Ken Klee clears waivers. Update.

Apparently none of the other 29 NHL teams wanted to pick up the 37-year-old defenseman at $1.25 million, a contract which expires at season’s end.

Even if he is sent to the minors, Klee is on a one-way deal, which means that salary will count against the Ducks’ cap. The Ducks do not play again this week until Friday in Ottawa.

UPDATE (3:30 p.m.): Klee is remaining in Anaheim during the road trip and isn’t planning on accompanying the team to Ottawa. That could change, but for now he’s waiting for the Ducks to make an executive decision on his future.
