Klein (ankle) appears set to play Wednesday against the Red Wings, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Klein looked like a full participant during the Rangers' morning skate and didn't stick on the ice for extra work with the expected healthy scratches, eliminating most of the concern that the bruised foot would knock him out for another game. Though Klein is not a top-notch blueliner by any means, his availability is a much-needed development for the Rangers, who will be without John Moore (suspension), Dan Boyle (hand) and Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) on Wednesday.

Klein (foot) is not expected to be available for Wednesday's tilt with the Red Wings, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Klein is still experiencing some swelling in his foot, and won't be reevaluated for a few more days, so there's a good chance he won't be back until sometime next week.

Klein (ankle) has swelling in his foot and will not play Monday.

Klein will likely be evaluated once the swelling goes down, but the fact that it is still pretty swollen is not a good sign. He will miss Monday at a minimum, but could be out longer than that.

Klein (ankle) was spotted on crutches, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Klein was hurt after blocking a shot Saturday, and the crutches are likely a result of that injury. His foot was not in an ankle or boot at all, which may indicate that the injury is not as serious as crutches may indicate. His next chance to return will be Monday against the Blues, but he will likely be questionable for that game.

Klein registered a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-4 win over Minnesota.

Klein, who has never been known for his overwhelming offensive production now has two goals and three points in his last two games. With John Moore possible headed for a modest suspension, Klein could be considered for the team's second power play unit, but either way, he's not likely to continue this offensive outburst, so owners in most formats will want to continue monitoring from afar.

Klein's first goal of the year was the game-winner in overtime Tuesday against the Devils.

The first goal of the year for a Rangers blueliner, it was also the first point of the season for the stay-at-home Klein, who had Chris Kreider leave a perfect drop pass for him in the high slot, creating a wide-open chance that he converted. Don't expect Klein to produce offense often, but he's shown that he can step up into the play here and there.
