Rangers' Kevin Klein (thumb) out indefinitely

New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein is out indefinitely with a fractured thumb.

What It Means:

Klein sustained the injury during Tuesday's game. He has three goals and 10 points in 38 contests in 2015-'16. During his absence, Dylan McIlrath might start playing regularly.

We had Klein projected for two goals and six helpers over the final 29 games, but those numbers will take a hit with this news. He was having a great season in terms of possession. Klein's 4.5 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength blows away his previous career high of -0.1. His 50.0 Corsi For Percentage is close to setting another career high (50.4).
