was in a battle for the 7th defenseman slot, but due to the injury Ville Koistinen has won that spot. We only have 22 on the roster right now though...so Klein might stay on as the 8th defenseman when he recovers.
Most likely Klein will see a voluntary stint in the AHL on a conditioning assignment before he ever sees time in a Nashville uniform this season.
