The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenceman Ken Klee.

Klee scored three goals and dished out 12 assists in 74 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils last season. He added one goal is six playoff games with the Devils.

In 710 career NHL games with the Maple Leafs, Devils, and Washington Capitals Klee has totals of 50 goals and 105 assists.

''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.''

I thought he was losing "it" last season when he was on Toronto. He became much slower than he was before the lockout, when he was a very solid d-man in Toronto (and previously, Washington).

Maybe he was cuaght off guard with the amount of change in the game the NHL had this year, and he's been working on his foot-speed for this year.

Time will tell.
