On Friday, former National Hockey League (NHL) goaltender turned NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes said the 29-year-old athlete was soon to sign a one-year contract worth $7 million with the California training.
Considered the most attractive defender without a contract for the next campaign, Klingberg replaced his longtime agent, Peter Wallen, with the company Newport Sports Management this week.
Fifth-round pick (131st overall) in the 2010 draft, the Swede played his entire career with the Dallas Stars. In 552 NHL games, Klingberg hit the target 71 times and provided 303 assists for 374 points.
