Ken Klee is a Coyote.

Boy, that has even more ring to it than “Ken Klee clears waivers.”

Phoenix claimed the defenseman off re-entry waivers from the Ducks, and each team is responsible for half of Klee’s $1.25 million salary the rest of this year.

In case you’re counting at home, that means Klee and Todd Bertuzzi are still on the books for approximately $2 million this season, and the Ducks are about $1 million below the NHL’s $56.7 million salary cap.
