Kevin Klein officially retires

As broken last week, Kevin Klein was set to retire. His official retirement announcement came this morning. Klein retires after 12 seasons, three with the Rangers.

The Rangers acquired Klein in 2014 for Michael Del Zotto to help solidify the right side of the defense. Klein was somewhat of a marvel on Broadway, setting career highs in goals, assists, and points. Back injuries derailed Klein the last few seasons, which only exacerbated his skating issues.

Klein retires with a line of 38-116-154 in 627 games.
