Phoenix Coyotes claim veteran defenceman Ken Klee off waivers

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ken Klee is on the move again.

The veteran defenceman has been claimed on re-entry waivers by the Phoenix Coyotes.

Klee was acquired by the Anaheim Ducks in a trade earlier this month and played three games with them before being sent to the American Hockey League.

Since he was acquired on re-entry waivers, the remainder of his US$1.25-million salary will be split between Anaheim and Phoenix.

The 37-year-old Klee joins his sixth team since the NHL lockout.

In 866 career regular season games, he has 54 goals and 184 points.
