Kevin Klein D NYR 14 Days

Klein logged an assist and a plus-1 rating in Sunday's victory over Pittsburgh.

Here he goes again folks, everytime you think he'll fade into fantasy irrelevance, he pops back up. That's a point in each of his last two tilts. It what has to be his most fantastic fantasy production season, the 30-year-old just keeps surpassing expectations. Having already doubled his career high in goals scored with eight, Klein, who has 17 points in 42 games, is now zooming in on shattering his career-high 21-point campaign with Nashville in 2011-12.

Klein scored his eighth goal of the year and chipped in four blocks and five hits Thursday in a 4-3 win over the Kings.

He doesn't play a lot of minutes -- less than 16 in this one -- and yet Klein seems to constantly be in the middle of things for the Rangers. He's rolling along with a four-game point streak, and his improved offensive touch combined with his terrific plus-minus and defensive stats adds up to a legit asset for deeper formats.

Klein recorded an assist and finished plus-2 in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Sabres.

Klein's offense hasn't quite dried up just yet, as he's now picked up assists in back-to-back contests. Even so, it's probably best to peg him for a regression the rest of the season. Much of his value has been built on his career-high seven goals, which have come on a sky-high 17.9 percent shooting rate.

Klein (ear) will be in the lineup Saturday against the Canucks, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Klein needed a portion of his ear to being reattached with stitches during Monday's game, but it didn't stop him from reentering the contest and scoring the game-winning goal. He would undergo plastic surgery on the ear after the game, and now that everything appears to be normal, he'll suit up again Saturday. Such is the life of a hockey player.

Klein needed 13-14 stitches to reattach a portion of his ear after Monday's game against the Penguins, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Klein seemed in good spirits after Monday's game and doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing the Rangers' upcoming game against the Canucks on Saturday. Despite suffering the gruesome injury off a high-stick, he managed to spend just under 19 minutes on the ice Monday.

Klein notched two assists, seven hits and three blocked shots in a 5-2 win over the Flyers on Saturday.

Since coming over from Nashville, Klein has steadily become one of Alain Vigneault's most trusted defenders and had another monster game against Philadelphia to help his clause. Though he's known to be a defensive defenseman, Klein is pitching in all areas of the game. His seven hits and three blocked shots were both team-highs. However, his fantasy value remains minimal due to his relatively low production compared to his more offensively-inclined peers. Klein now has eight points in 22 games this year.

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.
