Avs Sign Ken Klee
DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche announced Monday that the club has signed veteran defenseman Ken Klee.

Klee, a 6-1, 205-pound defenseman, will enter his 12th NHL season in 2006-07. He joins the Avalanche after having appeared in 710 NHL regular season contests and 51 career playoff games with Washington, Toronto and New Jersey. He spent the majority of last season with Toronto before joining New Jersey late in the year. Klee's professional resume includes appearances with the U.S. World Championship squads in 1992 and 1996 as well as the 2005 U.S. World Cup team.

"Ken gives us another strong, experienced defenseman to solidify our blueline corps," said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere. "He has demonstrated year after year that he can be counted on to take quality minutes and play a solid defensive game and we'll be counting on him to do that for us this season."

A native of Indianapolis, Ind., the 35-year old currently resides in Morrison, Colo.
